4 Electric Vehicle Stocks Outperforming NIO YTD

NIO (NIO – Get Rating) has enjoyed more than its fair share of attention from investors in ’20 and also at the start of ’21. If you are on the hunt for electric vehicle stocks aside from NIO, you are not alone…

Do some digging and you will find there are more electric vehicle stocks than those featured in the mainstream media. It simply does not make sense to put all of your investing eggs in the basket of NIO when there are several other green automotive stocks just as worthy or even more worthy of your money.
