The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (Public Law) amends the Qualified Plug-in Electric Drive Motor Vehicle Credit (IRC 30D), now known as the Clean Vehicle Credit, and adds a new requirement for final assembly in North America that takes effect on August 16, 2022. Additional provisions will go into effect on January 1, 2023. Further guidance on these provisions is forthcoming. Find more information about the credit from the Internal Revenue Service.

List of Vehicles with Final Assembly in North America

The following table provides a list of Model Year 2022 and early Model Year 2023 vehicles with final assembly in North America based on data submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and FuelEconomy.gov as of August 1, 2022. Note that for some manufacturers, the build location may vary based on the specific vehicle, trim, or the date in the Model Year when it was produced because some models are produced in multiple locations. The build location of a particular vehicle should be confirmed by referring to its Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) using the VIN decoder described below or an information label affixed to the vehicle.

As vehicle manufacturers continue to submit the applicable vehicle identification information to the relevant government agencies, this list will be updated as more information becomes available.

NOTE: Some manufacturers that have vehicles assembled in North America have reached a cap of 200,000 EV credits used and are therefore not currently eligible for the Clean Vehicle Credit.

Specific Assembly Location Based on VIN

In addition to the list of vehicles with final assembly in North America listed above, the build location of a particular vehicle should be confirmed by the VIN or an information label affixed to the vehicle. The U.S. Department of Transportation’s NHTSA provides a VIN decoder that can be used to look up the vehicle’s assembly location using these steps:

  1. Enter the Vehicle Identification Number in the VIN decoder.
  2. Click the “Decode VIN” button.
  3. Look for the country name in the “Plant Information” field at the bottom of the page.

Find additional directions for using the VIN decoder to identify a vehicle’s build plant and country of manufacture.
