What does horsepower mean?

Horsepower is a unit of power that measures the rate at which work is done. In the context of vehicles, horsepower refers to the engine's ability to produce power, which determines the car's performance and speed. It is a common measurement used to compare and evaluate the power output of different vehicles.

How to Convert Horsepower to Kilowatt

To convert horsepower (hp) to kilowatts (kW), you can use the following conversion factor:

1 horsepower (hp) = 0.7355 kilowatts (kW)

To convert from horsepower to kilowatts, simply multiply the horsepower value by 0.7355. For example, if you have a car engine with a power output of 200 horsepower, the equivalent power in kilowatts would be:

200 horsepower * 0.7355 = 147.1 kilowatts

So, 200 horsepower is approximately equal to 147.1 kilowatts.
