    Per Musk "With same options, Model X is $5k more than an S due to greater size & body complexity. Sig Series is fully loaded, hence high price."

    I'm guessing he's talking about the base price of a production X vs. a production S.

    Right now:
    A fully loaded Model S P90D: $145,700
    A fully loaded Model X P90D: $144,950 (signature)

    Model S is more expensive than the Model X (yes, not apples to apples... but both include all available options, i.e. max price)

    Interesting. Then either the Sigs are getting a discount or some options are going to be cheaper. Maybe the $3,000 range upgrade is going to get thrown in? And "Next Generation" seats won't be applicable anymore, just a flat charge for leather?

    Model S Model X
    Base (70 kWh) $75,000 $80,000
    90 kWh $13,000 $10,000
    Performance $20,000 $20,000
    MC Paint $1,500 $1,500
    Larger Wheel Option $4,500 $4,500
    Leather $1,750 $1,500
    Carbon Fiber Décor $1,000 $1,000
    Autopilot $2,500 $2,500
    Premium Interior $3,000 $3,000
    Smart Air Suspension $2,500 $2,500
    Upgraded Sound $2,500 $2,500
    3rd Row Seats $3,000 $3,000
    $130,250 $132,000

    Sigs getting a discount would be a (welcome) departure from the Model S days

    My spreadsheet to see if there is a premium for a Signature version of the X (vs general production)
    OR for the X over the S.
    Not much difference.

    Yeah, I did a bit of tinkering too, but without knowing Production pricing, it's hard to be sure of anything. I'd really rather not have a P90D (mainly for range concerns), but if I HAVE to, the price seems decent.

    As stated well above in the spread sheets, Elon stating that the base X is $5000 more than the base S is not an apple to apples comparison. For an equivalent S 70D, you would still need to add the $3000 rear seat option and $1500 panoramic glass roof to equal that of a baseline X that has (I believe) standard 3rd row and panoramic windshield. From what I can tell, the baseline X is $500 more.

    The base X will not have 3rd row seats. And one can make the case that an openable sunroof (like the Panoramic roof in the S) is not directly comparable to the X windshield and skylights since they are fixed.
