The mystery over when we’ll first see Tesla’s Model Y has been settled. Elon Musk, as he tends to do, responded to a follower asking him when the Model Y will be unveiled. Musk flatly responded: March 15.

Soon after, Musk backtracked on his comments, stating “I just made that up, because the Ides of March sounded good.” But after that, he then backtracked on his backtracking and stated the March 15 date falls right in the middle of when he expects to unveil the Model Y, which would be anytime from late in 2018 to the middle of 2019, so it’s a real possible date to expect the Model Y announcement.

So when will the Model Y be unveiled? Musk is known for revealing things haphazardly on Twitter. Some dates end up being correct while others are revised as time passes. Take the March 15 date as a tentative announcement date that is subject to change.

What we do know is that the Model Y will be unveiled some time in 2019. That fits the timeframe Tesla has in mind for the its electric CUV. Musk revealed earlier this year that the Model Y will enter production in 2020 and will bring with it a “manufacturing revolution.”

Showing it off to investors and potential customers ahead of time is a great way to create hype around the car. Musk used the same masterful tactic with the Model 3, unveiling it over a year before it started being delivered to customers. Expect the same for the Model Y.
