    The timing is right for pre-production Beta cars for testing and for the upcoming part three reveal at the end of March.

    My prediction is, they will build three Model 3s trim levels for the reveal in March. A base model RWD all metal roof with a cloth interior. A mid trim model with dual motors, cloth interior and all glass roof. A top trim model with the larger battery pack, dual motors, pano or all glass roof and leather interior. All three trim levels will have the option for enhanced and/or full auotopilot, although I think it makes sense that the base model will not come with anything other than the automatic emergency braking system to keep the $35,000 base price from creeping up. Also, the entire trim line will have HUD with augmented reality.

    They may hint at the future model Y at the end of the reveal but, I dont think they want to go there yet.

    I would love to agree with you too @Paul Spiers!
    Except that I think that Elon won't mention Model Y. If he does, it's to say it will be at least 2 years before there will be further news, to quell rumours.

    Mid trim model with 70kWh battery pack for me...
