The difference between ‘made in America’ and ‘American-made’
It’s important to understand the difference between ‘made in America’ and ‘American-made’.
‘Made in America’ refers to the location of assembly. In this case, Tesla is 100% made in the USA.
‘American-made’ refers to the proportion of parts, labor, and development work conducted in the USA. According to the Kogod School of Business, the Tesla Model S has a 55-percent American-made rating. This is due to the fact that battery cells are supplied by Panasonic, which manufactures them overseas.
