Reading Comprehension
Car’s History
If one defines a car as a ’self-propelled road vehicle capable to human transport’, the first car
was invented in France as early as 1769. This vehicle had only three wheels and was powered
by a steam engine. It was used as military tractor by the French Army to haul artillery. The
steam engine and boiler were separated from the rest of the vehicle and placed in the front.
The vehicle had to stop every ten to fifteen minutes to build up steam power. The maximum
speed was 4km/h and the steam engines added a lot of weight to vehicle and thus, were not
well suited for road vehicles. However, steam engines were used very successfully in
In 1870 Siegfried Marcus built the first diesel powered combustion engine, which he placed
on a pushcart, building four progressively more sophisticated combustion engine-cars over a
10-to-15 years span that influenced later cars. Marcus created the two-cycle combustion
engine. The car’s second incarnation introduced a four-cycle, gasoline-powered engine,
ingenious carburetor design and magneto ignition.
However, actually the 1830s, vehicles powered by electric motors were introduced. It took
almost half a century longer, until 1870, before internal combustion engines running on petrol
were invented. In the 1900, electric cars outsold all other types of cars. Petrol driven vehicles
only played a minor role in market. Electric vehicles had many advantages over their
competitors in the early 1900s. They were easier to start and to operate and they did not have
the vibration, smell, and noise or petrol and diesel cars. Most early electric vehicles were
expensive, massive carriages with fancy interiors specifically for the upper class. However, in
the 1920s, sales of electric vehicles decreased and the internal combustion engine came to
dominate the consumer market
