General info

1.Has fully independent suspension
McLaren 650S
McLaren P1
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
2.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
McLaren 650S
McLaren P1
A petrol (gasoline) engine offers several advantages over diesel. For example the engines tend to be lighter and cheaper than their diesel counterparts. Petrol engines also tend to have higher horsepower, and the fuel is more readily available.
3.Has dual-clutch transmission
McLaren 650S
McLaren P1
A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is an automated manual transmission that allows the driver to control gear-shifts themselves or to let the computer decide. Upshifts are extremely fast, resulting in smooth acceleration, and due to the uninterrupted power flow it also has the benefit of increasing fuel efficiency.
4.Has rear-wheel drive
McLaren 650S
McLaren P1
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.
5.CO2 emissions

275g/km

194g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
6.Is a hybrid car
McLaren 650S
McLaren P1
Hybrid cars run on a mixture of petrol (gasoline) and electric power. They offer several benefits over traditional petrol-powered cars. For example they produce less CO2 emissions, and due to their fuel efficiency they are often cheaper to run.

Dimensions

1.height

1.2m

1.19m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
2.length

4.51m

4.59m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
3.weight

1.33t

1.49t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.width

2.09m

1.95m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.wheelbase

2.67m

2.67m

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
6.Has vertically-opening doors
McLaren 650S
McLaren P1
Vertically-opening doors are useful for when parking in tight spaces, and are aesthetically pleasing.

Speed

1.top speed

333km/h

350km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
2.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

3s

2.8s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
3.acceleration time (0-200 km/h)

8.4s

6.8s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-200 kilometres per hour.

Engine

1.maximum torque

678Nm

978Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
2.horsepower

641hp

890hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
3.number of cylinders

8

8

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.
4.Has a turbocharged engine
McLaren 650S
McLaren P1
A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.

Features

1.Has in-car system
McLaren 650S
McLaren P1
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
2.Has regenerative braking
McLaren 650S
McLaren P1
Hybrids and electric cars use regenerative braking, which captures the kinetic energy produced by braking and converts it into electricity. This then charges the battery, effectively increasing the car’s fuel efficiency.
