Thank you!

When silicon is made, its never all the same wafer to wafer.
some chips run faster than other,

so the chips are measured, and put into banks of speed.

hence the different speed grades.

Automotive parts ,like industrial parts are specified over a wider temperature range,

Automotive parts also tend to have a longer "available until" to them, but that is very much down to Xilinx, and without a big order from you , NDA et all , can not be relied upon.

all the details of the difference , in the data sheets ..

@ldm_gk 

Automotive grade typically run at slower top speeds, but 'may' be a bit more rugged.

Hope that Helps
If so, Please mark as solution accepted. Kudos also welcomed.
