No they didn't. They said late Q3, which means October, except for a few cars. And if you think a few cars is a few thousand then 2016 is more realistic.
Model 3 vs Model X and 2015 vs 2016 vs 2017.
Model X design reveal sometime in 2015
Model X shows up in design center (online store) in July 2015
Model X gets built in Q3/Q4 2015 and delivered to some in 2015 and some in 2016
Model 3 design reveal March 2016
Model 3 production late 2017
Model 3 deliveries expected soon after production late 2017.
I know Tesla has been bad at meeting schedules in the past but this is going to march right along, something might slide a week or two across a quarter boundary but these things are going to happen relatively fast on the global time scale.
