The automobile dates back to the later part of the 19th century when Henry Ford made the first car for the common man. The middle class could go wherever they wanted to go, whenever they wanted to go at a reasonable cost (Automobiles). An era of speed and travel, the demand for transportation boomed. An affordable and faster way to get around, owning an automobile became a reality for most citizens living in the middle class. The “Big Three” automobile producers of the time were General Motors, Chrysler, and Ford. The automobile “allowed new production methods, charting new territory in mass, and creating and supplying burgeoning domestic and international markets” (Coopey). Motor vehicles in the 1920’s had a positive effect on the world in the 20th century as it does in the current day.

Joseph Theiss Mr. Hubert AP Language and Composition March 6, 2015 How The Automobile Benefited America During the 20th Century Isn't it hard to believe that there are currently one billion automobiles being used on a daily basis throughout the world? But, there always wasn't that many in the world as the automobile has only been around since the early 1900s. An automobile, also called a car, is a four wheeled vehicle that has its own motor and is used in daily travels around the world. Even though our world is filled with them now, automobiles were quite rare during the 1910s and 1920s. In the United States automobiles were just being developed at this time, but once the automobile became popular, people used them with every opportunity
A Nation No Longer Behind the Wheel Since the twentieth century, America has dominated the car industry business. Automobiles have made a major influence in the society and the economy of America ever since. Especially when Henry Ford, founder of Ford Motor Company, developed two of his inventions, Model T and Model A, flourished into a big success around the 1900’s. Nonetheless, the culture we live in today is influenced tremendously by the advanced technology we created, and it grants industries new opportunities that may evolve the automobile business as we know it.
The first "Automobile" was built in around 1672 as a toy for the chinese emperor by Ferdinand Verbiest. The automobile itself wasn't of the scale of being able to hold a passenger, and so could not be used as transportation. The first true automobile was created in 1855/1856 by Karl Benz from Germany.

One way the automobile improved transportation is because they could go faster and farther and were more reliable than previous forms of transportation. Before the automobile people got around by things like boats horses and trains. The automobile could go faster and farther than these and was much more reliable so from point A to point B had much less problems. Another way the automobile improved transportation is by making it easier. For people in rural areas it could take a long time to walk to their neighbor's house or even ride a horse there. With the automobile it was faster and they could have extra time to do other things. Also if people had an automobile they did not have to worry about walking to a train stop or missing a train when they could just drive where they wanted or needed to go. People that had to work far away had it a lot easier when the automobile was invented because they could just drive to work. After the automobile was invented a lot of people began to buy it and sales increased rapidly because people realized that it truly was an easier form of transportation. The automobile also improved transportation because it could transport a lot of people faster. During the Korean War, Japan produced automobiles that could carry large amounts of soldiers to where they needed to go. Large families could also go places together with automobiles that could carry a lot of
The way farmers farmed their land was changed by the transportation and the communications revolution. There was no longer a need to produce everything they consumed.
Participation of developing economies in globalization of the automotive industry was enhanced by innovations in telecommunication, technology development, and transportation. These elements made it possible for the industry to fragment its production processes and creation of smaller assembling plants that were located in different regions of the world. This segmentation of production processes created multiple global production networks and expanded the global market making many developing countries reap the benefits of globalizing the automotive industry (Maxcy 108).
