    Tesla will hit the 200K ceiling for the current US tax credit either before or very soon after starting production of the Model 3, just when it would make the most difference to volume sales that are much more price sensitive.

    Why the Nissan Leaf is labeled even though 80 percent of it is actually made in Japan | VentureBeat | Green | by John Voelcker, Green Car Reports

    Tesla has by far the most US content and with the Model 3 and Gigafactory on line will be the most "American" car company in a generation.

    What do you think about a campaign to pass a new zero emission tax credit with a much higher cap (say 1 million credits - not vehicles produced, exports shouldn't count) but limited by the US content of the vehicle. Only applies to US assembled vehicles: $7500 X US Content Fraction.
