Car Production by Country

Cars, or automobiles, were first made in 1892 by Carl Benze and have become a necessity in modern life in most countries. They make transportation over long distances easier and more accessible. Cars have become so important in certain societies to the point where such transportation is required for work, school, or even to get groceries. Car production has become a major producer of revenue and a player in the financial market, because of the need for steel and other raw materials to manufacture them.

Car production is one of the largest economic sectors internationally; however, some countries produce more cars than others. The countries that produce more cars often have a supply of, or access to, steel as well as a strong working population to work in the factories. On the other side, some countries choose to import cars instead because it is cheaper than building the infrastructure to manufacture them.
