Can you please tell me the difference between automobile and automotive
what vehicles are included in automobile and automotive
what other things these terms contain ?
can bikes be included in automobiles?
Automobile is a noun and automotive is its adjective
Automobile may be defined as something which moves on wheels on its own; but not on rail.
Motor bikes can be included in automobiles.
Vehicles can be sub-categorised into automobile that can further be sub divided into automotive
.Automotive can be anything moving on the wheels but automobile generally refers to car, I think the four wheeler.
"Automobile" literally means something (inanimate or non-living object) that can move itself.
"Automotive" refers to anything related to an "Automobile". For example, a brake disc is an automotive part as it is related to or is a part of an automobile (like a car, bus, truck, etc).
As shaheen pointed out the terms are applied almost exclusively to road vehicles.
