Best Cars Of 1910 – The Greatest Cars In The World This Year
The start of a new decade was big for the automobile industry as a whole. Sales of cars increase 4500% over the previous year and production reaches 187,000 up from 4,000 in 1900. While the car manufacturing industry ranked as the 21st among industrial sectors in the USA.
By 1910 there were around 500,000 motor vehicles cruising the streets of America. People no longer had to rely on horse-pulled carriages to get around, and there was a decrease in short trips by train as well. Automobile production was a booming industry—in fact, our modern use of the assembly line can be attributed to the early auto industry.
The 1910s also saw a huge increase in car production, meaning that showrooms and maintenance centers started popping up all over cities.
