Are Hybrid electronics in Cars more complex that IPhone?

I agree that level of complexity is increasing in hybrid cars day by day. But I could not imagine why it would overwhelmed engineering. Relatively speaking one CBD could be more or less complex than others. But the maturity of knowledge (and automated tools) to handle or measure such complexity (in electronics) is also increasing.

A case in point --> Do you think Hybrid electronics in Cars are more complex that IPhone?

An individual system within the hybrid may not be more complex than an iPhone, but there are a great number of systems that have to be interoperable. That gets very complex.

Here are some of the top-paying jobs available to engineers as they grow in their careers.
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers. 
Stratasys will be exhibiting two groundbreaking large-scale additive manufacturing technologies, as well as other new products, next month at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago.
Ford Motor Co. announced plans last week to join an ever-growing number of automakers who intend to produce fully autonomous vehicles in the next five years.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
