its not just about US either. people in asia (india/china/japan) will also prefer a petrol model. these guys are paying 100% tax on the car and don't give a cr4p about mileage.
i am sure the diesel one will follow after the petrol version.
you are wrong. people do give a crap about mileage - it is a status symbol now, people will love going around telling everyone their 200k BMW beats the prius in MPG and the M3 in 0-60. Take away the fuel efficiency and this car is nothing but a fancy paint job on an M3 - not worth 200K anymore, back to 100K value.
