 Who Invented The Car
Later, in 1769, Nicolas Joseph Cugnot, a French mechanic, invented the military tractor, which he powered with a steam engine.
With his invention of the steam engine, Cugnot did not only invent the first automobile, but he also commenced the first stirrings of the steam engine trains that were soon created after his discovery.
Alternatively, if we consider the different car designs that have evolved over the years, then it is safe to conclude that many inventors played a part in the invention of different cars throughout history.

Their challenge was to convert the lateral motion of a steam engine into the rotational energy required for locomotion.
For some reason Cugnot overlooked one of most crucial aspects of safety, and with a total lack of any braking system, it should be no surprise that his Steamer became the first motor vehicle to suffer an accident.
All the Cugnot steamers were thought to be lost during the French revolution until the first prototype was discovered and preserved in the 1800.
