Bottomline

 

The EV sector has witnessed solid growth due to the global shift to zero-emission vehicles. The US government has set a target of at least 50 percent of all automobiles sold by 2030 to be clean energy vehicles. China, the world’s largest vehicle market, is also looking at more zero-emission cars in the country. In addition, Europe has set a target to reduce carbon emissions by 55% by 2030 and 100% by 2035. However, irrespective of these promising developments for EVs, investors should evaluate the firms carefully before investing in stocks.
