2 Ancillary Electric Vehicle Stocks Wall Street Predict Will Rally 40% or More

The electric vehicle (EV) industry has immense growth potential because the world is gradually moving toward zero-emissions transportation. And investors’ interest in the EV space is evident in the Global X Autonomous & Electric Vehicles ETFs’ (DRIV) 101.8% returns over the past year versus the tech-heavy Nasdaq’s 47.1% returns.

The growth of the EV industry is making the prospects bright for ancillary EV companies also. For example, because most EVs rely on lithium-ion batteries for power, companies involved in producing these batteries are well positioned to grow.

Given this industry’s promising prospects, sector analysts are highly optimistic about the  near-term performance of QuantumScape Corporation (QS) and Romeo Power, Inc. (RMO). As such, we think it could be wise to scoop up these stocks now.
