]An automobile (or motor car) is a wheeled passenger vehicle that carries its own motor. Most definitions of the term specify that automobiles are designed to run primarily on roads, to have seating for one to seven people, typically have four wheels and are constructed principally for the transport of people rather than goods. However, the term is far from precise.

The automobile is one of the technologies—along with such others as distributed electricity, the electric motor, the electric light bulb, and the telephone—that played a pivotal role in effecting wholesale change in twentieth century society.
