Data gathered by EV Job Hub revealed that the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) has boosted elective vehicle (EV) manufacturing investments in the United States. According to the information gathered, 47% of EV manufacturing investments have occurred after the IRA was passed. 

As of November 17, 2023, $173 billion investments in electric vehicle and battery manufacturing were made in the United States. The investments have generated 212,000 jobs in the US. In the 11 years before the IRA was passed, only $91 billion was invested in EV and battery manufacturing. Since the IRA was enacted 15 months ago, it has generated $82 billion investments in EV and battery manufacturing in the United States. 

Michigan and Georgia have been the most successful states at enticing companies to invest locally in EV or battery manufacturing. Both states have announced private investments estimated to be above $23 billion.
