There's been a few examples which turned out to be very unreliable, so that's not "underrating". That's simple/basic feedback for a $10k part that tends to fail under basic driving.

Other than that... why bother developing transmissions when cars are going electric anyways? I'd say slap on the cheapest already developed automatic that's reliable and focus on electric/hybrid technologies. Keep manuals for people who like them; because they are proven reliable and take up little to no research funding.
