For example, neither Toyota Hilux nor Tacoma are sold in Japan, and Nissan Navara/Frontier pickup trucks are not offered in Japanese market despite being available elsewhere.

For example, neither the Audi RS 6 and the RS 3 hatchback were available in North America, but the mechanically identical fastback-type hatchback RS 7 and the sedan version of the RS 3 are available. In general, the stigma attached to station wagons and hatchbacks [[note]]this term only covers traditional two-box hatchbacks, not the fastback-type hatchbacks with longer rear overhangs[[/note]] prevents manufacturers to export these vehicles to the North American market as they can't justify the cost for homologation with a low sales volume.

Japan uses a set of completely incompatible vehicle US. America does not receive the RS3 hot hatchback, the RS5 coupe, and the RS6 and RS7 sedans, and was only briefly offered the RS4 in the mid-2000's.

* Arms sales are big business, but subject to restriction by the military and government of the country a given weapons manufacturer is based in. There are lots of examples, which are generally in one of two categories; either the weapon/weapons platform is allowed to be sold with modifications (less effective electronic warfare systems, etc), or there is a complete ban on foreign sales (such as the F-22 and B-52 being US only aircraft).
