    What stands out to me:
    1) These vehicles are slow
    2) These vehicles get terrible gas mileage
    3) The Model X at a starting price of $59,900 with microfiber seats and no AWD will be kind of pricey

    Those options aren't available in the US (yet). I guess Audi thinks Americans don't like powerful engines on their rides!

    hmm I didn't realize that. but maybe we should include them in the chart anyway since the X is not only for the US market.......
