In this article, we discuss the 10 EV stocks popular on Reddit. If you want to skip our detailed analysis of these stocks, go directly to the 5 EV Stocks Popular on Reddit.

The global chip shortage has hit the production of electric vehicles (EVs) around the world in recent months but EV stocks have paradoxically rallied amid this decline, perhaps because of the appeal of the new technology and the rapidly increasing demand of EVs. Electric vehicles are forecast to reach 7% of all global car sales this year, a 66% year-on-year growth, to reach over 5 million units sold. According to Research and Markets, a market intelligence firm, EV sales will represent nearly half of annual global vehicle sales by the end of this decade.

Growing EV markets in Europe, China, and the United States are likely to lead this boom. These regions are also expected to produce the bulk of the EVs shipped to other parts of the world. Consumer and government spending into the sector are also likely to increase as carbon emissions control becomes central to policymaking. A European proposal to push combustion engines off the road by 2035 has already won many backers.

Professional services firm Deloitte expects the EV industry to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 29% in the next ten years. In a report, the firm has forecast that China will likely control close to 50% of the global EV market by 2030, with Europe and the US following behind at 27% and 14% respectively. Some of the factors that will likely influence the pace of this growth include consumer sentiment, policy and regulation, original equipment manufacturing strategy and the role of corporate companies.

Retail traders are expected to play an important part in this whole story. These traders, who like to invest in growth stocks, have already poured hundreds of millions into equities this year. The enthusiasm with which a new generation of investors has embraced the stock market is evident from a cursory glance at finance forums on Reddit. In fact, since these forums became relevant to the moving of markets after the GameStop short-squeeze saga, they have also become the subject of probes and scrutiny from big finance.

These forums have helped drive an incredible rally into EV stocks this year. Some of the top EV stocks presently popular on Reddit include Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA), Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F), and XPeng Inc. (NYSE:XPEV), among others discussed in detail below. In the next few years, financial incentives, access restrictions, emissions targets, and the buildup of EV infrastructure will all help the EV industry to new highs. The recent initial public offering of Rivian, the biggest IPO in the US this year, is a testament to where the market is headed.
