The automakers around the world have been forced to shut factories this year due to a crippling shortage of automotive microchips, but Tesla has been standing tall and is able to continue production at its plants in California and Shanghai. The electric carmaker continues to see growing pent-up demand throughout China and Europe despite stiff competition from the likes of General Motors ( GM Quick Quote GM - Free Report) and Nio ( NIO Quick Quote NIO - Free Report) , with the United States on the verge of seeing further increased demand once the EV tax credit ceiling is lifted. Tesla expects another year of strong growth in vehicle deliveries as it has been aggressively expanding its vehicle production capacity. It reiterated its plan to achieve 50% average annual growth in vehicle deliveries in the coming years. The ramp-up of production at Tesla's Shanghai Gigafactory, which began delivering vehicles to customers in China in January last year, and its forthcoming facilities in Berlin and Texas are likely to help achieve this goal. Both in-progress Gigafactories in Berlin and Texas are on track to begin production and deliveries this year. Also, Tesla Semi deliveries will begin later in 2021. Despite the awesome results, shares of Tesla dropped as much as 2% in aftermarket trading on elevated volumes. The beaten down price seems an attractive entry point for investors seeking to bet on this luxury carmaker, which has a top Growth and Momentum Score of A each. The stock currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) and belongs to a top-ranked Zacks industry (in the top 36%). ETFs to Buy
