On Monday, stocks of Tesla surged after it sewed up a three-year deal with Chinese lithium producer Ganfeng.
Accordingly, the world’s largest EV firm rocketed 8.49% or 94.59 points to $1,208.59 per share.
In the post-market trading, it followed its hike as it rose 0.88% or 10.61 points to $1,219.20 per share.
In addition, it is the first automaker to stand with a market capitalization of $1.21 trillion.
The latest contract marked the security of battery-grade lithium products for Tesla amid the persisting supply crunch in the industry.
Subsequently, the latest contract would start in 2022 to 2024. Meanwhile, both of the companies did not disclose the sales amount and value of the agreement.
Aside from Tesla, Ganfeng, the world’s leading lithium company by market capitalization, already established supplies of battery-grade lithium to other EV producers.
At the same time, it also boosted 9.32% or 1.76 points to $20.65 per share, 60.00% higher this year.
Moreover, Tesla also focused on its two new factories in Texas and Berlin that would start production by year-end.
Remarkably, the plants are vital to sustaining its growth that had defied projections in the last 18 months.
