The only electric battery manufacturers in the US are Tesla and Panasonic’s Nevada Gigafactory, which supply battery cells for the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y.

With more electric vehicle brands coming to the US, it is important that battery cell production also comes to the US.

The presence of these factories is important to the electric car ecosystem and brings many good manufacturing jobs to the US, directly and indirectly.
