Mitsubishi electric car trunk mounted power pack

The upper image (taken at a new car show) is the electric power pack which is under the rear trunk floor of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV all electric car.

The sticker price is $34,000.00 - which seems way too much for a metal box on wheels which is equal in size, complexity, and weight to about 8 residential clothes washers - which would sell for not more than $8k.

Why are cars so expensive by the pound?
