Not odd at all.
For one, the 60 kWh version is not ready; judging by their ongoing discussions who will supply the battery, end of 2019 is something of an optimistic guess.
Second, it will surely be more expensive than the 40 kwh model when they are sold concurrently. I'll guess an easy $5k price difference, and perhaps as much as $7.5k if they use a better quality battery and include a TMS
