Jan. 5 (Reuters) – Demand for electric vehicles prompted U.S. automakers last year to reveal plans to spend billions of dollars to electrify gasoline-powered models or introduce electric cars and trucks with the aim to catch up with market leader Tesla Inc (TSLA.O).

General Motors Co (GM.N) and Ford Motor Co (FN) are among those leading the chase. Ford’s market value last week surpassed GM’s for the first time in five years, a sign of growing investor confidence in its electrification strategy.

Brokerage firm Wedbush estimates that the electric vehicle (EV) market could be worth $ 5,000 billion over the next decade. Here is a list of the top U.S. electric vehicle companies, along with their models and shipments, if applicable:
