No reason it has to be that way though?

Even if the motor of an electric vehicle is simpler, it needs lots of other components that an internal combustion engine does not.

If you talk to a mechanical engineer, they’ll point out to you that just comparing the number of parts in the two different types of engine is misleading because it ignores that those electric motors in cars have a lot of other complexities to them that can also be points of failure.

I think this will still happen….I’m just not sure how quickly.
