It’s only been a week since Tesla officially revealed the Model X crossover and the automaker is already in the news again. Tesla is reportedly working on a smaller crossover and CEO Elon Musk might have just revealed its name on Twitter. A few days ago Elon Musk posted on Twitter that the company is working on two new models, the already confirmed Model 3 and another model called the Model Y. But then he quickly deleted the tweet.

It doesn’t look like Elon Musk meant to reveal the name, since the Twitter post was immediately taken down. It also wasn’t a tweet that he started, since Elon Musk reportedly responded to a follower who asked about the design of the upcoming Model 3 and if it would feature the same Falcon wing doors as Model X. “There will be a Model 3 and a Model Y. One of the two will,” Musk tweeted.

The tweet was quickly deleted, but not before the Tech Insider captured a screen shot of the discussion. The Model Y will likely be a crossover based on the upcoming Model 3 sedan. There’s no date yet when we can expect to even see the Model Y, but we do know that the Model 3 is going to debut in the spring.
