Tesla was registering Model 3 VINs at a rate of 15,000 a week.

The number of Tesla Model 3 VINs registered almost hit 180,000 (179,851) a few days ago and as it turns out, 61,943 fall on October alone. That's more than in the first 11 months of production.

The pace of registrations of some 15,000 VINs a week on average is not sustainable in the long run as Tesla produces the Model 3 in the 5,000 per week range with plans to achieve 10,000 a week probably in 2019.

The VIN registration data gives us a glimpse on the proportion of all-wheel drive (dual motor) and rear-wheel drive (single motor) versions:

  • around 70,000 AWD (22,519 in October)
  • around 110,000 RWD (39,424 in October)
