In the early days, cars were equipped with a steam engine. Today, a car is usually powered by an internal combustion engine. This gets its energy from the combustion of petrol, diesel or autogas. Increasingly strict environmental legislation and modern technological developments mean that more and more passenger cars with electric drive are entering the market. Another development is the use of two engines, so-called hybrids. The car will then have a combustion engine for use outside the city and an electric motor for the city. Examples include the Honda Insight and the Toyota Prius.
The first Benz, now Mercedes, was made by Carl Benz in 1885. However, the history of passenger cars started in 1989, when the French Panhard et Levassor started the production of the first automobile. Two years later the still famous Peugeot car brand followed.
Over the years, numerous car brands and models have appeared on the market.
