Most cars don't mold like that unless they have been sitting with a window slightly open or have an issue like a leak that is letting rain get in, so first thing to do is get the car dried out if it is not dry already, then use vinegar and water in a spray bottle to kill the mold, you can also use a table spoon of bleach in a half gallon of water, but I would not use that on fabric, vinegar is fine tho.
Air ionizers will work as well, put one in the car and close the door for a few days, get one that is designed for use in a home and it should burn up the mold and the smells and everything.
For carpet you can also use baking soda (not with the vinegar tho) and brush it in to the carpet then vacuum it out, it will pull odors out.
