Nov 22, 2021 (StockMarket.com via COMTEX) -- Do You Have These Top EV Stocks On Your December 2021 Watchlist?

Electric vehicle (EV) stocks are among the most active stocks in the stock market today. By and large, this is mostly thanks to a variety of short-and long-term factors. For starters, investor hype around emerging names in the field like Rivian ( NASDAQ: RIVN ) is putting the industry in the spotlight now. Hot IPO's aside, there is also long-term growth potential to consider as well. Namely, EVs are, in theory, part of the equation when it comes to tackling climate change. With major governments across the globe trying to cut down their country's emissions, this is apparent. Because of all this, I could see investors watching the top EV stocks in the stock market now.

For one thing, some of the biggest names in the EV trade continue to make aggressive plays as well. As of last week, Ford ( NYSE: F ) is now working together with chip manufacturer GlobalFoundries ( NASDAQ: GFS ). Through the current deal, the duo are working to bolster Ford's chip supply. In doing so, Ford would be directly addressing the global chip shortages head-on. Regardless of whatever reason you have for eyeing EV stocks now, there are plenty of options. With that said, could one of these EV stocks be worth buying now?

Nio Inc.

Next up is Nio, a pioneer in China's EV market. On top of designing and manufacturing its lineup of EVs, the company also utilizes next-generation technologies in connectivity, artificial intelligence, and autonomous driving. It also offers comprehensive value-added services and a convenient and innovative suite of charging solutions to its users. This includes Power Swap, its innovative battery swapping service.

On November 9, 2021, the company reported its third-quarter financials. Firstly, deliveries of vehicles for the quarter were 24,439, doubling from a year earlier. Secondly, its vehicle sales were a whopping $1.34 billion for the quarter, also doubling year-over-year. The company also ended the quarter with $7.3 billion in cash and cash equivalents.

Impressively, this is done despite continued supply chain volatilities. Not resting on its laurels, the company continues to accelerate its products and technologies development and will be bringing new products based on its Nio Technology Platform 2.0 to users in 2022. With that being said, will you consider investing in NIO stock?
