Electric cars are becoming all the rage. And this time, it's not about Tesla.
Chinese electric vehicle maker Kandi Technologies (KNDI) has been moving ahead with an aggressive plan to bring 5,000 to 10,000 electric vehicles to market in the next year or so.
And Kandi's stock has nearly doubled since June 1. Seems like it's not just Americans who are enamored with the idea of 'plug and drive.'

Shares of Tesla Motors drifted higher Tuesday ahead of the electric car company's annual shareholder meeting.
Tesla (TSLA) shares have surged more than 180% this year, although the stock has pulled back from a high above $110 last month.
Investors are keeping an eye on the meeting for any announcements that could drive the stock back up, but so far the news has been pretty dull.

Investors can't seem to get enough of Elon Musk.
Just take a look at SolarCity (SCTY).
Shares of the Musk-backed solar energy company rallied 16% Monday.
Shares took a hit last week after the company reported a wider-than-expected first-quarter loss. But the stock quickly bounced back after SolarCity reached a deal with Goldman Sachs (GS) to finance $500 million of solar projects.
Investors on StockTwits were quick to jump on the Musk bandwagon.
Tesla shares did something on Friday that they don't often do. They fell.
The stock was down nearly 3% in late morning trading even though Tesla (TSLA) announced that it was boosting the size of its secondary offering. Earlier this week, the electric car maker said that proceeds from this stock sale would be used to pay back the terms of a loan from the Department of Energy.
Still, it's understandable why MOREPaul R. La Monica - May 17, 2013 11:28 AM ET
Talk about a warm-up.
Investors can't seem to get enough of companies that harness the sun's power. Shares of SolarCity (SCTY) soared to an all-time high of $31.89 on Monday.
The company has only been public for five months and shares have nearly quadrupled from their $8 IPO price back in December.

No cruise control for Tesla.
Shares of the electric car maker took off Tuesday, racing to a new high above $60 right out of the gate. But by late morning, the enthusiasm had chilled, and the stock was down about 3%.
The supercharged moves come one day before Tesla (TSLA) is set to report its first quarterly profit ever.
And it's all thanks to the all-electric Model S.

Tesla is on a roll.
Shares of the electric car maker rallied to a new high Tuesday, just days before the company is set to report its first profit ever.
Tesla (TSLA) offered up a preview of that report earlier this month, saying sales of its all-electric Model S were exceeding expectations.
The Model S is a full-size, four-door luxury sports sedan. While it was unveiled in 2009, it wasn't available until last MORECatherine Tymkiw - Apr 30, 2013 11:12 AM ET

Tesla may be the Apple of the auto business. By that, I mean it's a company that's disrupting an entire industry ... not that it's a stock going nowhere fast.
