The Tesla VIN decoder information presented on this page has been adapted from the United States Department of Transportation NHTSA Product Information Catalog and Vehicle Listing (vPIC) system, as well as from a variety of Tesla resources and crowdsourced information across the web. The information provided on this page is intended to serve as basic Tesla Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) decoding, as well as source data from the Manufacturer Information Database (MID), Manufacturer Equipment Plant Identification, and associated data. This information is an aggregate of the publicly available data and is to be used for general informational purposes only. If you notice any errors in our data and Tesla VIN decoding presentation, please contact us with your suggested changes with an included source for the information provided.
Can you use our Tesla VIN decoder to get battery size? Yes, you can! But it won’t give you the specific sub-model data (for example, Model S Performance, or Model Y Long Range). This is because Tesla only has this data in their VIN database—you can’t get it from the VIN sequence alone (unless you’re Tesla, of course).
However, you can use the VIN decoder to determine the year and broad model type (2016 Model S, etc.) and then you can narrow down the battery options by looking at photos, badging, or other aspects of the vehicle (including the software screen, if you have access to that).
Our Tesla Model 3 VIN decoder will give results for all trim levels of Model 3 (Standard Range, SR+, Mid Range, Long Range AWD/RWD, and also Performance). It will show the year and other various specs that you may find helpful when you’re looking to decode a Tesla Model 3 VIN.
