Metric horsepower is exactly defined as 0.73549875 kW (kilowatts), that is roughly 98.6% of US mechanical horsepower. Metric horse power is widely used in auto industry to indicate power of car engines in Europe and Asia. French, Japanese, Korean, German, Swedish, Italian and other automobile companies use this unit. Metric horse power was first used in the 19th century in Europe, primary in Germany and them was adopted in Asia. British car manufacturers and dealers can intermix metric horsepower and US mechanical horsepower depending on particular marketed product. The unit can have different abbreviations -for example "CV", "PS", "pk" or "ch" but all translated to "horse power" or "hp" in English language.
