I don't think this is predominantly a cost issue. Of course, very thin lines would require a very high-resolution raster display to look good and artefact-free. But take a look at the 'RPM-segmented-circle' in the ignition vid: Replacing those solid blocks/segments with thin vertical or horizontal lines (like the airspeed or altitude tape gauges on an a/c HUD) would be a relatively simple software change - provided the display panel is actually of a raster type.
