Model 3 Serial number?

Model 3 Serial number?

Can anyone please give me an example of a real Model 3 serial number? I just ordered a Model 3 and it already has a number assigned to it. I was wondering if this is actually the serial number. It begins with an R. It is not as long as the Model S"s serial number. Thanks for the help.

Hmm. The “R” numbers were for reservations back before the Model 3 was released. I thought they were defunct.

If by serial number you mean VIN, here’s an example: 5YJ3E1EA2JFxxxxxx. The xxxxxx part would be 6 digits. That’s a 2018 VIN.

CharleyBC,
Thank you. Yes I meant VIN. So no they have not jet assigned a VIN to my order. The example you gave me is very similar to the Model S VIN. Thanks for your help.
