The term JDM (Japanese domestic market) is well-known for auto enthusiasts and evokes images of powerful sports cars and sleek, stylish designs.
JDM cars have existed since the mid-1960s when Japanese automotive manufacturers began exporting vehicles to other countries.
They quickly gained a reputation for being reliable, stylish, and affordable. Today, JDM cars are coveted by collectors and automotive aficionados around the world. What is the Difference Between JDM and USDM Cars?
The term JDM refers to any car or truck made in Japan for use in the domestic market. However, most people refer to the cars that are manufactured by Japanese automakers and exported to other countries as JDM. These cars are often labeled with the acronym USDM, which stands for United States Domestic Market. This is to differentiate them from American-made vehicles. The term JDM is used to describe Japanese cars that are not produced for the U.S. market.
Why Are JDM Cars So Popular? The reason that JDM cars are so popular is that they are very affordable in comparison to their USDM counterparts. This is because the Japanese government imposes a very high tax on imported vehicles. In addition, cars are also very affordable in comparison to other countries.
