    Tesla recently registered just 3 new VINs for the Model 3. and it appears that they have over 10k unused VINs. Just trying to understand why a company making thousands of cars per week, would need to register just 3 VINs.

    VIN is a worldwide system. They may be for a region where the car is not available yet,

    They point out that there was a previous 19 VINs for Europe, but make no statement about the last 3 being special. I guess I would like to see these VIN numbers for my self, but if there was something special about them, I expect they would have said.
