    "Of the 10 vehicles on the Cars.com 2013 American-Made Index, half of them belong to brands that originate in Japan. There was once a point in time where Americans feared that brands like Toyota and Honda would put American automakers out of business and take away jobs. In 2014, Honda and Toyota are among American automotive manufacturing’s most prominent job-makers. Future versions of the Cars.com list may have a new number one, however, with the news that Tesla’s Gigafactory would increase the Americanness of its parts to 90 percent, which would beat even the F-150 by a wide margin."

    Does this mean in the distant future we might not have to pay the 6% import tariff?

    Yes, I would assume that battery pack production in the USA would make the car a slam-dunk for NAFTA. As it stands they're only something like 2% short of the mark (60%).
