Tesla Inc., (NASDAQ: TSLA) the biggest Ev-maker, and Nio’s (NASDAQ: NIO) stocks have been surging amidst other EV-makers who saw a decline. The EV-makers had been experiencing significant downfall the past week. However, it seems that they covered it up and their stocks are soaring. But the situation is not the same for all.

TSLA Stock Performance

Tesla’s shares skyrocketed to $1,188.6 today. This indicates a surge of 5% in the early market hours. It touched the peak of $1,194.22 just within 25 minutes of the market opening. This sudden surge took place following CEO Elon Musk’s tweet about Tesla Model S Plaid being launched in China in the month of March next year. However, this wasn’t a direct tweet but a reply to a question by a fellow follower about the car’s launch in China. The car is set to be priced at $129,990.
