I was wondering what is the exact word of a vehicle usage statistics? For example, what should I call my car's total traversed distance?

  • What other usage statistics did you have in mind? Aug 9, 2015 at 7:10
  • There isn't an "exact" word. "Mileage", for instance, may be used to mean several different things.

The total of traversed kilometers is called the mileage of the car.

The liters of fuel used per 100 km can be called (fuel) consumption or fuel economy.

The height, width and length are the dimensions of the car.

I'm not aware of other specific words, but horsepower, weight, etc. all fall under the (technical) specifications of the car.

    But, in the US, as least, "mileage" is also used to mean "miles per gallon".

It's not a single word but you're talking about the odometer reading.


CARFAX is a vendor that provides vehicle history reports, and sometimes the vendor's name becomes a synonym for its product.

The report includes information about mileage, maintenance, accidents, repairs, and ownership.
