They are selling it for about as much as it cost them to build it, $500 controller, $700 motor, $400 for fuse, wiring, pot box and other random parts, $200 for main contactor, adapter plate $350.
to give you 25 miles of range you might have $1,500 to $2,000 in batteries, so at the very most $4,100 in parts outside of buying the car... there are lots of VW's out there that need engines because someone was restoring one an moved or ran out of money.
