This could be a large part of it. If they sell 200,000 normal sized fridges and 2,000 counter depth fridges I can totally see why the non-standard version would cost more. Their economy of scale is shot so it could legitimately cost them more to make the non-standard version. And even if it didn't, they still may be in a position to charge more: if you don't want to pay the premium you can always buy their cheaper normal sized fridge, so they may not lose too much sales with the higher price.
