Suggested change to English definition of 車種
  • The current definition is limited to cars: "car make; car model."
    But 車種 is also applied to bicycles:
    "たくさんメーカーや車種があって決めきれない" (http://www.c-wadachi.com/wadachi-mifune.html)
    in a discussion of a bike shop and its inventory.

    I would have preferred to send this directly to jisho.org as a suggestion, but can't figure out how this is done. Perhaps someone will be kind enough to forward it to the appropriate editor.
  • Jisho.org does not have its own definitions, its based on a free dictionary called wwwjdic, so thats probably where the updates would have to come from.

    That said, according to the Daijirin (a popular japanese lexicon), 車種 applies to cars. Heres the definition from Daijirin:

    用途・型・年式などによって分けた自動車の種類。

    Not saying the article you linked is written incorrectly, but maybe its very uncommon or local to refer to other things than cars?
  • All suggestions, additions and changes should be made here:

    You could also edit an existing entry by finding it here in the dictionary and clicking on "edit".
