Reading this article induced psychosis, and i literally was unable to remain quiet about it.

This comparison is asinined. The Model X stats are not even correct.
-The price in china, better be what it costs someone in china to purchase and have it imported. Because the price tag out the door (before tariff and such) is $79,500 for the Model X 75D.
-The seat configuration is an option, and can have 5, 6 or 7 seats. They listed 5, rather than indicating 5-7 depending on the option you choose.
-Why did they list the battery type as Lithium-Ion? Thats literally just wrong. Their battery chemistry is much more complex than that. Yet they list it as Li-Ion to seem inferior to the chinese brand.
-Charging time is listed as 4.5 hours? So they decided to manufacture a competitive aspect by completely disregarding the supercharging time? Less than 1 hour? Interesting propaganda techniques.
Perhaps theres another interesting aspect here, that they are comparing a brand new car to be released this year, with a 2 year old Model X. Why are you comparing a 2018 brand new model car, with a 2 year old model of an existing car? Should i make a new cell phone, and compare it with the iPhone 6? Quite an interesting comparison if you ask me. Bloomburg? More like Blowburg.
Anyone else see any BS i didnt catch?
