Much wear is caused or aggravated by the conditions in the engine bay: heat and vibrations. EVs don't have that.

Teslas have a centralized heat/coolant system (the Superbottle) that minimizes parts and lead length and optimizes efficiency. Less things that can go wrong.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

My new favorite mineral is tinnunculite which forms when falcon poo reacts with the gases from a burning coal mine. Yeah.
