A slew of new electric vehicles are eligible for a tax credit that was revised as part of the Inflation Reduction Act, recently signed into law by President Joe Biden.

As we have reported, this credit for EVs purchased new has been renamed the “clean vehicle credit” and changed in a few other ways.

Now, the IRS has issued clarifications about the requirements of the clean vehicle credit, and the U.S. Department of Energy has released a list of the vehicles that are eligible.

In order for a vehicle to be eligible for the credit — which is still worth up to $7,500 — final assembly of the auto generally must take place in North America.

And beginning on Jan. 1, 2023, additional provisions will be put into place, with “further guidance” to be announced later, according to the Department of Energy.

Following is a list of 2022 and 2023 models eligible for the credit. Note that some vehicles assembled in North America have reached a cap of 200,000 EV credits used. That means they are not currently eligible for the clean vehicle credit.
