Steam-powered car was finished as early as 1769 by French inventor Nicolas Cugnot. But when it comes to vehicles powered by the internal combustion engine, then Carl Benz is given credit for actually building one. Benz championed the new internal-combustion engines, and he worked single-minded to create a car driven by one. He built a little three-wheeled car in 1885 and sold his first one two years later. He went into production with a four-wheeled model in 1890, and the Mercedes-Benz company is still with us.

But Benz wasn't first. The French inventor de Rochas built an auto, and an engine to drive it, in 1862.

The breakthrough in personal transportation began with the development of a new type of machine and fuels different from the heavy weight and low efficiency of coal. The piston was retained, but instead of using the expansive power of steam the rapid combustion of petroleum fractions contained within the piston became the operative force.

By the mid-1800s tienne Lenoir, a Belgian mechanic, had developed a crude two-stroke cycle internal-combustion engine that was fueled by coal gas. Rapid advances took place. The four-cycle engine was proposed by the French engineer Alphonse Beau de Rochas,and a French patent was issued for it in 1862. But only in Germany in 1878 was a successful internal-combustion engine constructed by Nikolaus Otto. At the same time a two-cycle engine was displayed at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia by the American engineer George B. Brayton, who had designed it in 1872.

As is frequently the case in modern technology a number of inventors devised refi ...more

The first internal combustion engine was manufactured by a Belgian engineer Jean Etienne Lenoir (also called Jean J Lenoir)in 1858. However before this also there were designs patented in 1807 but they did not achieve success. It was Karl Benz who successfully adopted the petrol engine in the first automobile in 1885 and pioneered the automotive sector.
