  • Wall Street price targets suggest Tesla’s stock price could stagnate this year.
  • Analysts have identified 10 publicly-listed competitors as stocks to buy, according to TipRanks.
  • Five electric vehicle manufacturers offer upside of over 100%.

If you ask a retail investor for their thoughts on electric-vehicle stocks, chances are it won’t be long before they bring up Tesla.

Elon Musk’s firm enjoyed a successful 2021, with shares surging 43% over the past year to almost $1,100. More recently, Tesla’s promising fourth-quarter results inspired a 10% rally in the stock in a single day.

But there’s more to the sector than just Tesla. There are currently 19 EV manufacturers listed on US exchanges, with market capitalizations ranging from just $250 million, to $75 billion.

EV start-up Rivian established itself as a potential future Tesla rival last year, with a blockbuster November IPO that valued the company at $86 billion. Ten Wall Street analysts currently have a ‘buy’ rating on Rivian, with an average upside of 54% for the stock, according to the data insights firm TipRanks.

“Supply help is on the way, as Rivian now will be breaking ground on a new second US factory in Georgia, which will be a key production artery for the company over the coming years,” Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives said in a recent research note. He set a price target for shares at $130, representing an upside of 60%.

Analysts’ outlook on Tesla is more mixed. Of 29 analysts surveyed by TipRanks within the last three months, nine said investors should hold the stock, while five gave Tesla a ‘sell’ rating.

“Tesla does have a first-mover advantage in the EV revolution, but it is unclear whether the company will be dominant over the longer-term,” Bank of America analyst John Murphy said, maintaining a $1,200 price target.

We identified which EV manufacturing firms currently offer greater upside potential than Tesla, according to Wall Street analysts. The 10 stocks are listed below – five have an average target price upside of over 100%.
