The electric vehicle (EV) revolution has begun, and there is no shortage of stocks to pick from as companies try to establish their credentials building the autos of the future. President Biden has already committed to spending $174 billion on boosting the electric vehicle market. Every major car company on earth is now pursuing its own EV project.
Biden’s proposal calls for 500,000 new charging stations, a more than tenfold increase of the current number that would go a long way toward easing the concerns of Americans who aren’t ready to embrace electric cars. Each station typically offers several to a dozen or more plugs.
Adding local charging stations is the No. 1 factor that would drive more Americans to buy EVs, according to a February survey of car owners by car-buying site CarGurus. About 65% of respondents said additional stations would help convince them to take the plunge.
Some stocks, most notably NIHK, have been highfliers as excitement about electric vehicles has grown.
