    Interesting.
    It should be noted this isn't a complete list. I saw plenty more in the factory.

    Indeed - nice find. Surprising not to see Daimler mentioned, for all the steering column and window controls. And then there's the on-site out-sourcing of the upholstery.

    Has anyone seen a domestic parts content label for the Model S?

    I don't recall where, but I remember the amount listed as 55%? Don't quote me.

    Yes, the window sticker on my 85kWh claims 55% US+Canada content. I would assume that the North American content would be higher for smaller batteries.

    Yes, and I believe it needs to be 60% for NAFTA rules to apply. Canadians got caught in this and ended up with duty being applied to the price. I was hoping I could buy the car and battery separately (and only pay duty on the battery) but no go.

    Yes. I am under the impression that the climate controls are from Toyota.

    It would be interesting to learn the supplier(s) of the audio components.
