Silly question - model year

So I picked up my new M3LR on 19th December. It is the refreshed model. Does that make it a 2021 model?

I can't seem to find a definitive answer, apart from the year of registration i.e. 2020.

I think it is down on my insurance as a 2020 model because of the year/reg plate.

You can tell definitively from the model year digit in your vin , but if you have heatpump etc you've got a 2021 model year car.

It's very unlikely to be 2020 model year if new and delivered in December.

Because they do things different in America, it gets a bit confusing.

So although its a 2021 Tesla Model, its still a 2020 uk registration, as per your number plate.

Thats half the reason I'm not letting them allocate me one until March, so it'll be a 2021 model and a 2021 reg and its just easier for me to explain.
