Tesla has registered 42,942 total VINs for Model 3 till date

According to a recent Twitter post by the @Model3VINs group which tracks Tesla Model 3 registrations, the total number of vehicle identification numbers (VINs) filed by Tesla for its Model 3 compact electric car to date has surpassed the 42,000 mark.

More specifically, the total VINs filed by Tesla Motors for the Model 3 has now reached 42,942; with the addition of a new batch of 3,661 VINs filed by the company for the electric car.

The @Model3VINs group has revealed that the filing of the latest batch of 3,661 Model 3 VINs by Tesla Motors has come within days of more than 5,000 new Model 3 registrations by the company.

With Tesla having recorded the highest Model 3 VINs one month back when it registered 28296 units of the electric car, the latest Model 3 VIN figures show that the company has recorded a more than 50% increase in the number of VINs for the vehicle.

The filing of more than 8,000 new Model 3 VINs by Tesla in the last few days is apparently in line with the estimates which Tesla CEO Elon Musk had outlined in a leaked email last week. Musk had said in the leaked email that the scheduled Model 3 production shutdown by Tesla in April will likely enable the company to achieve a production rate of 3,000-4,000 Model 3 units per week.
