Do you like Electric Vehicles? Are you as excited as I am that more and more automakers are adding EVs to their fleets? If you aren’t, oh well… You don’t have to be!
As an investor, there isn’t much room for interpretation; the transition is underway. EVs will see great longevity, and before too long—how long exactly is difficult to say—they’ll be the only cars on the road.
If that’s the case, wouldn’t it be a good idea to invest in EVs now? Analysts say absolutely…
