Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted Sunday that the company will unveil its Model Y crossover SUV on March 14 at L.A. Design Studio, and that it would "cost about 10% more [than the Model 3] & have slightly less range for same battery."

The big picture: The announcement comes less than a week after Tesla said its long-awaited $35,000 Model 3 is available to order online. Musk said detailed specifications, price points and test rides will be available at the unveiling next week.

Why it matters, via Axios' Joann Muller: The Model Y would enter one of the most competitive segments in the market — compact crossover utilities. Musk implausibly aims to build one million copies at a yet-to-be-announced factory. That's more than Ford's wildly popular F-Series pickup, which isn't likely to be dethroned as America's best-selling vehicle anytime soon.

  • But the excitement over Tesla’s next model would surely help distract away from the company’s profit struggles.

Why it matters: Getting kids back to school is of paramount importance for children and families, especially low-income ones. But the administration isn’t doing much to make this safer or more feasible.

As the coronavirus poses risks and concerns for the youngest and oldest Americans, the generations in the middle are buckling under the increasing strain of having to take care of both.

Why it matters: People that make up the so-called sandwich generations are typically in their 30s, 40s and 50s, and in their prime working years. The increasing family and financial pressures on these workers means complications for employers, too.
