Car industry dates back to end of XIV century, when first usable petrol engine car was built. It has gone a long way since then, way which have marked the modern history. Cars are complex in many ways - not only by construction, but also environmentally, culturally and even sociologically.


Numerous scientific innovations have found its practical use in car industry. Even more were  investigated in order to solve the problems which arouse in auto industry, or to improve the cars we use. Nowadays, hybrid cars are common, fully electrical usable cars are knocking at the door. Fusion of technologies is obvious - computers are used not only to improve driving performance and safety, but also for fun and even in-car business.


Cars reflect the people's way of life, their habits , where they live and what they do. Even more, cars reflect the nation's culture. European, Asian and US cars are a living proof of that.


It's extremely hard to imagine what would the world look like without cars.

One can easily say that automotive industry is the power force of the modern world.
