Elon Musk views the new Tesla Model Y at its unveiling

Here's where to watch Tesla's live announcement: the live stream will be available on Tesla's website, either directly on the main page, or through the Events & Presentations section on the Investor Relations page.

The company broke ground on the Shanghai factory in January and its CEO Elon Musk has said the firm aims to finish initial construction this summer and start production of the Model 3 towards the end of the year.

It wasn't until last month that Tesla announced it would take orders for the $35,000 version, which has a shorter range.

With that big of trivia out of the way, the Model Y is expected to be largely based on the Model 3.

Musk said more detailed specs and pricing will be available at the Thursday reveal event.

Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih said on Sunday that the production-curbing agreement would likely last until at least June. Opec forecasts non-member producers to boost output in 2019 by 2.24 million bpd, 60,000 bpd more than expected previously.

Tesla has published a final teaser of the upcoming Model Y before the vehicle premieres at 8pm PDT / 11pm EST. Like the Model X, there also appears to be a small spoiler.

The Model Y is about 10 percent larger than the Model 3.

Tesla has previously revealed only shaded computer renderings of the Model Y.

Tesla will tonight unveil its attempt to break into the fast-growing "crossover" vehicle segment, revealing the highly anticipated Model Y. It has a sleek tapered front-end with the larger rear and height of a compact crossover/SUV. So despite Elon tweeting the Model Y would have them, yeah, no.

Its shares fell more than 5 per cent on the day news of its imports being suspended first broke and rose 3 per cent later after it said the issue had been resolved.
