Summary List Placement

Chinese EV makers plunged Tuesday as investors continued to mull over Beijing's regulatory squeeze that has tightened across industries and rattled global markets. 

Shares of Xpeng dropped nearly 17%, while Nio fell as much as 10% Tuesday. Meanwhile,  Li Auto dropped as much as 14%, and Niu Technologies shed 16%. 

While there was no new regulation directed towards the country's electric-vehicle makers, the downward movements in stock prices appear to be a part of a broader sell-off in US-listed Chinese stocks

China's increased scrutiny on certain businesses began late 2020 following the abrupt cancellation of Ant Group's IPO. A clampdown on the fintech giant then spread to Alibaba and Tencent earlier this year, with both getting hit with anti-monopoly measures and fines.

Since then, newly public ride-hailing firm Didi has been hit with regulatory actions by China, which has cited data-security concerns. Regulation that could prevent publicly-listed companies from teaching school curriculum has also hit Chinese education companies hard in recent days. 

Beijing's crackdowns on its technology and education sectors have erased $769 billion in value from U.S.-listed Chinese stocks in the last five months, according to Bloomberg data.
