    Simplification of S/X production and the removal of sub assembly lines frees up staff and space for Model 3. Dropping the price of the 75kWh to nearly the same price as the outgoing 60kWh is also a come buy me temptation for Model 3 reservation owners with a bigger budget.

In other words Tesla sweetened the pie. Yes, people generally do not cross-shop the two, but they do look at one through the lens of the other and may not consider the supercharger-enabled effective range of the Model S.
