The very first car to be mass produced in America was the 1901, Curved Dash Oldsmobile, built by Ransome Eli Olds, who were in existence from 1864 to 1950. They invented the basic idea of the assembly line and they started the Detroit area automobile industry. Olds began building gasoline powered vehicles in Lansing, Michigan in 1899. With their low production cost the company grew in popularity and moved to Detroit to start the Olds Motor Works. Olds was America's leading vehicle manufacturer from 1901 to 1904.

Probably the most well known American car manufacturer was Henry Ford. Around 1913-1914, Ford created an improved assembly line and used the very first conveyor belt assembly line in his car factory in Ford's Highland Park, Michigan plant. The assembly line dramatically reduced the production costs for each vehicle by reducing their time to assemble them.

Due to this reduction in production time the very famous Model T could be assembled in 93 minutes. After its introduction in 1908, over 15 million Model T's had been produced by 1927. Ford's famous Model T was assembled in ninety-three minutes.
