Sometimes in life, everything lines up. For electric vehicle company Sono, this IPO couldn’t have been better timed.

This IPO follows the high-profile public debut of Rivian (NASDAQ:RIVN), as well as the recent de-SPAC (special purpose acquisition company) Lucid Group (NASDAQ:LCID). Both stocks have outperformed the market by a very wide margin of late, posting eye-watering valuations.

For Sono, this has been a great thing. Shares of the EV maker doubled in earlier trading as investors sought more exposure to this sector.

Let’s dive into a few things investors may want to know about Sono following this move.
