The list includes cars from manufacturers such as Audi, Ford, Nissan, Rivian, Stallantis (Chrysler, Jeep), Tesla, Volkswagen, and Volvo. The list applies to cars purchased after 2022. The IRS says the list is not complete and that people should check back on the website for additions to the list.
But the mere fact that a car appears on the list does not necessarily mean that the car is eligible for the credit. The IRS points out that the car must also have undergone final assembly in North America, and the car’s manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) must not exceed $80,000 for vans, sport utility vehicles and pickup trucks or $55,000 for other vehicles.
For example, the Tesla Model Y Long Range (5-seat variant; 2-rows) is on the list, showing it is subject to the $55,000 limit. But the 2023 model’s MSRP is expected to start at $60,000.
To see if a vehicle meets the assembly requirements, check its Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). A car’s MSRP can be found online.
In addition, the IRS has not yet released regs on the mineral and battery component requirements of the clean vehicle credit. Cars that are on the list now might not qualify after those regs are released.
