There is controversy over who actually invented the first vehicle. The first theory is that Nicholas-Joseph Cugnot was attributed to making the initial self-propelled mechanical automobile or vehicle around the year 1769. This was done by adapting a horse-drawn vehicle that already existed, making this claim be disputed by some, who questioned whether the three-wheeler made by Cugnot ever ran or was remotely stable. The first steam-powered car was built in around 1672 by a Jesuit mission member located in China, Mr. Ferdinand Verbiest. This vehicle was a small scale design, specifically for the Chinese Emperor, which could not be able to carry a passenger plus the driver but was the initial steam-powered car.
What is not in doubt, though, is the creation and demonstration of his road locomotive known as the puffing devil in the year 1801. This is believed, by a majority of people, to be the first steam-powered road automobile demonstration even though it could not maintain enough steam pressure after a lengthy period, making it of small practical use. The other vehicle which was invented early on was the three-wheeled human-pedaled carriage, made in 1780s in Russia by Ivan Kulibin. This vehicle had modern features such as brake, bearings, flywheel and a gearbox even though it was never developed further. Cars have become a great basic necessity for many, thanks to the inventor
