why doesn't kocsi need article but car does?

This sentence can also be translated as: Ez az alma és az a kocsi. "A" comes before kocsi because we are talking about a specific car, and kocsi starts with a "k". Autó starts with a vowel, therefore we need az. This car: ez az autó, ez a kocsi. That car: Az az autó, az a kocsi.
