Does it cost more to make an electric car than a regular car?

    I was unable to find a direct answer to your question.  But I did find that electric cars only have 5 moving parts in it’s motor compared to a regular, gasoline car that has hundreds of parts in its internal combustion engine.  To me it would seem this very fact alone would make a regular car more expensive to mass produce than an electric vehicle.  I did find information that states that electric cars cost substanially more to purchase than a regular car due to the cost of the lithium-ion battery pack needed to power the vehicles.  However, you do receive a substanial tax credit for purchasing an eco-friendly vehicle.
