Japanese cars can be found in any part of the planet. But the Japanese themselves do not go to these: most of the models are made specifically for the West. Car have a very, very strange. A typical car in Japan looks like a refrigerator on wheels. Why it happened – try to understand.
The fact that the machine is small, is not surprised. Still live on the islands, the place is not enough, the city is densely populated. In the stream you probably learned the compact Honda Jazz, one of the most popular cars are here.
Brands are the same models are quite different. Nissans, Honda, Toyota, Suzuki produced for the domestic market of incredible monsters.
A typical Japanese car – minivan-compact car that looks very similar to a refrigerator.
Or of being a geeks with retro style.
The fact is that in Japan, our usual passenger cars are divided into two types: regular and “light” cars. They are called “kei-cars.” Light machines can do as a van or truck. On conventional machines, they differ low power, high efficiency and yellow numbers. And most importantly, for the purchase of such a machine does not require identification of a parking space and significantly reduced taxes.
With parking in Japan it is all very difficult. I mean, it is so strictly regulated that you do not sell a car unless you bring proof that you owned or leased parking place there. In the courtyard there are empty seats, but they can not officially rent? All the usual car already can not buy.
That’s the secret of kei cars.
Accustomed that Subaru makes sports cars? Here – not at all.
If most American car is a huge pickup truck, then most Japanese – a tiny minibus. In which drives the whole family.
