Are These The Best EV Stocks To Invest In Now?

Electric vehicle (EV) stocks are among the notable sections to watch in the stock market today. After all, the industry focuses on making and marketing, well, EVs. With EVs playing a major role in combating the global environmental crisis, investors in this field could be looking toward long-term gains. For the most part, they would be spoilt for choice as more upcoming EV companies are making their entrance into the market now.

In this respect, we could look at newcomers like Rivian (NASDAQ: RIVN) or tried-and-true names like Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA). Speaking of the latter, Tesla has and continues to steal the spotlight from its peers this week. Namely, CEO Elon Musk is now close to achieving his goal of selling 10% of his stake in the company. Despite Musk having more pre-planned sales transactions ahead, investors already seem keen to jump on TSLA stock. This is evident as the company’s shares continue to hold above the $1,000 mark. In terms of market capitalization, the EV giant is currently over the $1 trillion point again as well.

At the same time, the company is also broadening its manufacturing operations now. To highlight, Tesla is now working with Syrah Resources, an Australian minerals company that focuses on natural graphite. Through a four-year supply deal, Tesla will be receiving its graphite from an upcoming Syrah plant in Louisiana. To point out, graphite is among the key minerals used in EV batteries. Given all this excitement in the EV space, should investors be watching these top electric vehicle stocks in the stock market now?
