10 Things Still Made in America

Cars
Given the global marketplace, it is hard to pin a specific "nationality" on the majority of cars. Almost every vehicle on the road is a multinational mutt of parts and labor.

Each year, Cars.com releases its "American-Made Index," a rundown of vehicles made with U.S. labor and at least 75% domestic parts.

Its ranking, released this past summer, included: Toyota (TM) Camry (80% domestic parts, assembled in Kentucky and Indiana); Honda (HMC) Accord (80% parts, assembled in Ohio and Alabama); Chevrolet (GM) Malibu (75% parts, assembled in Kansas); Ford (F) Explorer (85% parts, assembled in Chicago); Honda Odyssey (75% parts, assembled in Alabama); Toyota Sienna (75% parts, assembled in Indiana); Jeep Wrangler (78% for two-door, 79% for four-door, assembled in Ohio); Chevrolet Traverse (75% parts, assembled in Michigan); Toyota Tundra (80% parts, assembled in Texas); and the GMC Acadia (assembled in Lansing, Mich. using 75% domestic parts).

Also made in America is the high-end Tesla (TSLA) Roadster, a $110,000-plus sportscar by a Palo Alto, Calif., company.

The electric sports car, although assembled in Menlo Park, Calif., uses a body imported from the U.K. Its forthcoming S Series sedan, which will sell for more than $57,000 will be built entirely in the U.S. -- a good thing, given that Tesla was the recipient of a low-interest, $465 million loan from the U.S. Department of Energy to aid development of the car.
