Default why 12V?

So many things run on 12V DC. Firstly, why has that become the standard?
Is it all because of the nominal voltage of a car battery?
Secondly, wouldn't 24 or 48V be more convenient for many things?

I heard a few years back something about new cars being 48V in the near
future. Did it ever happen?
