As more and more EVs hit the road and replace gas car sales, dealerships will have to reckon with reduced service visits made by EV owners (and thus reduced revenues). Plus, less moving parts = less stuff that will break down needing repairs.

For example, the Bolt's after-sales revenue is expected to be 60% less compared to a similar traditional ICE'er.

"This year, the consulting firm UBS Research tore down two similar-sized hatchbacks, a Chevrolet Bolt and a VW Golf. UBS counted 24 moving parts in the Bolt, compared with 149 in the Golf.

UBS analysts estimate that aftersales revenue for the Bolt, for such things as replacement parts, will be 60 percent less — about $400 a year — than such revenue for a traditional car."
