Sure she is not a moose! Just kidding, as moose have been known to do that.
There are several reasons I can think of.
She might be very territorial of her space, chasing that car, like she would a stray dog, or she is bored, being a lone young horse and is trying to engage in play
Young horses will often nip each other, to encourage playing.
I agree on a trainer, plus any way to get her a companion around her own age?
Sorry, just read the thread a bit more, and see that you are using the car to feed her. I agree on not doing that, and instead work on respect, walking out there with along lunge whip. Make her stay back, until you put that food down and welcome her to approach. Any aggressive body language like pinned ears, drive her off again. She does not get to eat until she is respectful
I also agree that haltering her, bringing her in to eat, tying her up, is very useful at this point, provided you are experienced enough to handle her and demand respect, while staying safe
