Default what duz the "w" in whp & wtq mean?

I know hp means horse power and tq is torque, but I have no idea what the "w" stands for and I've been seeing this ever since I started posting on here. Thanks.

It's how much horsepower/torque is at the wheels

Normally when manufacturers talk about hp they are talking about crank hp (chp) and some of that power is lost through the drive train so the whp will be lower.
