Two electric motors and paraphernalia such as axles, control arms, etc, and lots of Lithium batteries.... probably not much more than an iron OHV V8 with transmission, driveshaft, SRA, and that constantly-draining fuel tank.

Going fast in an electric car is going to cost more than equal speed with gas, but it's like a laser versus inkjet printer; pay up front and enjoy lower operating costs versus lower entry cost followed by a life of buying fluids.

I'm really getting used to the idea of never visiting a gas station or changing oil again.
