Both General Motors and Ford have launched their electric vehicles, and Cramer believes that they stand as rivals for existing EVs. GM plans to have 30 EV models on the road by 2025.

American television personality and CNBC’s Mad Money Jim Cramer recommended holding Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) and General Motors (NYSE: GM) stocks over the likes of Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) and other electric vehicle (EV) companies.

Cramer noted his recommendation on owning stocks in Ford and General Motors while speaking on his Mad Money show on the 15th of March. He referred to Ford and General Motors as less risky stocks to buy considering the current market status. At the moment, prominent names in the automotive industry are correcting after surging in the past year.

While speaking, Cramer said:

“If you want to bet on electric vehicles with much less risk, I say buy some Ford or General Motors. Despite their internal combustion engine bones, they’ve got meaningful exposure and, just as important, they fit the current moment in a way that Tesla or the SPACs simply don’t.”

CNBC said in a report that Tesla is beginning to lose its command in the EV space across the US. According to research conducted by Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS), there are now more carmakers who have also launched their electric products. Morgan Stanley also said that domestic sales of electric vehicles grew 34% in February year-over-year. In the same period, the firm said Tesla’s market share has dropped to 69%.

Both General Motors and Ford have launched their electric vehicles, and Cramer believes that they stand as rivals for existing EVs. GM plans to have 30 EV models on the road by 2025.

At the time of writing, MarketWatch data showed that Tesla stock is down 0.96% to $701.17. TSLA has surged 695.31% in its one-year record and increased by 0.32% since the year began. In the last three months, the EV company has risen 10.65% and has advanced 25.74% in the last five days.
