When does model year in VIN change to next year?

If I remember correctly from the most recent model year change, it was 11/1/2021. MY's built in Oct vs Nov were the same other than the VIN. All MY with 2022 start with 7 as first digit, it was 5 before as in mine. More features were added in Jan 2022 so some of early 2022 MY did not have them.
Adding (or more likely, deleting) features has no relation to model year in the world of Tesla..... They just do it whenever it strikes them (or 'data indicates low usage' :cool: )...
