The electric vehicle sector has been one of the hottest on the market for the better part of 2020 and 2021, but so far in 2022 it has been all downhill.

Shares of Tesla dipped a further 2.15% despite a price target raise to $1,300 from Bank of America. Nio, Li Auto (NASDAQ: LI), and Rivian (NASDAQ: RIVN) were also trading lower, while Lucid Group (NASDAQ: LCID) and XPeng (NYSE: XPEV) managed to eke out gains.
NIO stock news
Speaking of Rivian, shares of the electric truck maker dipped below its IPO price during intraday trading on Thursday. The reason? Despite Bank of America being bullish on the stock as well, it was the report that Rivian’s biggest competitive advantage was signing a partnership with another EV maker. Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Stellantis, the parent company of Chrysler and Dodge, are partnering to release the Dodge Ram ProMaster EV to the consumer market. Not only did Amazon sign on with another EV maker, but it is to make another electric truck model. Shares of Rivian were down 2.98% on Thursday.
