The JavaScript new operator is used to create a new object.

You follow new with the object class to create a new object of that type:

const date = new Date()

If the object constructor accepts parameters, we pass them:

const date = new Date('2019-04-22')

Given an Object constructor like this:

function Car(brand, model) {
  this.brand = brand
  this.model = model
}

We initialize a new “Car” object using:

const myCar = new Car('Ford', 'Fiesta')
myCar.brand //'Ford'
myCar.model //'Fiesta'
