As the Bank of Canada left interest rate altered on January 26, investors are seemingly moving back to riskier options like electric vehicles (EV) stocks.

The EV industry is among the few growing spaces today, and it is believed to be the future of the automobile sector by many. Some legacy automakers worldwide are now turning their focus to electrifying their fleets, which, while spurring increased competition in the EV market, can cause the industry to grow at a much faster pace.

That said, let us get to know two Canadian stocks that can emerge as significant players in the booming EV industry.

1.   Lion Electric Company (TSX: LEV)

Lion Electric is a North American electric vehicles company that manufactures zero-emission all-electric trucks and buses for paratransit and mass transit.

The Montreal-headquartered EV maker recently took possession of its Joliet Illinois facility, where it said that critical equipment will be used to manufacture its electric vehicles.

2.   GreenPower Motor Company (TSXV: GPV)

GreenPower Motor Company, a Vancouver-headquartered manufacturer of electric medium and heavy-duty vehicles, is said to have signed an agreement, in January this year, to lease/purchase a manufacturing facility in South Charleston, West Virginia.

The EV maker increased its revenue by 57 per cent year-over-year (YoY) to US$ 4.44 million in Q2 FY2022.

GreenPower stock closed at C$ 7.5 apiece on Thursday, with a week-to-date (WTD)return of almost 16 per cent.

Bottomline

The EV manufacturing space, in the right scenario, can grow substantially in the future to become a prominent player in the renewable tech industry, as such cars become more affordable and more people opt for it. 

Keeping in mind the industry's future growth prospects, some Canadian EV stocks, at their current valuations, can be a healthy pick for growth investors.
