7 Electric Vehicle Stocks That Are Ready to Charge Higher

7 Electric Vehicle Stocks That Are Ready to Charge HigherThe Biden administration has announced a framework for a slimmed-down $1.5 trillion infrastructure bill. Part of that framework will be a $12,500 tax credit for electric vehicle purchases. That increases the current subsidy by $4,500. And it’s music to the ears of EV companies in the United States who are making plans to scale production.

This doesn’t mean the country is close to having an EV in every driveway. There is still the issue of a charging infrastructure. The chip shortage will be a headwind on auto production of all types for at least the next several quarters. And many EV companies are not even on the starting blocks yet.

But It does mean that momentum is building. And for investors who retreated to the sideline after the EV bubble burst in early 2021, it may be time to get back in the game.

In this special presentation, we’re looking at seven stocks that stand to benefit from these subsidies in the United States.

  2. Ford
  3. General Motors
  4. Electrameccanica Motors
  5. Fisker

#1 - Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA)

Tesla logo

Earlier this year, we left Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) off a list of seven EV stocks. Part of that was that it seemed too obvious. But TSLA stock also was looking overvalued. Since then, the stock received a haircut but has now pushed to a record high. In fact after receiving an order for 100,000 of its vehicles from Hertz (OTCMKTS:HTZZ), Tesla stock became the latest stock to achieve a $1 trillion market cap. 

The company posted earnings in October and beat on both the top and bottom lines. Perhaps more impressive was the degree to which the company beat year-over-year (YOY) comparisons. Revenue was 56% higher and earnings were 144% higher from the same quarter in 2020.

Although Tesla CEO Elon Musk has expressed his displeasure that this subsidy will benefit the unionized big three automakers, Tesla should come out alright. The company is well-positioned to take advantage of these tax credits. Not only is it already delivering EVs, but it has a charging infrastructure in place to help reduce the range anxiety that other EV manufacturers will have to overcome.

#2 - Ford (NYSE:F)

Ford Motor logo

I was a fan of Ford (NYSE:F) as a player in the electric vehicle sector because I saw the company as an example of perseverance paying off. The company was the first of the Big 3 to go all-in on electric. But investors don’t typically reward good efforts they want to see results. We can be a “what have you done for me lately” bunch. 

Well, Ford has answered that question in a big way. The legacy automaker posted earnings on October 26 and gave analysts a lot to think about. In addition to beating forecasts on the top and bottom line, the company raised its full-year profit forecast and restored its dividend. 

And the company’s optimism comes, in large part, to demand its EVs. Chief executive officer Jim Farley remarked that the company has 200,000 orders for its electric Mustang Mach-E SUV. The company is also beginning to scale its EV production and Farley believes by the middle of this century Ford will be able to build over 1 million battery electric vehicles with more capacity likely to be needed.

#3 - General Motors (NYSE:GM)

General Motors logo

The first two electric vehicle stocks on this list are currently trading above the consensus price target of analysts. That’s not the case for General Motors (NYSE:GM). According to analysts, GM stock has a 28% upside from its level as of this writing. 

General Motors is attacking the electric vehicle market on multiple fronts. First, it “aspires to eliminate tailpipe emissions from new light-duty vehicles” by 2035. And to support that aggressive target, GM is developing its own EV charging service, the Ultium Charge 360. I’m an investor that is a fan of companies that give consumers a reason beyond price to choose their products. And that could be what GM is achieving with this service. It doesn’t hurt that it’s another potential revenue stream. 

GM stock dropped after delivering a mixed earnings report. It beat on earnings but came in light on revenue. However, if you’re looking to invest in a company that will be a major player in the EV market, you should look at this dip as an opportunity.

About General Motors

#4 - Electrameccanica Motors (NASDAQ:SOLO)

Electrameccanica Vehicles logo

Are you ready for an autocycle? Electrameccanica Motors (NASDAQ:SOLO) is betting that you are. The company recently announced that they are beginning to deliver its electric vehicles. The company is bringing a single-seat vehicle to market. 

It’s fair to question how big the audience will be for its vehicles which aren’t exactly made for big people. And it bears watching to see if the company can get any contracts from last-mile delivery companies. 

However with the stock price now in the penny stock range (it was trading at nearly $11 a share earlier this year), there looks to be a lot of untapped value for speculative investors. Analysts agree and give SOLO stock a $9.42 price target which is 176% higher than its current price. 

I thought it was irrational exuberance to see SOLO stock post a $1 billion market cap at one point this year. I also think that with the company delivering on its promises and beginning to have revenue coming in the door, it’s time to give the company a second look.

#5 - Fisker (NYSE:FSR)

Fisker logo

A key selling point for Electrameccanica is that it’s starting to deliver vehicles. The same can’t be said of Fisker (NYSE:FSR) … yet. The company’s first foray into the EV space will be an electric SUV, the Ocean. The vision behind the Ocean, which is set by designer and Fisker CEO Henrik Fisker, is to make the Ocean, in part, out of recycled materials from the ocean.

Projection is not scheduled to begin until late 2022, and that’s one reason that the stock is down from its 2021 highs. However, the company has been steadily checking off the boxes. Earlier this year it signed an agreement with Magna International (NYSE:MGA) to outsource the manufacturing of the Ocean. Fisker also has 10,000 non-binding pre-orders. 

And on November 17, 2021, a year to the date when production is scheduled to begin, the company will show off the Ocean at the L.A. Auto Show. Positive reviews could push FSR stock much closer to the $23.92 price target set by analysts.

#6 - Canoo (NYSE:GOEV)

Canoo logo

I’ll admit to being all over the map on Canoo (NYSE:GOEV). When I first began researching the company, I loved the company’s story. It was going to use its proprietary “skateboard” platform to create a multipurpose lifestyle vehicle that would be the first to feature a “by wire” design. Plus, the company was promoting a “pay as you go” subscription model.

Those plans have been brought back to earth. The company is still launching its lifestyle vehicle, but they’ve added a delivery fan and pickup truck to its lineup. And in the company’s last earnings call in August the truck makes up the majority of the company’s 9,500 preorders. A delivery van and pickup truck are practical if not exactly innovative. But it may be reflected by the leadership change at the company that is pledging an underpromise/overdeliver culture. 

With that in mind, the company has some things in its favor. Like Fisker, Canoo is not planning to be in production until late 2022. But they have a contract manufacturer picked out. And the company recently announced that Panasonic (OTCMKTS:PCRFY) will supply the company’s batteries which features proprietary technology

#7 - Arcimoto (NASDAQ:FUV)

Arcimoto logo

Arcimoto (NASDAQ:FUV) combines a couple of compelling narratives in the EV sector. Arcimoto’s Fun Utility Vehicle (FUV) is another autocycle. Except unlike Electrameccanica Vehicles, the FUN is an autocycle built for two. In addition to its passenger vehicle, Arcimoto has two additional models. The Rapid Responder model is for security, emergency, and law enforcement services. The Deliverator is for last-mile service.

There are a couple of compelling reasons to consider FUV stock. The first is that the company is partnering with REEFDrive to offer a rental program. The rollout will be in Santa Monica, California. Renting the vehicle for an hour will cost about $15 which will be within the range of most consumers. 

Plus, many prospective customers may not even have to worry about the tax credit as the price of a vehicle is currently around $18,000 and may go lower as the company scales its production.

About Arcimoto

Arcimoto, Inc designs, develops, manufactures, sells, and rents three-wheeled electric vehicles in the United States. Its flagship product is the Fun Utility Vehicle (FUV) use for everyday consumer trips. The company also provides Rapid Responder designed to perform emergency, security, and law enforcement services; Deliverator, an electric last-mile delivery solution to get goods where they need to go; Cameo, an FUV equipped with a rear-facing rear seat and a modified roof built for on-road filming; and Arcimoto Roadster, an unparalleled pure-electric on-road thrill machine.

The potential tax credit for individual consumers may provide some temporary juice to the EV market. But the momentum has been building for over 20 years. Two of the key obstacles in the way of mass adoption are the lack of nationwide charging infrastructure and battery technology that keeps the price of building an EV more expensive than its internal combustion equivalent.

Those are larger issues that are being worked on in parallel with the production of electric vehicles. Many investors have been burned by the words, “this time it’s different.” However, this time it may very well be different. The growth won’t come overnight. But it does appear that the industry has reached a tipping point and it’s not going backward.

Now is the time to do your due diligence and find the EV stocks that you find the most appealing. However, the seven EV stocks in this presentation look like ideal candidates to be part of the growing EV sector.
