Tow bar now an factory option but more expensive than retrofit

In the UK, the tow option is now an option at order time. but its more expensive than the current way which is to have it added to the car after delivery.

Does anybody know if the spec is different (I can't see anything), whether they're changing the rear to you can't retrofit in future or offer an explanantion why the factory/order time option might be more expensive than the retrofit?

I may be answering my own question, but in the US its the other way, $1000 factory order, $1300 afterwards, in Holland they're the same price, so maybe the UK is the only place where its more expensive when you order the car?
