Electric vehicles are becoming so popular that 1 in every 5 cars sold in the U.S. is an EV. The potential that EVs possess is also reflected in the stock market. The EV industry is expected to grow at a compounding annual growth rate of 15.5% from 2023 to 2032, representing the astounding growth potential of the industry.
