I think it's just old-school marketing, trying to create customers for life. Whatever $$ is ceded in providing the ED service will be made back a few times over on subsequent sales.
One reason they don't lose a ton of money on this is that the number of ED's is miniscule compared to the overall number of cars they sell for U.S. delivery. cracka is right on target with his assessment.
