Objects: How to create an object

Here’s how we define an object:

const car = {}

This is the object literal syntax, which is one of the nicest things in JavaScript.

You can also use the new Object syntax:

const car = new Object()

or also Object.create():

const car = Object.create({})

Those are all equivalent. The end result will be the same thing.
