If an elevator can "lift" Mjolnir, why can't a car?

The scene you’re referring to was someone attempting to move it with a tow cable attached to Mjolnir. The reason why it didn’t move is due to it’s mystical enchantment. Mjolnir is left where it’s placed and can’t be lifted/moved by another unless they’re worthy.Car Elevators Company
Normally, it’s obviously wherever Thor decides to place it but, in the desert in New Mexico, it was Odin who’d “placed” it there. Under normal circumstances though, were Thor to put it down in an elevator then Mjolnir would move alongside the elevator.
Using the car example, were Thor to place Mjolnir in the passenger seat, back seat or the trunk of a car then it would still continue to drive as normal. Just if anyone attempted to move or lift Mjolnir it wouldn’t move. It’s why when he places it down on the Helicarrier it doesn’t just stop moving and fall out of the sky.
Just for some fun, here’s a science based theory taken from the pages of The Indestructible Hulk discussing the scientific reasoning behind why Mjolnir can’t be lifted, rather than the usual “mystical enchantment” one;
