We use them every day, but how much do we really know about them? Driving our cars became a sort of quantum leap in the progression of civilization. To understand some of that impact, we’ve put together some interesting car-related facts:
- Over 1 billion vehicles currently get driven around the world.
- Around the globe, we build over 165,000 cars each day.
- The “new car smell” comes from at least 50 different noxious chemicals.
- The average vehicle contains about 30,000 different parts.
- About 92% of cars recently sold in Brazil run on ethanol made from sugarcane.
- Of all the cars that Rolls Royce has produced, 75% of them still drive today.
- In America, the average person wastes about 38 hours each year in traffic.
- In Russia, you can get arrested for driving a dirty car.
- More cars exist in the city of Los Angelos than human beings.
- The farthest length a vehicle ever traveled reached 2,850,000 miles.
- Henry Ford once created a vehicle made from soy beans.
