I was just reading this article from Ele
https://electrek.co/2020/09/24/tesla-sentry-mode-amazons-ring-usb-hub/

They quote what looks like a Ring marketing release as:
“The first compatible vehicles for Ring Car Connect are Tesla models 3, X, S, and Y.”​
I’m curious if most publications use this somewhat random ordering of models instead of the clearly subliminal order of:

The first compatible vehicles for Ring Car Connect are Tesla models S, 3, X, and Y.​

It seems like the S3XY order would be Tesla’s (OK maybe it’s mostly EM’s) preference.

During Battery Day one of Elon's jokes was that 'S, 3, X, Y' was a long set up for joke.

Would't the natural order be S, X, 3, Y (ordinal)? Or 3, Y, S, X (sales volume)?

I’d think that after this long of a setup for that joke that it would be extra gratifying to see the joke referenced more often. Every time I see the non-S3XY ordering I end up stopping to reorder in my head and giggle about the punchline ordering before continuing. So maybe the other orders are actually having even more of a subliminal effect on me than the joke order. Who knows. I just don’t see the joke order in print usually other than in articles that are specifically about the long setup of the joke.
