The electric car industry is young and growing quickly.
The global transport sector is shifting from the internal combustion engine to EVs.
The U.S. aims for half of its new vehicle sales to be electric by 2030. That's a huge target considering that EV sales accounted for just about 4% of the total vehicle sales in the U.S. in 2021.
With roughly 15 million new vehicles sold in the U.S. last year, EVs and the companies making them have an immense growth opportunity.
Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) is the biggest name, but there are others like Workhorse Group Inc. (NASDAQ:WKHS) and Arcimoto Inc. (NASDAQ:FUV) that are exhibiting rapid growth.
And even more change may be ahead for EV makers.
Let’s take a look at some EV stocks I’ve yet to mention that are reasonably priced, performing well, and noted by Wall St. experts to be wise portfolio choices…
Best Value Electric Car Stocks
These are the electric car stocks with the lowest 12-month trailing price-to-sales (P/S) ratio. For companies in early stages of development or industries suffering from major shocks, this can be substituted as a rough measure of a business's value. A business with higher sales could eventually produce more profit when it achieves, or returns to, profitability. The price-to-sales ratio shows how much you're paying for the stock for each dollar of sales generated.
|Company||Price ($)||Market Cap ($B)||12-Month Trailing P/S Ratio|
|Li Auto Inc. (LI)||28.38||29.3||8.2|
|NIO Inc. (NIO)||29.31||46.6||8.9|
|XPeng Inc. (XPEV)||46.66||40.0||16.0|

Fastest Growing Electric Car Stocks
These are the electric car stocks with the highest year-over-year (YOY) sales growth for the most recent quarter. Rising sales can help investors identify companies that are able to grow revenue organically or through other means, and find growing companies that have not yet reached profitability. In addition, earnings per share can be significantly influenced by accounting factors that may not reflect the overall strength of the business. However, sales growth can also be potentially misleading about the strength of a business, because growing sales on money-losing businesses can be harmful if the company has no plan to reach profitability.
