Lots of supporting materials and service will be gone, too.
1) No more oil and filter changes.
2) No more coolant, or hoses, clamps, radiators.
3) No more tuneup parts.
4) No more transmission oil and filter changes.
5) No more pollution controls of any kind.
I look forward to those headaches being gone. Lots of savings there, too.
Which after 95K miles on my Prius has amounted to 2 oil changes a year. At current prices that's only 1/10 of the savings I need to see to switch on purely economic grounds.

People assume electric cars will always cost more than gasoline cars. I’m sure people complained the first cars were so much more expensive than horses too.
I think it’s quite possible after widespread adoption, that the overall cost of electric cars may well be less than for a gasoline car. That may still be some years away.
Years as in decades absent massive subsidies.
