Tesla Registers Nearly 14,000 New Model 3 VINs

OCT 25 2018 BY MARK KANE 8

Almost all new VINs since a week ago are for RWD.

Tesla doesn’t slow down after superior Q3 results and is moving right ahead by registering thousands more VINs for further Model 3s.

The latest batch is 13,629 and almost all seem to be rear-wheel drive Mid Range versions.

That brings new registrations for October so far to 51,883, including only 20,355 for all-wheel drive (less than 40%).

The total number of registrations stands now at 169,791 (over 100,000 RWD and over 65,000 AWD).

It seems that Tesla is now focusing more on the more affordable Mid Range versions, which is possible because it achieved profitability and scale. Further increase in production will be easier because Mid Range versions require only one drive unit, compared to the popular dual-drive unit AWD in Q3, and less battery cells.

VIN Registration gives us lot of buzz. Nice to see the registration of midrange model as many who could not afford the long range can buy soon and enjoy the drive.

Hope the standard range also comes sooner.

Great, tesla


This is a nice chart. It clearly shows the focus between RWD and AWD.


Impressive. But is it really news every single time Tesla registers new VINs?

It is everytime they beat its own records, 14.000+ on a single batch is more than twice as big as the previous record on ~6.000 VINs before.

I’m pretty sure they already had batches larger than 6,000?…

Doesn’t really matter though whether it’s one large batch or several smaller ones in short succession.

I find it interesting to be informed of larger registrations. It gives us an idea what Tesla is up to.

Standard Range coming soon
