One example is Lexus, Toyota’s car division, which offers the models in Japan and in the United with the same engines. It is in where the choices are restricted, to Lexus’ hybrid models, of course have significantly fuel economy than the gasoline ones.

Toyota itself tends to the same general direction, that in Japan their car is vastly larger than in the US, and the much smaller cars in the and the 2-Box categories.

In the United the Toyota Tacoma pickup is very popular with It was a compact pickup truck at its in 1995, but has since swelled the midsize pickup class. still smaller than the Tundra. Neither of these are in Toyota’s Japanese lineup.
