What Wikipedia Can't Tell You About Cars (infographic)

Posted by Poquet Auto on Aug 21, 2014 9:00:02 AM

Of course, Wikipedia does have a wealth of information on cars and automobiles. In fact, the page on automobiles spans a total of 6,500 words and covers everything from history and etymology to propulsion and future car technologies!

However, what you won't find on Wikipedia is a list of car myths, do’s and don’ts and interesting fun facts. That’s where a Fun Facts infographic created by TechieSense comes in.

Here are a few car facts mentioned in the infographic:

»  People are 3x as likely to buy used than new.
»  Stolen cars have approximately a 60-65 percent recovery rate.
»  The average American spends about 38 hours a year stuck in traffic.
»  The number of motor vehicles per 1,000 people in China is 69.
»  If driving non-stop at 60KM per hour, it would take 157 days to drive to the moon.

Without further ado, here’s the full infographic:
