The making of cars is a process with many
steps. For example, one of the largest car
manufacturers in the world, Toyota, follows these
steps. At the beginning of the development stage,
the concept of a type of car is put on
paper. Then, the car is designed in detailed
in specific omputer programs , and this
detailed design is converted into a 3D real
Technical issues in the design are resolved,
and a prototype (first copy that then goes
through testing) of the car is made. The prototype
is evaluated for safety, efficiency, etc.
engineering stage , the technology and
equipment needed for producing the car is
evaluated, developed, and tested. This stage is
mainly computation-oriented, and involves
computer modeling of the production process
and simulating the assembly operations and the
In the third and last stage, the stage of
production, first, the plates of the car
(mostly large exterior structural parts) are
stamped out by machines. Then, components
are welded (stuck on by liquid metal and
let cool) onto the plates. The car is painted
and assembled, by putting in an engine, tires,
electrical wiring, and any other interior parts.
The finished car is inspected and shipped
to other places for sale.

How Cars Are Made? A Visit to
Honda's Cars Manufacturing Facility:
The very first cars were made by hand, by just
a few workers. Now they're made in big factories
by lots of workers on 'assembly lines.'
How Are Cars Made? | Wonderopolis.
Cars are made in factories where machines put
together all of the many, many parts that make up
Let's start by thinking of the bare minimum of
what you might need for a car.
To make a car, you would need an engine
of some sort, which will provide the power. You
will also need a way to convert this power into
something useful, so we'll need wheels
and a way to get the engine to turn them. We would
then need a frame to place this equipment
on, so that it's all attached in one place. The
first cars were as simple as this, and they've
come a long way since then.
Modern cars are the result of over a hundred
years of development, and are probably best
thought of as a group of other things. A single
car has around 30 000 parts, so they really
are super complicated!! Modern cars are made in
extremely large numbers, with specialized
equipment. Generally all the parts are made
elsewhere and delivered to the factory, which then
assembles them together.
