Electric vehicle names continued to be dragged down by the ongoing growth sell off this year, as little has changed since the calendar has turned. On Wednesday, shares of Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA), Lucid Group (NASDAQ: LCID), Rivian (NASDAQ: RIVN), XPeng (NYSE: XPEV), and Li Auto (NASDAQ: LI) were all down considerably during the session.
