Tesla is finally having its Part 3 reveal of the Tesla Model 3 tonight, when its first 30 production vehicles are given to early buyers who put down deposits, including employees. You can watch an unofficial live stream above from Twitch or see the official link and other live streams below. (One of the live streams below is being filmed by someone in the audience.) Today we will see the first 30 Model 3 production models, and we’ll finally get a lot of questions answered, such as what the interior will look like, what type of range the Model 3 will have, and more.
Tonight’s live stream will be shown on Tesla.com’s official stream here or check out the videos below from people attending. The event will live stream will start at 8:45 p.m. Pacific, which is 11:45 p.m. Eastern. The event itself will then start 15 minutes later. (See photos of the Model 3 from the event here.)

This video, below, has already started but is slightly behind the official Tesla stream:
And here’s another video from an audience member. It’s just slightly ahead of the official Tesla stream:
And here’s a live stream from the Model 3 Owners Club:
Tesla fans and customers got excited earlier today, because it looks like some information changed on customers’ “My Tesla” page, including the addition of a manage button.
This is the company’s most affordable car yet. It’s an electric car with self-driving hardware, a range of at least 215 miles, and a starting price of $35,000. More longer-range batteries will likely also be available, for an extra cost.
In the first unveiling in 2016, Musk said that the Model 3s will come with a Supercharger charging network, but he recently shared that a rumored solar roof wasn’t happening.
Fans and customers are waiting for a lot of news about the car’s specs, including:
- Battery packs and ranges – We’ve heard rumors that the Model 3 will have two battery sizes.
- Configurations – Musk has said that the configurations for the Model 3 will be simple, likely just color and wheel options. But when will the configurator be live?
- Autopilot – Musk has said full autonomous cars won’t be available until early 2019. So what will the options be for the Model 3?
- Interior – No one knows what the interior looks like yet — at least not for certain. Musk has said it will be “minimalist.” We should get the big reveal tonight.
So far, we know a little bit about what to expect. Here’s the first production model in black:
