That's almost true but electric cars are much more simple than our current internal combustion engine powered vehicles.

Compare a Tesla with a Chevy, there must be an order of magnitude fewer parts in the Tesla.

This along with the increasing importance of the car software platform (monitoring, communication, self driving, etc) could present a perfect storm for traditional auto companies that are caught napping.
