In the US, Tesla’s Model 3 still qualifies for the full $7,500 federal tax credit on electric vehicles—but not for long.

Cars that take delivery by Dec. 31 are eligible for the entire credit under president Joe Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). After that, the tax credit “will reduce to $3,750 for Model 3 Rear-Wheel Drive and Model 3 Long Range,” a banner on Tesla’s website warns.—Ananya Bhattacharya | Read More

Every time Apple has looked for an alternative to China for production, it has turned to India–this time, it’s for battery production.

Apple is encouraging suppliers to move toward India-made iPhone batteries for the upcoming iPhone 16 line as part of its broader effort to diversify supply chain, the Financial Times reported on Dec. 6, citing anonymous sources. The tech giant has reportedly given the mandate to Shenzhen-based Desay and Taiwanese battery supplier Simplo Technology.—Ananya Bhattacharya | Read More

The rules surrounding EV tax rebate eligibility will change in the US in 2024. There are still a lot of unanswered questions about which cars will be eligible for the full $7,500 federal incentive. Unlike the current system, which requires you to take the discount from the purchase of the car as a reduction in your tax bill when you file taxes, the new system will allow dealers to take the full amount as an instant discount from your purchase price, and it’ll be applied to your taxes after the fact. The new system is a bit more stringent, however, requiring a lower MSRP cap and a battery built in the US to be eligible. So which cars fit the bill?—Bradley Brownell | Read More
