By 2029, the Feds are requiring 75% or more of a vehicle must be American made if tax-payer dollars will be used to buy it.
The Feds are a major purchaser of vehicles for fleet use. Going forward, the Detroit Big Three must ensure their vehicles contain the right amount of American content, or they risk being left out of federal fleet purchasing orders.
The feds will purchase only electric passenger vehicles by 2027 and will cease the purchase of all internal combustion engine vehicles for fleet use by 2035. (Source: GMAuthority.com)
