BHP per Tonne Calculator

Marketing departments and salesmen will often quote a vehicles horsepower as an indicator of its performance, however horsepower on its own is only one of the factors which determines performance. For example a truck may have over 500bhp but it can be easily out accelerated by a lightweight kit car with just 120bhp.

For this reason, enthusiasts will often reference a vehicles horsepower per tonne figure as a much more accurate indicator of performance.

Using our calculator below you can easily calculate BHP per tonne for your car or bike.
