Only 13 EVs Will Be Eligible for U.S. Tax Credits This Year

  • Eligible EVs include models from Chevrolet, Chrysler, Ford, Jeep, Lincoln, Rivian, and Tesla, with tax credits up to $7,500.
  • Tax credit process simplified: buyers now receive the discount directly at dealerships rather than through tax paperwork.
  • The update is part of a broader U.S. initiative to encourage EV adoption and support domestic manufacturing and clean energy investment.
EV

This year, the list of qualified electric vehicles (EVs) for U.S. tax credits is relatively small.

Many popular models like the Nissan Leaf, Ford Mustang Mach-E, and some Tesla Model 3s are missing - largely due to new battery sourcing rules. With stricter rules coming into effect, the number of models is dropping from 43 to 13.

Visual Capitalist's Marcus Lu created the following graphic to show the qualifying EV models in 2024, based on data from FuelEconomy.gov.

The good news is that getting the discount is now easier for customers.

Instead of filling out tax paperwork to receive the tax credit, buyers will automatically get the discount at participating dealerships at the time of purchasing.

Additionally, models eligible for a partial credit of $3,750 include Rivian EVs along with plug-in hybrids from Jeep, Ford, and Lincoln.

Ultimately, the tax credit is designed to encourage people to switch to EVs and purchase models that are sourced in America. Overall, it is part of a wider plan to boost manufacturing and clean energy investment across the country.

U.S. EV Manufacturing Push

Several automakers are ramping up investment in American battery plants.

In October 2023, Toyota announced it was investing an additional $8 billion in its North Carolina battery plant, adding 3,000 new jobs.

Along with this, Ford is constructing a 3,600 acre facility for battery manufacturing and EV production, valued at $5.6 billion. By 2026, it is targeting to make 500,000 electric trucks annually. Located in Tennessee, the mega-campus is set to create 6,000 new jobs.

Still, Ford is scaling back EV investment, citing a reluctance among customers to pay a premium for electric models. The United Auto Workers deal, estimated to cost Ford $8.8 billion, likely impacted EV investment plans.

The cost of EV batteries can range from around $8,000 to over $22,000.

Automakers including Lucid, General Motors, Honda, Nissan, and Stellantis (Chrysler’s parent company) are all building, or plan to build, battery facilities in the country.
