types of cars or type of cars?

Types of cars

 

WHICH is correct? “Types of car”, “types of cars” or “type of cars”?

All are correct. “Type”, like “kind and “sort can be singular or plural and followed by “of + plural or singular noun”.

Here are some examples from the Internet:

“For next year, duty rates for all types of car will increase by a maximum of £5 …”

“The electronic gadgets inside the cars are movable to different types of vehicles so police can target the types of cars being stolen in any given area.”

“So when a company called Motorshop UK called, saying they already had potential buyers lined up for the type of cars Clint and Neville were selling, it seemed ideal.”

We can also ask someone: “What type of car are you thinking of buying?”
