China can now make a good EV

One of the things I argue about concerning EVs is that the USA had better keep the lead in manufacturing or pretty soon we'll all be driving Chinese cars. Traditional car makers don't care, they want to keep the cash rolling in as long as possible TODAY even if they can't see the new market tomorrow.

It's long been assumed that Chinese products were poorly made, especially complex products like  automobiles. We also thought that of South Korean automobiles, too, but now look at Hyundai and Kia.

The following review from a YouTube channel I subscribe to shows a new EV from MG. Note how much the reviewer raves over the fit & finish of the car. At the very end we discover it's made in China, for import as a classic British brand (MG).

US car makers better get on the EV bandwagon, or Shanghai will be getting your money the next time you buy a car...
