On Thursday evening, Tesla CEO Elon Musk is taking the stage to unveil the Model Y, an all-electric compact SUV and the automaker’s fifth vehicle since its founding in 2003. And unless you are one of the lucky few to score an invite to the exclusive event, chances are you’re like us, stuck at home and wondering how to watch the party. Well, we’ve got you covered.

Like past Tesla events, a live stream will be available on Tesla’s website, now also available in the YouTube embed at the top of this post. There doesn’t seem to be an alternative official stream. The event will be at 8PM PT (11PM ET). So as usual with Tesla events, it’s going to be a late night for the company’s fans on the East Coast.
Update, 8:11 PM ET: Tesla says it’s starting 15 min late:
Model Y unveil will begin shortly – we’ll start around 8:15pm PDT!— Tesla (@Tesla) March 15, 2019
The Model Y is supposed to begin production in late 2020. The vehicle will share around 75 percent of its components with the Model 3 sedan. That should help the crossover make it into production quicker and cost less money to develop. By September 2020, Tesla said it hopes to build 2,000 Model Ys per week.
