The US Treasury has released a list of all the electric cars and carmakers who qualify for the Federal Tax Credits and who don’t.
The list of EVs and carmakers who qualify for the Federal Tax Credits has been released by the US Treasury. In a bid to promote the mass adoption of EVs, many governments across the globe offer various subsidies and incentives to EV buyers. The aim is to motivate new car seekers to choose EVs over traditional ICE-powered vehicles. While the initial prices are pretty high, benefits in the form of cash discounts or tax credits help a lot. Here is the list of EVs that are eligible for the latter.

How to Qualify for Federal Tax Credit?
The EV must be manufactured in North America to qualify which is why Kia and Hyundai don’t qualify. To qualify for a $3,750 EV tax credit, at least 40% of battery minerals must come from North America or from a country that has a free trade agreement with the US. This number is set to increase to 80% in the next four years. Moreover, half of the battery components must be made or assembled in North America to qualify for the other $3,750 tax credit. It will soon go to 100%.
