Volkswagen

wants to be the leader in electric vehicles around the world. It isn’t satisfied playing Pepsi to Tesla’s

Coca-Cola.

The German auto-making giant laid out updated EV ambitions over the past couple of days, at an investor event and a shareholder meeting.

Volkswagen

3 Electric Vehicle Stocks to Avoid at All Costs in 2021

Electric-vehicle stocks have charged higher in 2020, with investors enthusiastically buying into the revolution that is disrupting the automotive industry.

The potential is real, but the stocks appear to be getting ahead of themselves. Many of the companies surging higher have yet to generate any meaningful revenue, and even those that are selling products are trading at very un-auto-like valuations. 

Some of these companies will turn into long-term success stories, but for now the stocks look frothy. Here is why three Fool.com contributors are avoiding buying QuantumScape (NYSE:QS), ElectraMeccanica Vehicles (NASDAQ:SOLO), and Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) heading into 2021.
