The IGBTs don't parallel so well IIRC, they allow more amps as they heat up so the hottest one gets hotter and eventually need their magic smoke replaced. Mosfets do the opposite and are better suited for paralleling, so brick IGBTs for EVs it sounds like.

Edit, it was discussed about 2300 posts back
