Tesla makes the most American vehicles on the road

The Cars.com site publishes an annual ranking of the most American vehicles, that is to say those whose production and parts (including engine and transmission) are most concentrated in the United States.

For 2022, Tesla is once again in the spotlight. The Model Y and Model 3 occupy the first two places, while the Model X and Model S follow in fifth and sixth place.

You should know that all Tesla vehicles for the North American market are assembled on the continent, more precisely in its factories in Fremont (California) and Austin (Texas). The industry average is around 52%. In addition, Elon Musk’s company uses many components manufactured in-house or from domestic suppliers.

Here are the top 10 most American vehicles on the road in 2022 according to Cars.com:
