Remote Keyless System
A KEYLESS ENTRY SYSTEM is an electronic lock that controls access to a building or vehicle without using a traditional mechanical key . The term keyless entry system originally meant a lock controlled by a keypad located at or near the driver's door, which required entering a predetermined (or self-programmed) numeric code. Such systems now have a hidden touch-activated keypad and are still available on certain Ford and Lincoln models. The term REMOTE KEYLESS SYSTEM (RKS), also called KEYLESS ENTRY or REMOTE CENTRAL LOCKING, refers to a lock that uses an electronic remote control as a key which is activated by a handheld device or automatically by proximity. Widely used in automobiles, an RKS performs the functions of a standard car key without physical contact. When within a few yards of the car, pressing a button on the remote can lock or unlock the doors, and may perform other functions

2WD
TWO-WHEEL DRIVE (2WD) describes vehicles with a drivetrain that allows two wheels to receive power from the engine simultaneously. CONTENTS * 1 Four-wheeled vehicles * 2 Two-wheeled vehicles * 3 Two-wheeled drive with sidecars * 4 External links FOUR-WHEELED VEHICLESFor four-wheeled vehicles (and by extension, vehicles with six, eight, or more wheels) this term is used to describe vehicles that are able to power at most two wheels, referred to as either front or rear-wheel drive . The term 4×2 is also used, to denote four total wheels with two being driven. Most road vehicles use a 2WD layout due to its light weight and simplicity. Traction on the road is usually sufficient that the driving force can be reliably transmitted through only two wheels. For vehicles that have part-time four-wheel drive , the term refers to the mode when 4WD is deactivated and power is applied to only two wheels

4WD
FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE, also called 4×4 ("four by four") or 4WD refers to type of a vehicle, specifically one with its drivetrain capable of providing torque to all wheel ends of a two-axled vehicle simultaneously. It may be full-time, or on-demand, and is typically linked via a transfer case which provides an additional output drive-shaft, along with additional gear ranges . When a four-wheeled vehicle has torque supplied to both axles, this is described as "all-wheel drive" (AWD) . However, "four-wheel drive" typically refers to a set of specific components and functions, and/or intended offroad application, which generally complies with modern use of the terminology

Anti-lock Braking System
An ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM or ANTI-SKID BRAKING SYSTEM (ABS) is an automobile safety system that allows the wheels on a motor vehicle to maintain tractive contact with the road surface according to driver inputs while braking , preventing the wheels from locking up (ceasing rotation) and avoiding uncontrolled skidding. It is an automated system that uses the principles of threshold braking and cadence braking which were practiced by skillful drivers with previous generation braking systems. It does this at a much faster rate and with better control than many drivers could manage. ABS generally offers improved vehicle control and decreases stopping distances on dry and slippery surfaces; however, on loose gravel or snow-covered surfaces, ABS can significantly increase braking distance , although still improving vehicle steering control. Since initial widespread use in production cars, anti-lock braking systems have been improved considerably

Japanese Domestic Market
The term "JAPANESE DOMESTIC MARKET" refers to Japan's home market for vehicles. For the importer, these terms refer to vehicles and parts designed to conform to Japanese regulations and to suit Japanese buyers. Compared to the United States where vehicle owners are now owning vehicles for a longer period of time, with the average age of the American vehicle fleet at 10.8 years, Japanese owners contend with a strict motor vehicle inspection and gray markets. According to the Fédération Internationale de l\'Automobile , a car in Japan travels a yearly average of over only 9,300 kilometers (5,800 miles), less than half the U.S. average of 19,100 kilometers (12,000 miles).

Car Platform
A CAR PLATFORM is a shared set of common design, engineering, and production efforts, as well as major components over a number of outwardly distinct models and even types of cars , often from different, but related marques . It is practiced in the automotive industry to reduce the costs associated with the development of products by basing those products on a smaller number of platforms. This further allows companies to create distinct models from a design perspective on similar underpinnings. CONTENTS * 1 Definition and benefits * 2 Examples * 3 Advantages * 4 Disadvantages * 5 See also * 6 References * 7 External links DEFINITION AND BENEFITSPlatform sharing is a product development method where different products and the brand attached share the same components. The purpose with platform sharing is to reduce the cost and have a more efficient product development process

Rebadging
REBADGING, sometimes called BADGE ENGINEERING, is the application of a different brand or trademark (badge , logo or manufacturer's name/marque) to an existing product (e.g., an automobile ) and subsequently marketing the variant as a distinct product. Due to the high cost of designing and engineering a new model or establishing a brand (which may take many years to gain acceptance), economies of scale make it less expensive to rebadge a product once or multiple times than to create different models. The term badge engineering is an intentionally ironic misnomer , in that little or no actual engineering takes place

Common Rail
COMMON RAIL DIRECT FUEL INJECTION is a direct fuel injection system for petrol and diesel engines . On diesel engines, it features a high-pressure (over 1,000 bar or 100 MPa or 15,000 psi ) fuel rail feeding individual solenoid valves , as opposed to a low-pressure fuel pump feeding unit injectors (or pump nozzles). Third-generation common rail diesels now feature piezoelectric injectors for increased precision, with fuel pressures up to 3,000 bar (300 MPa; 44,000 psi). In petrol engines, it is used in Gasoline direct injection

Air Conditioning
AIR CONDITIONING (often referred to as AC, A.C., or A/C) is the process of removing or adding heat from/to a space, thus cooling or heating the space's average temperature . Air conditioning
Air conditioning
can be used in both domestic and commercial environments. This process is most commonly used to achieve a more comfortable interior environment, typically for humans or animals; however, air conditioning is also used to cool/dehumidify rooms filled with heat-producing electronic devices, such as computer servers , power amplifiers , and even to display and store artwork. Air conditioners often use a fan to distribute the conditioned air to an occupied space such as a building or a car to improve thermal comfort and indoor air quality . Electric refrigerant-based AC units range from small units that can cool a small bedroom, which can be carried by a single adult, to massive units installed on the roof of office towers that can cool an entire building

Kei Car
KEI CAR, K-CAR, or KEI JIDōSHA (軽自動車, lit. "light automobile") (pronounced ), is a Japanese category of small vehicles, including passenger cars (kei cars or kei-class cars), microvans , and pickup trucks (kei trucks or kei-class trucks). They are designed to comply with Japanese government tax and insurance regulations, and in most rural areas are exempted from the requirement to certify that adequate parking is available for the vehicle. This especially advantaged class of cars was developed to popularize motorization in the postwar era. While successful in Japan, the genre is generally too specialized and too small to be profitable in export markets

Mazda Spiano
The SUZUKI LAPIN is a kei car with a five-door hatchback body, manufactured since 2002 by Suzuki for the Japanese market only, and was also marketed in Japan only by Mazda as MAZDA SPIANO under an OEM agreement under their Autozam marque until 2008. It is based on Suzuki's popular Alto kei car. The Lapin has a very distinctive, boxy shape, that apparently proved popular with female buyers. The name "Lapin" stems from the French word for "rabbit ", and the car sports rabbit-head badges. The Mazda version has differences concerning some styling details, including a different front end.
