The Jane's article lists quite a lot of buyers:

 

With the Portuguese order, Embraer is now under contract to build 35 KC-390 aircraft for the Brazilian Air Force (Força Aérea Brasileira: FAB) and the FAP. Letters of intent (LoIs) have also been received from Argentina (6), Chile (6), Colombia (12), and the Czech Republic (2).

 

The latter are only intents to buy, but still.

Given that its capacity is ten tons less than the Kawasaki C-2, is it significantly less expensive, or is politics the driving criteria?

Would like to see some C-2 sales but the list of countries are small South American and European countries. Looks like its half the cost of a C-2 so cost must be a factor.

Well, the Argentinians are 'intending' to buy new (or 'new) fighters since I can remember.
