Properties from MotorizedRoadVehicle
ACRISSCode Text The ACRISS Car Classification Code is a code used by many car rental companies, for classifying vehicles. ACRISS stands for Association of Car Rental Industry Systems and Standards.
VIN Text The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is a unique serial number used by the automotive industry to identify individual motor vehicles.
acceleration QuantitativeValue The time needed to accelerate the vehicle from a given start velocity to a given target velocity.
Typical unit code(s): SEC for seconds
Note: There are unfortunately no standard unit codes for seconds/0..100 km/h or seconds/0..60 mph. Simply use "SEC" for seconds and indicate the velocities in the name of the QuantitativeValue, or use valueReference with a QuantitativeValue of 0..60 mph or 0..100 km/h to specify the reference speeds.
airbags Number  or
Text 
The number or type of airbags in the vehicle.
axles Number  or
QuantitativeValue 
The number of axles.
Typical unit code(s): C62
cargoVolume QuantitativeValue The available volume for cargo or luggage. For automobiles, this is usually the trunk space.
Typical unit code(s): LTR for liters, FTQ for cubic foot/feet
Note: You can use minValue and maxValue to indicate ranges.
doors Number  or
QuantitativeValue 
The number of doors.
Typical unit code(s): C62
driveWheelConfiguration Text  or
DriveWheelConfigurationValue 
The drive wheel configuration, i.e. which roadwheels will receive torque from the vehicle's engine via the drivetrain.
emissionsCO2 Number The CO2 emissions in g/km.
engineDisplacement QuantitativeValue The volume swept by all of the pistons inside the cylinders of an internal combustion engine in a single movement. If there are multiple engines, simply attach this property multiple times.
Typical unit code(s): CMQ for cubic centimeter, LTR for liters, INQ for cubic inches
Note 1: You can link to information about how the given value has been determined using the valueReference property.
Note 2: You can use minValue and maxValue to indicate ranges.
engineName Text A short text indicating the engine(s) of the vehicle.
enginePower QuantitativeValue The power of the vehicle's engine. If there are multiple engines, simply attach this property multiple times.
Typical unit code(s): KWT for kilowatt
Note 1: There are many different ways of measuring an engine's power. For an overview, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horsepower#Engine_power_test_codes.
Note 2: You can link to information about how the given value has been determined using the valueReference property.
Note 3: You can use minValue and maxValue to indicate ranges.
engineType Text  or
EngineTypeValue 
The type of engine or engines powering the vehicle. If there are multiple engines, simply attach this property multiple times.
fuelCapacity QuantitativeValue The capacity of the fuel tank or in the case electric cars, the battery. If there are multiple components for staorage, this should indicate the total of all storage of the same type.
Typical unit code(s): LTR for liters, GLL of US gallons, GLI for UK / imperial gallons, AMH for ampere-hours (for electrical vehicles)
fuelConsumption QuantitativeValue The amount of fuel consumed for traveling a particular distance or temporal duration with the given vehicle (e.g. liters per 100 km).
Typical unit code(s): LTR for liters, GLL of US Gallons, GLI for UK / Imperial Gallons
Note 1: There are unfortunately no standard unit codes for "liters per 100 km". Simply use "LTR" for liters, "GLL" of US Gallons, or "GLI" for UK / Imperial Gallons, and indicate the distance in the rdfs:label of the QuantitativeValue or use valueReference to model the reference distance (e.g. 100 km).
Note 2: There are two ways of indicating the fuel consumption, fuelConsumption (e.g. 8 liters per 100 km) and fuelEfficiency (e.g. 30 miles per gallon). They are reciprocal.
Note 3: Often, the absolute value is useful only when related to driving speed ("at 80 km/h") or usage pattern ("city traffic"). You can use valueReference to link the value for the fuel consumption to another value.
fuelEfficiency QuantitativeValue The distance traveled per unit of fuel used; most commonly miles per gallon (mpg) or kilometers per liter (km/L).
Typical unit code(s): KMT for kilometers, SMI for statute miles
Note 1: There are unfortunately no standard unit codes for miles per gallon or kilometers per liter.
Simply use "SMI" for statute miles (common miles in the US and UK) or "KMT" for kilometers, and indicate the fuel amount of reference in the name of the QuantitativeValue, or use valueReference to point to the reference fuel quantity, e.g. one liter, one US Gallon, or one British Gallon.
Note 2: In the absence of a a reference fuel quantity one may assume that the quantity of reference is one gallon for distances given in miles and one liter for distances given in kilometers. However, note that the original unit may be obscured by unit conversion services, so this heuristic is far from perfect. Note 3: There are two ways of indicating the fuel consumption, fuelConsumption (e.g. 8 liters per 100 km) and fuelEfficiency (e.g. 30 miles per gallon). They are reciprocal.
Note 4: Often, the absolute value is useful only when related to driving speed ("at 80 km/h") or usage pattern ("city traffic"). You can use valueReference to link the value for the fuel economy to another value.
mileageFromOdometer QuantitativeValue The total distance travelled by the particular vehicle since its initial production, as read from its odometer.
Typical unit code(s): KMT for kilometers, SMI for statute miles
roofLoad QuantitativeValue The permited total weight of cargo and installations (e.g. a roof rack) on top of the vehicle.
