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.

This graphic shows the qualifying EV models in 2024, based on data from FuelEconomy.gov.

Which EVs Made the List?

Here are the EVs that are eligible for a U.S. tax credit of up to $7,500 at the point of sale:

CarVehicle TypeCredit AmountManufacturer's Suggested
Retail Price Limit
Chevrolet Bolt EUVEV$7,500$55,000
Chevrolet Bolt EVEV$7,500$55,000
Chrysler Pacifica PHEVPlug-in Hybrid$7,500$80,000
Ford Escape PHEVPlug-in Hybrid$3,750$80,000
F-150 Lightning*EV$7,500$80,000
Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xePlug-in Hybrid$3,750$80,000
Jeep Wrangler 4xePlug-in Hybrid$3,750$80,000
Lincoln Corsair Grand TouringPlug-in Hybrid$3,750$80,000
Rivian R1S*EV$3,750$80,000
Rivian R1T*EV$3,750$80,000
Tesla Model 3 PerformanceEV$7,500$80,000
Tesla Model X Long RangeEV$7,500$80,000
Tesla Model Y*EV$7,500$80,000

*F-150 Lightning includes Standard and Extended Range models. R1S includes Dual and Quad Motor models. R1T includes Dual, Performance Dual, and Quad Motor models. Model Y includes RWD, AWD, and Performance models.

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.

Ranked: Top 20 Countries by Plastic Waste per Capita

This was originally posted on our Voronoi app. Download the app for free on iOS or Android and discover incredible data-driven charts from a variety of trusted sources.

Single-use plastic waste is perhaps one of the biggest environmental issues of our time. Every year, millions of tons of plastic end up in oceans and landfills, harming wildlife and ecosystems.

To make matters worse, plastics take hundreds of years to decompose, leading to long-term environmental and health hazards as they break down into microplastics that contaminate water and food sources.

In this graphic, we visualized the top 20 countries that generated the most single-use plastic waste per capita in 2019, measured in kilograms per person. Figures come from research published in May 2021, which we sourced from Statista.

Data and Key Takeaways

The data we used to create this graphic is listed in the table below.

19🇫🇷 France3679
20🇸🇮 Slovenia3577

Countries from all around the world are present in this ranking, highlighting how plastic waste isn’t concentrated in any one region.

It’s also interesting to note how most of the countries in this top 20 ranking are wealthier, more developed nations. These nations have higher levels of consumption, with greater access to packaged goods, take-out services, and disposable products, all of which rely on single-use plastics.

Where’s China and India?

Note that we’ve visualized plastic waste per capita, which is different from the total amount of waste produced by a country. It is for this reason that major polluters, such as China and India, are not present in this ranking.

It’s also worth noting that this focuses on the demand side of plastics, rather than where plastic products were initially created or produced.
