The colloquial term for “motor vehicle” is a short form of the early 20th century. It goes back to the end of the 19th century when the noun “automobile” was borrowed from the French noun “automobile”. It means “self (auto)movers (mobile)” and originally belongs to the Greek “autós” = “self” and the Latin “mobilis” = “mobile”.
