Basically a car manufacturer has a free choice to offer what the market requests or what he thinks to be good for market. However, there are some areas which are more or less strictly regulated all over the world by law or subsequent jurisdiction - in particular emissions, theft protection, vision and signalling, EMC and product safety, including functional safety. Those are the criteria which only contribute weakly to distinguish the own brand from the competitors, but law fulfilment is necessary, although some countries fail to supervise compliance with laws. If cars or components are sold in different markets, knowledge of all relevant laws and their interpretations is indispensable. In contrast to laws, technical standards are not directly compulsory, but many laws refer to certain standards, and, in a lawsuit, a good reason is necessary for why the state of technology as defined by standards has not been implemented. So standards get indirectly compulsory.
