Which car company was the first to offer air conditioning in its cars?
Today, few people would consider buying a car that’s not equipped with air conditioning. It’s seen as a necessity, not a luxury. That wasn’t always the case, though. The 1940 Packard was the first car to offer factory-installed air-conditioning. Cadillac and Chrysler followed suit in 1941 with similar A/C systems. But these setups were primitive and expensive, and they didn’t really catch on. Luxury car buyers quickly came to see A/C as a highly desirable feature, and by 1969, more than half of all new cars sold were equipped with A/C.
