The first car was bought by an Indian even before independence was in Mumbai.

The car was bought in the year 1898.

Back then, only rich people could afford a car.

This was because cars used to be imported from other countries.

But which Indian bought the first car in India?

He was Tata Group founder Jamsetji Tata.

He is regarded as the Father of Indian Industry.

However, before him, a foreigner bought a car in India.

His name was Mr. Foster who bought the first car in Kolkata.
