|Engine and Transmission|
Engine type in car refers to the type of engine that powers the vehicle. There are many different types of car engines, but the most common are petrol (gasoline) and diesel engines
1.5L TSI EVO with ACT
The displacement of an engine is the total volume of all of the cylinders in the engine. Measured in cubic centimetres (cc)
|No Of Cylinder|
ICE engines have one or more cylinders. More cylinders typically mean more smoothness and more power, but it also means more moving parts and less fuel efficiency.
Fast charging typically refers to direct current (DC) charging from an EV charge station, and is generally quicker than AC charging. Not all fast chargers are equal, though, and this depends on their rated output.
19 h - AC - 2.8 kW (0-100%)
Permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM)
|Max Power (bhp@rpm)|
Power dictates the performance of an engine. It's measured in horsepower (bhp) or metric horsepower (PS). More is better.
|Max Torque (nm@rpm)|
The load-carrying ability of an engine, measured in Newton-metres (Nm) or pound-foot (lb-ft). More is better.
|Valves Per Cylinder|
Valves let air and fuel into the cylinders of a combustion engine. More valves typically make more power and are more efficient.
|Fuel Supply System|
Responsible for delivering fuel from the fuel tank into your internal combustion engine (ICE). More sophisticated systems give you better mileage.
A device that forces more air into an internal combustion engine. More air can burn more fuel and make more power. Turbochargers utilise exhaust gas energy to make more power.
A battery warranty is a guarantee offered by the battery manufacturer or seller that the battery will perform as expected for a certain period of time or number of cycles. Battery warranties typically cover defects in materials and workmanship
8 Years or 160000 km
Small lead-acid batteries are typically used by internal combustion engines for start-up and to power the vehicle's electronics, while lithium-ion battery packs are typically used in electric vehicles.
|Charging Time ( A.C)|
The time taken to charge batteries from mains power or alternating current (AC) source. Mains power is typically slower than DC charging.
6 H 10 Min (7.2 kW AC)
|Charging Time (D.C)|
The time taken for a DC Fast Charger to charge your car. DC or Direct Current chargers recharge electric vehicles faster than AC chargers
