Tech = people. Assuming the acquirer wants to use and develop the tech, they will need people to do it, and who's better for it than those that have developed it? Of course, if the acquirer just wants to shut it down they may fire everybody, but in that case they may do so even without the acquisition.

My small diesel car was serviced twice for regular maintenance so far. 600 € in total, many are cheaper. About half of that is engine and transmission, the rest is various stuff that they will surely prescribe for EVs as well, if you want to keep the waranty. Plus, the EVs will probably require the "surcharge for working on shiny, expensive new stuff, whose owner must be full of money".

The only failure so far was a rear brake seizing and overheating, which can happen to EVs just as well.

It is much harder to find a job than to keep one.
