New keyword in JavaScript | Basics

  • by

The new keyword is used in JavaScript to create an object from a constructor function. The new keyword has to be placed before the constructor function call and will do the following things:

new constructor[([arguments])]
  1. Creates a new object
  2. Sets the prototype of this object to the constructor function’s prototype property
  3. Binds the this keyword to the newly created object and executes the constructor function
  4. Returns the newly created object

Simple example code can create an instance of a user-defined object type or of one of the built-in object types that have a constructor function.

<!DOCTYPE html>

    function Car(make, model, year) {
      this.make = make;
      this.model = model;
      this.year = year;

    const car1 = new Car('Eagle', 'Talon TSi', 1993);
