Highlights

  • Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) gave a return of over 35% in the past 12 months.

  • Ford Motor Company's (NYSE: F) stock gained more than 47% in a year.

  • Chinese EV-maker NIO Inc. (NYSE: NIO) delivered 6,131 vehicles in February.

The EV stocks might be worth exploring now, given the uncertainty over the traditional energy supplies and trends to go carbon-neutral in efforts to halt climate change. The global commodities market is currently seeing a major upheaval due to the Russia-Ukraine war, as these countries account for a significant share in global supplies.

This provides an opportunity to revisit the consumer discretionary sector, with the fast-moving segment facing an immediate supply challenge, at least in areas like oil and food. In addition, support for EVs will likely grow as countries set ambitious targets to achieve climate goals.

Here we explore the top five EV stocks worth considering.

Bottom line:

Thanks to its remarkable growth in recent years, the EV sector is drawing more investor interest. They are hoping to capitalize on the growing push for clean energy. Though companies are facing supply hurdles, they believe it is transitionary. The enthusiasm in the market can be seen from Rivian's blockbuster IPO last year that took its valuation to over US$100 billion. However, investors should exercise caution when investing in the stock market.
