In other EV truck news, legacy automaker Ford (NYSE:F) reached an impressive milestone for the first time in its long history. Shares of Ford have been on a tear this year and are now up 15% since the start of 2022. This surge has pushed Ford over the $100 billion level in terms of its market cap. Ford has a 12% stake in Rivian so the two companies do benefit when they each perform well.
