In this episode of The Bull & The Bear I want to talk about two EV stocks: Nikola Corp. (Nasdaq: NKLA) and Nio Inc. (NYSE: NIO).

Investors are monitoring one sector of the market — electric and self-driving vehicles.

Technology like hands-free driving or vehicles that need little to no gasoline has the potential to disrupt major industries. And investors are betting on that disruption.

The iShares Self-Driving EV and Tech ETF (NYSE: IDRV) — an exchange-traded fund that tracks some of the biggest companies in the self-driving and electric vehicle sector — has jumped 131% off its March 2020 lows.

While most of that gain has been on the back of industry giant Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA), many other self-driving and electric vehicle companies are starting to make their mark.
