If you are a car person, you might know that there are a lot of complications for a car model name in different cities and countries. There are different names for the same car brand that defines the uniqueness, or in some cases, similarity, of the cars.
The Ford Lobo and Ford 150 are the conventional car models driven around the USA. The only difference, Ford Lobo, is famous in Mexico while the latter is popular in the US. Similarly, Chevrolet Spark is known as Opel Karl in the UK. These different names play a vital role in shipping the cars of the same model to a region because of the physical location.
Each of these car’s fashion trends is unique to the location it is popular in. In Asia and a few parts of Europe, compact cars are more popular because of the streets and crowded areas. Dodge rebranded its Dart model to Fiat when being shipped to China as compact cars. The different names on most of these cars are mostly due to the language barriers in different countries. If Chevy Nova is brought to a Spanish speaking country, then “nova” translates to “no go” or “doesn’t go” in Spanish, which wouldn’t be a very keen selling point of a car.
