4 Top EV Stocks To Add To Your Watchlist Right Now

As the stock market looks to recover from yesterday’s losses, electric vehicle (EV) stocks continue to make headlines. This seems to be the case across the board from the largest players in the space to upcoming names. Namely, this would be in reference to Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) and Rivian (NASDAQ: RIVN) this week. To begin with, TSLA stock is in focus thanks to news of CEO Elon Musk selling about $5 billion of his holdings. While the move may seem negative at face value, Musk is doing so to mostly satisfy tax obligations. If anything, things appear to be picking up speed on the operational front for Tesla now. Just last month, the company reported that its China vehicle sales are almost half the size of its U.S. sales.

At the same time, we also have Rivian, a newcomer to the EV stock trade. The electric truck manufacturer went public yesterday via an initial public offering (IPO). RIVN stock gained by 29% throughout intraday trading to $100.74 a piece, valuing Rivian at $86 billion as of yesterday’s closing bell. Not to mention, the company is also looking to expand its EV fleet business beyond its key client Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN). Before going public, Rivian also announced plans to open orders for its EVs to consumers.

All in all, the EV industry seems to be moving at breakneck speeds now. Additionally, with President Joe Biden set to sign the $1 trillion infrastructure bill on Monday, even the EV charging and EV battery stocks could gain traction. With all that said, here are three top EV stocks to consider in the stock market today.

Best EV Stocks To Buy [Or Sell] This Week

Ford Motor Company

Starting off, we have multinational automobile manufacturer Ford Motor Company. Its Ford+ plan for growth and value creation combines existing strengths as the company carries out its electrification works. Impressively, the company expects 40% of its Ford global vehicle volume to be all-electric by 2030 and has raised planned electrification spending to $30+ billion by 2025. This would include the development of its proprietary IonBoost batteries. F stock has enjoyed gains of over 120% year-to-date.

On Wednesday, the company announced that together with Purdue University researchers, they have taken an important early step to make recharging EVs simpler and faster. Through a research alliance, researchers from both groups are working to develop a new, patent-pending charging station cable that could combine with in-development vehicle charging technology. This could lead to recharging your EV as quickly as gas fill-ups. The researchers also intend to begin testing a prototype charging cable in the next two years to determine more specific charge speeds for certain models of EVs. Given the prospects that could come from this partnership, should you consider investing in F stock?

The tests were performed by Mobile Power Solutions, an independent battery laboratory, ANAB accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017, based in Beaverton, Oregon. The company also announced an agreement with another top-10 global automotive OEM alongside its existing partnership with Volkswagen.
