The chariot that evolved from the ancient vehicle of this name (see Chariot) took on two main forms:
A chariotee was a light, covered, four-wheeled pleasure carriage with two seats.
A post chariot was a carriage for traveling post. The term was used specifically for a kind of light four-wheeled carriage with a driver's seat in front.
A vehicle such as a cart or wagon for transporting goods was also sometimes called a chariot.
