    There are no exact dates of when steam engines were no longer used in cars. However, the first steam powered car, which is also concidered the first ‘automobile’ was designed and built by French engineer Nicolas Cugnot in 1769. Over a hundred years later, steam vehicles were still being used as a professor at Wisconsin State University built a steam car that won a 200 mile race. The decline of the steam powered car seems to come with the advent of the combustible engine and the development of the assembly line manufacturing process that made it a more economically viable mode of transportation.
