An individual car (e.g. a used car on ebay is a schema:IndividualProduct. In an offer of new cars on a dealer page, these cars are typically a schema:SomeProducts. On the manufacturers' pages, a car model description is typically a schema:ProductModel.

If you do not know or cannot say which of these three types a product is, you can use schema:Product.
