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.
|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.
