Internal Combustion Engines (ICE)

Internal combustion engines run on either gasoline or diesel fuel and are further categorized as follows:

  • Gasoline engines - also known as petrol engines, are widely used due to their smooth operation and higher power output. They are suitable for most passenger vehicles and offer a good balance between performance and fuel efficiency.
  • Diesel engines - are known for their fuel efficiency and high torque output. They are commonly used in trucks and commercial vehicles. While they offer better fuel economy, they tend to produce more emissions compared to gasoline engines.
  • Electric car engines - also referred to as electric motors, have gained popularity as eco-friendly alternatives to traditional combustion engines. They use electricity stored in batteries to power the motor, resulting in zero tailpipe emissions.
  • Hybrid car engines - combine both internal combustion engines and electric motors. They can run on gasoline or electric power, providing improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions, especially in stop-and-go city driving.
