Peugeot started as a coffee mil company in 1810, and car manufacturer in 1882 (

Tatra reportedly started in 1850, and its car production in 1897 named the President (

While Mercedes was designed by a Czech-Hungarian German called Emil Jelinek in 1901 under the name Daimler ( and (

Skoda goes back to 1895, with "automobiles" manufacturing starting around "1905"

Whereas Ford did not start as a company until 1903.

"Steam-powered car is made by De Dion, Bouton & Trépardoux of France in 1884 and is most commonly known as the La Marquise. It is the first car invented but when we are talking about manufacturing it is the Fords company leaded by the founder Henry Ford."

The Ford Motor Company was not the oldest manufacturer.. The only thing that Henry Ford brought to the table was the invention of Mass Production via the assembly line, which simply made cars more affordable.

The oldest American car company is actually Buick which was founded in 1899 as a car manufacturer. Ford Motor Company was not started until June 1903, followed by Cadillac in August 1903. Henry Ford initially started Detroit Automobile Company in August 1899, but later dissolved it in January 1901. In Oct 1901, he started Henry Ford Motor Company, but left in 1902, causing the company to be restructured into Cadillac in August 1903.

Prior to its dissolution of the brand name in 2004, Oldsmobile was the oldest American car manufacturer starting business to make cars in 1897.

Thus the oldest, still producing, car manufacturer in the world is Mercedes Benz.

Mercedes Benz was founded in 1881 and patented their first car in 1885. But it was not until 1901 that they actually marketed a vehicle and it was not until 1926 that the Mercedes Benz brand name was established.

MERCEDES BENZ, (Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler) made the FIRST AUTOMOBILE ON RECORD in patented in 1885. Peugeot, (from Peugeot's own documented history), used the Daimler motor in 1891 to make their first 'petro' automobile, while the first Peugeot stream carraige was in 1889.
Buick is actually the oldest car manufacturer in the United States.

Mercedes-BenzEDITED: Mercedes-Benz is not the oldest company.The worlds most oldest car manufacturer is Holden,Australian. It was founded in the year 1856.Not many people know this because Australia is not a noticed country.A:Another twist in the oldest car manufacturer is that, Benz design was alight three wheeled carrage with belt drive around the engine , the car first ran on the streets of Mannheim in June 1886. Benz did not build a four wheeled car until 1891. It was only after seeing the success of Peugeot and Panhard & Levassor that Daimler and his assistant, Wilhelm Maybach, began to think in terms of complete cars, rather than just engines. Peugeot then could be one of the oldest car manufacturer's, They had a factory established in 1896 "Society des Automobiles".Peugeot also had a steam powered tricycle at the Paris World exhibition in 1889.
