What is a Japanese Domestic Model?

The term “Japanese domestic model” (JDM), also “Japanese domestic market” refers to Japan’s home market for Japanese vehicles and components. For the importer, these terms refer to Japanese-brand automobiles and parts designed to conform to Japanese regulations and to suit Japanese buyers. Japanese domestic market vehicles may differ greatly from the cars that Japanese manufacturers build for export and vehicles derived from the same platforms built in other countries. Some of these Domestic vehicles may be Pre-Production models that are manufactured for testing on the Domestic Market and may never attain major production.
