Why do cooktops cost more than ranges?

Is this a case of product differentiation -- or is there some technical reason I'm missing? A cooktop seems to be a kitchen appliance that allows you to cook with pots and pans on a tabletop surface. A range seems to be a kitchen appliance that combines a cooktop with an oven below it. So.. why does it look like the combo appliance is generally cheaper than just a cooktop?
