Induction is, of course, electric. A glass electric cooktop with resistance coils beneath is just as easy to clean as a glass electric cooktop with an induction device beneath. It is not as precise, granted. It is very nearly the same in efficiency though, at least the research I found showed less than a 5% difference. An induction range is easily twice the price of an older technology electric range, both with glass cooktops and electric ovens. Convection ovens are significantly more efficient for both types of range.
