Who invented first car?

The first car which was steam powered was invented by Ferdinand Verbiest in 1672 in China. Nicholas Cugnot was the one to design and build the first car that was self propelled in 1769 which had three wheels. A Swiss inventor, Francois Isaac Rivaz, designed and invented the first car that used the mixture of hydrogen and oxygen as a fuel, the car with an internal combustion engine in the year 1806. The car was not successful. It was in the year 1885 that a car run by gasoline was designed and built by Karl Benz, in Germany. The car got its patent in 1886. He was the one to be considered as the inventor of the first car. His inventions also add an in built combustion flat engine car, eleven years later, in 1896.

The other person who has been credited as the inventor of the car is Gottlieb Daimler but Benz was the one to get his design patented first.

Later both of them merged their companies as Daimler- Benz, the company which manufactures the brand cars; Mercedes Benz. The brand got the name from the person named, Emil Jellinek who sold Daimler- Benz cars and finally decided to sell these cars in the name of his daughter Mercedes.

The history of cars has changed from steam, combustion, gasoline to petrol and diesel and the long ago designed cars have been left far behind in this race.
