I would define it as a car that a majority of the building is done in the US from an economic point of view. Which means that Mercedes (some vehicles) VW, Toyota, Nissan,... are american cars. It is basically from the point of view of jobs less relevant where the HQ is and even the design process is not lots of jobs. It should be pointed out that most of the companies selling in the US at least do proving ground testing here, and many with plants in the us do a significant part of the design in the US. Of course by this definition at least some GM and Ford cars sold in the US do not qualify.
