It's happening! Tesla will finally be unveiling its Model Y this afternoon, and this is how you can watch all the action.

It'll be interesting to see if this unveiling will be just as eventful.
Earlier this week Elon Musk finally announced the launch day of the Model Y - March 14.
This electronic SUV has been a long time coming, as has the name. Perhaps it was naive of me to hope that Musk wouldn't lean into the naming convention that he's been building towards for years. And yet here we are.
