Let us delve into EV stock’s  price movement and financial health:

Lion Electric Company (TSX:LEV)

The Montreal-based EV firm manufactures clean automobiles using its advanced technology.

Lion Electric has a market cap of C$ 4.64 billion. It has gained over 5 per cent to C$ 24.91 apiece in the last one week.

The firm reported delivery of 24 all-electric vehicles, a remarkable growth compared to two EVs delivered in Q1 2020.

Its total revenue grew by US$ 5 million to US$ 6.2 million in Q1 2021, up 416 per cent on a year-over-year (YoY) basis against $1.2 million a year ago.

However, it incurred a net loss of US$ 1.8 million for the quarter, an increase of 64 per cent YoY. The company claims that this loss came on the back of rising expenses in business expansion and hiring of a new workforce to speed up its EV production.

The company has finally entered the US clean vehicle market and stock market to capitalize on its merger with the US-based SPAC company.

The company also deals in assembling vehicles' modules, such as battery units, truck cabins, auto bodies, etc.
