    Hello,

    Does anyone know how to get the invitation for the Model 3 reveal event from Tesla?

    How were they provided last time for the Model X event?

    Cheers!!!

    Well, there were invitations for 2 given out with the Tesla referral program.

    As pointed out by @S'toon , a sure way to get one is being a successful referrer.

    If you are an owner or reservation holder, you can e-mail and ask whether you may be included.

    If my wife bails on going, I might be selling a ticket. I got 2 through the referral program.

    Lets hope that invitations go out earlier than 10 days before the event so that people who do not live within 100 miles of Fremont can actually make plans ahead of time. I think my X invite arrived in my email 7 days before the event. I was happy to be invited, but it was no way possible to expect that people have that kind of flexibility.

    Bjørn Nyland has already indicated that unfortunately, the Tesla Motors event invites are not transferable. He has four to the Gigafactory opening. But so far has been told he cannot just auction off or give away the two that would not be used by his wife and he. Now, I do know that all attendees need not arrive together... I was the 'plus one' for a forum member at the Tesla 'D' Event, and he just left word at the desk that I was coming after him when he arrived.

    I would assume these will be given out to share holders randomly but not sure. When do you guys think they will be sent out?

    Being a Sig X reservation holder got me invites to the D and X reveal events. I cancelled the X so I'm not sure if I'll get an invite to the 3.

    I would not be surprised if the reveal at the end of March is not an event, but just a press release of some sort. They've hinted at this being just the first sneak peek at the design rather than a full prototype reveal. Perhaps the launch event comes a few months later when they are ready to give more details.

    On the other hand if they are going to start taking orders it would seem that they would have something more and perhaps we see the outside of the vehicle only and they keep the interior a secret. In any event, its pretty exciting to finally get some official information about the car from Tesla. I was growing tired of all the speculation and fake image leak discussions.

    If it is an event, I would love to attend, and if not, I'll definitely be visiting a service center to place my deposit as soon as they are accepting them.

    Nah. It was so-called 'journalists' who decided to deaden the fires of hope, along with the League of Lowered Expectations who gave those prognostications of doom, gloom, and general 'Meh.' What Tesla Motors said was, "Wait and see. We aren't going to talk about it now."

    This is what Tesla Motors has been striving toward since 2003. If the reveal of the Model ≡ doesn't warrant a full fledged event, then quite a few people deserve to be seriously fired. Like, yesterday... If not the day, or year, before.

    But they aren't taking orders. Not even pre-orders. They are just taking reservations/deposits to get you in a line to place an order at some point in the future.

    In the referral program, I won two tickets to the reveal event. I am going to be pretty disappointed if I fly to Hawthorne on a last-minute airfare to be greeted with a press release. I haven't received an invite yet and flights to LA are starting to get expensive for the end of the month.

    The "Enter to win" reminds me of what has happened to Comic-Con. Everyone could attend in the early years but as the popularity increased, passes are now limited.

    But unlike Comic-Con, Model 3 won't be sold out in an hour. Enjoy reserving your Model 3 on March 31st!

    Well... It might take a whole 24 hours for the Tesla Model ≡ to 'sell out' two years worth of Production by securing 250,000 Reservations.

    ;-)
