Bonjour Diane,

If you wanted to emphasise the number of cars he has, you could indeed say:
"Il n'a pas une voiture. Il en a deux.",
and even more colloquially, you could say:
"Il n'a pas une voiture, mais deux !"

Thank you for pointing out that case, we added this distinction to the existing lesson:

Merci et à bientôt !
