    Under 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(A), a motor vehicle that was not

the model of the motor vehicle to be compared, and is capable of being 
readily altered to conform to all applicable FMVSS.
    Where there is no substantially similar U.S.-certified motor 
vehicle, 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(B) permits a nonconforming motor vehicle 
to be admitted into the United States if its safety features comply 
with, or are capable of being altered to comply with, all applicable 
FMVSS based on destructive test data or such other evidence as NHTSA

applicable FMVSS, is either substantially similar to a motor vehicle 
manufactured for importation into and/or sale in the United States, and
