Tesla S vs BYD e6

So there's full-on 4-door electric vehicle being manufactured by BYD, their e6. It was exhibited at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show.  Says here they've been building them for domestic (China) sale for about two years now.

The obvious question follows: what's the price? Ooo, this is not good. A Wikipedia posting indicates that it'll be $40,000. Ya know, a Tesla S is "only" $49,900.  I think I'll keep saving my pennies and get a Tesla. It won't be avaiable until 2014, but I can wait.
