In some countries, buildings are built on very steep hills. So, you can see why our cars won't sell in those countries. More often than not, it won't be able to climb up. If it did, the lifetime of the engine would be about the end.

Is the above correct?
Thanks.

"Our cars won't sell" means that no one would buy our cars, even if someone tried to sell them. ("Our cars won't sell" is an intransitive use of "sell," meaning "to attract buyers, to be a popular item.")

"Our cars won't be sold" means that no one would even try to sell the cars.
