Twenty million people who drive on wrong side of road do not buy enough cars to be interesting compared to a billion each Chinese, Indians, and Indonesians. And they all drive on correct side of road.

They'll just import them over the border from Germany.

Um, China and India do not drive on the same side of the road.

/ unless by correct you mean speeding down sidewalks and medians, in which case they do.

I know it's just a Fark headline and I'm being a pedant, but can we please dispense with the "drains go the opposite direction" myth once and for all?

India and Indonesia drive on the left.


So, interestingly enough, does Japan, the country in which Toyota is headquartered.

You're a dipshiat. And you drive on the wrong side of the road. And your units of measurement are archaic and nonsensical.

And a quarter of this thread is devoted to pointing out I failed to check the driving habits of countries I mentioned. But I bet I'm right at root, production in India and Indonesia can probably fill demand and export cars to the twenty million capita Austalia. There just aren't enough people in Australia to make cars there.

It's more about costs and exchange rate. Their Australian operations weren't making cars just for Australia - they've exported more than a million cars over the past 30 years.

That, and the only other people buying cars in the sizes we make them in without a Mercedes or similar luxury badge on them are . . . Americans.  And y'all done farked up the Pontiac G8 deal.
