Investing.com — Shares of QuantumScape Corp (NYSE:QS) climbed more than 22% on Monday, to around $37.89.
The only stock-specific news announced on Monday is that the lithium battery technology company has secured a campus in San Jose, Calif., a place it described as being the future hub of its upcoming manufacturing activities.
However, the primary reason for its shares rising can be put down to Congress’ approval of a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill late Friday.
The bill includes around $7.5 billion worth of funding towards a nationwide network of more than 500,000 EV chargers. There was also funding set aside for low emission vehicles.
As a result, stocks in the EV space have surged, with QuantumScape, backed by investors such as Volkswagen and Bill Gates, being among the main beneficiaries.
