China-based rival Nio Inc.’s stock was headed for a second-straight loss, as it slipped 1.9% ahead of Thursday’s open after declining 1.1% on Wednesday. Shares of Workhorse Group Inc. eased 0.3% premarket after shedding 6.0% on Tuesday, while Nikola Corp. fell 1.6% after losing 3.9% on Wednesday. The declines comes as futures for the S&P 500 were down 0.3%.
