Vague, ambiguous error trying to create simple table

I'm coming from an MS Access background. I'm trying to do pretty basic stuff with MySQL so that I can create a PHP frontend. However, I can't seem to even create a table using MySQL Workbench. When I try to create a table using the GUI, it creates its own SQL, but then provides a very confusing error that I cannot decipher. Here's the SQL and the result. I'm having a hard time believing that there would be an error in the SQL created by MySQL Workbench. Shouldn't I just be able to click and apply the self-generated SQL?

-SQL created by MySQL Workbench-----------------
CREATE TABLE `dbcars`.`tblvehicles` (
`idcar` INT GENERATED ALWAYS AS () VIRTUAL,
`make` VARCHAR(45) NULL,
`model` VARCHAR(45) NULL,
`year` INT NULL,
`purchaseprice` DECIMAL(14,5) NULL,
`color` VARCHAR(20) NULL,
`oiltype` VARCHAR(10) NULL,
`VIN` VARCHAR(20) NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (`idcar`),
UNIQUE INDEX `idcar_UNIQUE` (`idcar` ASC) VISIBLE);

-Result------------------------------------

Operation failed: There was an error while applying the SQL script to the database.
Executing:
CREATE TABLE `dbcars`.`tblvehicles` (
`idcar` INT GENERATED ALWAYS AS () VIRTUAL,
`make` VARCHAR(45) NULL,
`model` VARCHAR(45) NULL,
`year` INT NULL,
`purchaseprice` DECIMAL(14,5) NULL,
`color` VARCHAR(20) NULL,
`oiltype` VARCHAR(10) NULL,
`VIN` VARCHAR(20) NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (`idcar`),
UNIQUE INDEX `idcar_UNIQUE` (`idcar` ASC) VISIBLE);

ERROR 1064: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ') VIRTUAL,
`make` VARCHAR(45) NULL,
`model` VARCHAR(45) NULL,
`year` INT N' at line 2
SQL Statement:
CREATE TABLE `dbcars`.`tblvehicles` (
`idcar` INT GENERATED ALWAYS AS () VIRTUAL,
`make` VARCHAR(45) NULL,
`model` VARCHAR(45) NULL,
`year` INT NULL,
`purchaseprice` DECIMAL(14,5) NULL,
`color` VARCHAR(20) NULL,
`oiltype` VARCHAR(10) NULL,
`VIN` VARCHAR(20) NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (`idcar`),
UNIQUE INDEX `idcar_UNIQUE` (`idcar` ASC) VISIBLE)
