1 Answer 1

We have many car in our showroom.

The above sentence is wrong. You could say something like this,

We have many cars in our showroom.

Your second sentence is technically correct.

Using many or lots of requires a plural noun, therefore, "car" would never be correct, only "cars". And lots of is usually considered the more informal of the two – suitable for everyday conversation, but less likely to be found in a news article or technical paper.

It might be worth mentioning that using many or lots of requires a plural noun, therefore, car would never be correct, only cars. I think it's also worth mentioning that lots of is usually considered the more informal of the two – suitable for everyday conversation, but less likely to be found in a news article or technical paper. –  J.R.

Note that "lots of" can also take a mass noun, as in "There is lots of wisdom on Stack Exchange." –  David Richerby Feb 22 at 14:25
