Elon Musk says this is 'part 1' of the Tesla Model 3 reveal

Pre-order day has already started in Australia.


If you're ready for Tesla's $35,000 electric vehicle and have $1,000 ready to put down, then your day has dawned -- at least in Australia. Elon Musk tweeted a pic of the Model 3 pre-order line down under where it's already March 31st, while the rest of us get ready for the company's LA event tomorrow night at 11:30PM ET. Of course we'll be on hand for what he says is just "part 1 of the Model 3 unveil," with a part 2 scheduled for closer to its production in late 2017. In yet another tweet, Musk promised a follower we will "see the car very clearly, but some important elements will be added and some will evolve."

Update: Check out all the details from the Model 3 unveiling (like news that there were 115,000 pre-orders before any had even seen the car) right here.

What do you expect from Tesla's Model 3 event?

Update: Musk has tweeted yet again, stating that pre-orders will open at 7:30pm PT / 10:30pm ET tonight. Also, that you'll be limited to two per customer.
