Well, how much is an ICE powertrain? It's certainly less than $10k on something like a FWD sedan.

Of course, the major expense in an EV is the battery, at something like $145 per installed kWh. Nissan's "low" range Leaf would then have a $6,000 battery. Add motors, controllers, chargers, etc... don't know what the final cost would be.
