New $7,500 EV Tax Credit Passes Senate, Requires Automakers to End Reliance on Chinese Batteries

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 has passed the Senate, which includes a new $7,500 EV tax credit that could benefit automakers that were no longer eligible under the previous system. While the previous tax credit was limited to 200,000 vehicles per manufacturer, the new law raises it. However, it will require automakers to possibly change how they approach production. To be eligible from 2024, automakers must ensure that at least 40 percent of battery materials come from North America. That percentage rises each year until 2029, when 100 percent American batteries will be established. However, not everyone is happy with the EU feeling that the act discriminates against foreign products and is incompatible with the World Trade Organization.

2023 GMC Canyon combines luxury and off-road prowess with 310 hp turbo engine

The midsize truck segment is getting a renaissance of sorts, as the impressive 2023 Chevrolet Colorado is this one, the 2023 GMC Canyon. The new Canyon may “only” have a single four-cylinder engine in its lineup, but the turbocharged 2.7-liter lump manages 310 hp (231 kW / 314 PS) and 430 lb-ft (582 Nm) of torque. The Canyon can also be had in AT4X trim, which offers off-road enthusiasts an additional 10.7 inches (272 mm) of ground clearance, 33-inch tires, and e-lockers front and rear. Meanwhile, those who like a touch of luxury in their trucks can opt for the Denali, with a wood and leather interior, heated and ventilated seats, a heated steering wheel, and a seven-speaker Bose sound system.

BMW believes that you will get used to subscriptions and that will reap the benefits

But while many companies so far only offer subscriptions for big tech-intensive features like autonomous driving, BMW believes its users will be willing to pay to unlock smaller features — think heated seats and adaptive headlights. Do you agree?
