Which Luxury Cars are Made in America?
With the recent legislation that incentivizes EV manufacturers make their cars in America, luxury brands like Audi and Mercedes-Benz are contemplating new U.S. factories. Which begs the question, which luxury cars are made in America today? There are several from both U.S. and foreign brands, including a few that may come as a surprise.
Cadillac is the most American luxury car brand
When it comes to American made luxury cars, no brand can beat what Cadillac brings to the table. Every car that Cadillac produces is made in the U.S.A, something that no other automaker can claim.
The vaunted Cadillac Escalade comes from a factory in Texas, while the Lyriq, XT5, and XT6 SUVs come from a Tennessee factory. The smaller Cadillac XT4 is made in America at the Kansas City plant, while their cars, the CT4 and CT5 come from a plant in Michigan. That means 100% of Cadillac cars that sell in America are from here, putting it in the number one spot.
Half of Lincoln’s lineup is made in America
While Lincoln is also an American luxury car brand, one of its four models comes from Canada. However, the Lincoln Aviator comes from a factory in Illinois. Meanwhile both the Corsair and Navigator ship from the brand’s Kentucky plant. However, the Nautilus is currently made in that Canadian plant at least through 2024, according to Ford Authority.
All BMW SUVs are made in America
While the brand’s sports cars and luxury sedans are made in Germany, all BMW SUVs are made right here in America. This includes the BMW X3, X4, X5, X6, and X7 gas-powered cars, as well as the all-new BMW XM turbo V8 hybrid SUV.
Mercedes-Benz models made in Alabama
While much more limited in scope, there are a handful of Mercedes-Benz models from American factories. The three-row Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV along with the GLE SUV and GLE Coupe are all made in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. That factory also produced the Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan until 2020, when production moved to China.
Volvo production came to the U.S. in 2016
While Volvo is much later to the game than some of its counterparts, you can now find made-in-America Volvo cars starting with the 2018 Volvo S60. Production of that model began in 2018 in the Ridgeville, South Carolinea plant.
In addition, the 2022 Volvo XC90 three-row SUV began production in the same plant in late 2021, meaning that Volvo’s smallest and largest vehicles both come from the same American factory.
More American-made luxury cars are coming
With the recent incentives for American-made EVs, we will undoubtedly see more luxury cars produced in America. Volkswagen is already on the hunt for locations to build a factory that would produce both VW and Audi EVs. And with Tesla considered a luxury brand, there is already one major American car company producing all its EVs on our shores.
Top 5 Cities with the Most Supercars
Drivers and collectors of supercars understand that the experience of getting behind the wheel goes beyond anything traditional. Much like the name indicates, supercars surpass the competition in terms of style, design, and performance on the road.
Whether they’re referred to as supercars, exotic cars, or hypercars, it’s hard to deny that these luxury vehicles are in a class all their own. Those fascinated by supercars collectively appreciate the technology and design standards that elevate these vehicles to a new level of excellence.
Owning a supercar is an exciting and exclusive privilege, but some cities consistently rank above the rest when it comes to supercar collections. Looking at the world map, cities with the most supercars have a way of standing out from the crowd.

Aston Martin is a significant contributor to supercar ownership in London as well. It’s interesting to note that the average individual annual income in London lingers around the equivalent of $71,000 USD in 2020.
Coming up just behind London, Moscow makes its way to the upper ranks of cities with the most supercars across the globe. In this city of 12.5 million residents, supercar showmanship is on full display.
While the general population in Moscow isn’t considered excessively wealthy, those raking in the most annually are putting a significant portion towards their supercar collection. To this end, Porsche, Ferrari, and Lamborghini stand out as favorites in Moscow.
3. Los Angeles
Known as the hometown of many celebrities, glittering lights, and upscale style, it may come as no surprise that Los Angeles would make the list of cities with the most supercars.
