One customer asked me to help import the Lupo 3L to US, Would it now be possible easily?

I said the Audi A2 would be better option for import for the user in the long term.

Once they hit 25 years old easy peasy

If it’s under 3000lbs a few states allow them imported as an NEV if you restrict the speed.

Empty weigth or gross vehicle weigth under 3000lbs?. Speed limitation is easy but what speed limit is then max permitted?
Arent NEV only for evs?

Google says 35 or 45 mph?

Lupo 3l has still 2 more years to 25 year mark.

For the 25 year old ones is there little to no limitations to modifications or condition? Or car has to be in oem fully spec

IIRC modded cars had been exported to the United States too, yet it becomes harder to ensure their compliance to the safety and emission standards they were meant to meet when new. But anyway, most of the time I had been asked by Americans to find them some engine from Brazilian or Argentinian trucks for them to adapt into some US-spec model, the emissions certification was the reason I pointed out to avoid such swaps, even though some Americans resort to off-road engines or stationary ones meant to be used on those refrigerated truck bodies.
