Having some trouble with the attachments. How can you tell. Are they just DOT issued numbers or are these delivered to customer numbers.
They are issued by the DOT at Tesla's request. It's been explained to me that from a regulatory standpoint there isn't really any constraint on Tesla from requesting a huge batch far past near-term expected usage, however that's not what Tesla has been doing. Their requests have been fairly inline with usage, so assuming that going forward is reasonable.
