PKW m (genitive PKW or PKWs, plural PKW or PKWs)
- passenger car (abbreviation of Personenkraftwagen)
- The plural often takes no ending in formal standard German because of a general tendency to avoid endings in acronyms. In normal speech, however, -s is only rarely omitted.
- The spelling PKW’s with an apostroph for the genitive and plural is non-official and non-standard, but is sometimes seen.
