A bit harsh, the Chinese manufacturers are a lot better than they used to be, as are most countries now. Also because the west have shifted a lot of manufacturing to the far east its a bit sanctimonious of us to then blame them for making our things.
Compared to our dirty rubbish strewn streets Chinese cities are a lot cleaner so their population care a lot more than the west.
Point is, if they bring down the cost others will have to follow. VW did say their new matrix battery would be half the cost of current versions by 2023. Tesla will also be producing lower cost models in a year or so, chips availability dependent.
Its still good news
