A Categorized List of Types of Vehicles

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

Since the beginning of history mankind has had to develop many types of vehicles in order to travel about the world. There has been a surprisingly large variety of methods of transportation over land, sea, and air, and even space in recent times.

The following list may pique your interest. You may explore an unusual type of automobile or air vehicle. You might find the list useful for a classroom activity.

The list is not complete. You will probably think of some other type of boat or train that isn’t here. Also, some of the vehicles fit into more than one category. Never the less, the list is rather inspiring. Who knows what future types of vehicles might be added to such a list that have yet to be invented or even conceived.
