Easy solution then. Remove the NA final assembly requirement. In 2023, Kia and Hyundai will qualify for half the battery credit or full depending on how much is not from China.
I'd be in favor of this. As I've stated before, the fight against climate change is a global issue and we shouldn't worry so much where the EVs are manufactured.

I wouldn't be in favor of your last point which is to delete the EV tax credit. Gas cars and gasoline are far too cheap and so EVs need a tax credit to be competitive. If you delete the EV tax credit, then yank all subsidies for gasoline and see it spike above $6/gal everywhere. I'm sure big oil wouldn't let that happen so the best we can do is have an EV tax credit and slowly titrate down oil & gas subsidies.
