In the real world, simple interest is rarely used. When you deposit money into an interest-bearing account, or take out a line of credit, the interest that accumulates is added to the principal, and the next interest calculation is done on both the principal and the interest.
There are two basic parts to the cost of a car loan the principal and the interest. The principal is the negotiated cost of the vehicle itself. The interest refers to the total amount of the costs accrued over the life of the loan based on the principal amount and the stated interest rate.
