With the Covid pandemic hitting the economy all around the world quite hard, the situation with Uncle Sam is nothing different than the rest of the world.

However, with the economy dropping down, the US consumers have become more committed to buying local products in order to assist in boosting the fallen economy of their country. Automobiles are no exception along their way towards being greater at these difficult times.

According to a study conducted by an automobile website, Cars.com, most of the US citizens believed that it is rather unpatriotic to purchase a foreign made vehicle than a one made on their own soil.

The study indicates that 72 percent of new shoppers have given priority to the geographic origin considering it being the deciding factor of their purchase.

Nevertheless, we all know that the days are long gone when a shopper finds a Ford or a Chevrolet at a showroom with the vehicle being built with 100 percent American made parts inside a factory built on American soil. Nowadays, it is more common in most industries that the brands outsource their operations to other countries where the labour cost and manufacturing cost are cheaper, which in return made a huge impact to their profit margin. Therefore, it is a bit of a difficult assessment to find a vehicle built centralised in one single geographical region.

Furthermore, the study shows another interesting fact, which is that most of the people actually do not know which brand is actually from which region or the country they originated. One of the most common facts around the automobile industry, this creates a huge confusion in one’s mind when their aim is to prioritise their purchase based on the region or the country in which the vehicle was built. As an example, most of the buyers think that Hyuandai is an automobile manufacturer based in either Japan or China, where it is actually a South Korean automobile company. Similarly, most people think that Lexus is an American or a German manufacturer, but in reality, the company is a Japanese automobile manufacturer.

To avert this confusion among the US buyers, the website Cars.com itself posted a list titled as ‘Most American models for 2021”. Consequently, it will be easy for American shoppers to buy their own brands when they are out there at the showroom.

Tesla Model 3 (Fremont, Calif.)
Ford Mustang (Flat Rock, Mich.)
Tesla Model Y (Fremont, Calif.)
Jeep Cherokee (Belvidere, Ill.)
Chevrolet Corvette (Bowling Green, Ky.)

However, the list moderators have left some vehicles out of this list considering few facts such as manufactures built less than 1000 models per year, fleet-only cars and manufacturers who are planned to cease their production after the existing model year. Moreover, they have kept the Hybrids and plug-in vehicles in a separate list.

The website’s Assistant Managing Editor and the Lead researcher of the report, Kelsey Mays said that the reason behind making such a list is due to the high demand of the consumers on buying American-made items and as an American company, they also wanted to encourage the people’s enthusiasm in contributing to the emerging economy after the huge effect from the pandemic.
