Some wheels, an engine and some passengers, a seemingly simple combination that has propelled economic and cultural growth since the mass production of automobiles began in the early 1900s. The automotive industry is one of the world's largest revenue generators when considering the needs for manufacturing, selling, repairing, innovation and fuel. It is the reason paved roads crisscross the world's landscape and it takes 20 minutes to get to the market instead of a day. Today, the variety of automobiles includes cars, trucks, crossovers, diesels, electric, hybrids, vans, motorcycles, ATVs, station wagons, etc. Newer, more advanced automobiles continue to enter the market as the needs and expectations of consumers evolve each year.
The term automotive was created from Greek autos (self), and Latin motivus (of motion) to represent any form of self-powered vehicle. The automotive industry traces it's roots to the early 1890s.
