The first pickup truck to ever employ a motor was developed in 1896 by Gottlieb Daimler. He was from Germany plus one of the original automotive innovators, who was attributed with building the first motorcycle and the first taxi. Going forward, his pickup had only two gear speeds, and for reverse, one, while 4hp was all the power the engine could produce. To begin with, the objective of a truck was to haul things for industrial reasons, but new trucks needed to be produced, every time there was a new need.
