For those that won’t be part of the lucky 650 lottery-drawn people that will have the opportunity to witness the Model 3 unveiling on March 31st, Tesla will be offering a livestream of the event beginning at 8:30pm Pacific that same day.

Attendees of what Tesla describes as an intimate event will likely have a far different experience than the estimated 5,000 plus people that attended the Model X launch event last year. For one, Tesla has set the expectation that there will be a one and a half hours between the 7pm event start time and the livestream scheduled for 8:30pm.
This comes after attendees of the Model X launch event were reportedly unhappy of Elon Musk’s delay in taking the stage. One customer in particular was so aggravated by how the event was managed, he personally called out Elon Musk in an open letter. Elon responded by canceling the man’s Model X reservation.

The level of excitement in the air ahead of Tesla’s reveal of the highly anticipated mass market vehicle is at an all time high. Though there’s still a couple of weeks before the finer details of the Model 3 emerge, we know so far that the vehicle will be similar in size as the Audi A4, have over 200 miles of range, and cost $35,000 before incentives. Tesla will also open up Model 3 online reservations that evening as the unveil event begins.
