There is already good news here. The standard lenses (kit lenses), that are often included with new cameras in bundles, are in the medium wide-angle to normal focal length range and are therefore very suitable as lenses for car photography.
The kit lenses are in the focal length ranges from 16-50mm or from 18-55mm. Generally, this category includes lenses, roughly all lenses from 15mm focal length to about 70mm. If your lens covers this focal length range, then you won’t do anything wrong. You will be able to take most photos with lenses in this focal length range – both exterior images of the car and interior images.
The kit lenses of the manufacturers are in a very good focal length range for auto photography, but the lenses are among the more affordable ones. In the comparable focal length range you will find some higher quality lenses with an even better image quality.
For starters, however, the kit lenses still deliver very good quality.
