In brief: Seldom happens
Children less than two years old are typically resistant to motion sickness.

In brief: Hard to tell
Babies can't complain of feeling nauseous, so its hard to know.
But we do know that being jiggled and bounced and rocked seems to actually be calming to babies- and they tend to fall asleep in the car so it doesn't seem as though they get the same carsick feeling as we do. For the 9 months in your womb baby was being jostled all around, twisting and turning- so that feeling is comforting.

Since babies don't complain of nausea, the only way a parent can know a baby is carsick is if the baby begins each car trip perfectly fine, and ends up looking queasy, acting a bit fussy, and maybe vomiting.
Babies enjoy car rides and seem fine with the motion and bumping. In my years as a pediatrician, the youngest child i recall getting carsick was about 3 years old.
