Tesla registers monster batch of 28k Model 3 VINs in 3 days, 20k for int’l markets



Tesla lately demonstrated what might be the most encouraging sign of this Model 3 ramp to date. From Friday to Sunday, Tesla registered a mammoth batch of over 28,000 Model 3 VIN registrations, over 20,000 of which were designated for international markets. With these latest batches of filings, Tesla’s total Model 3 registrations currently number 236,512.

The newest registrations were reported by Model 3 VIN tracking group @Model3VINs, which tracks Tesla’s filings for the electrical sedan. This newest batch also complements the over 14,800 Model 3 VINs that were registered from the week of January 6. That’s over 42,000 Model 3 VINs filed through the first two weeks of their first quarter . For perspective, the filings of the last few days are approximately equivalent to the registrations that Tesla filed for the automobile until early April 2018, over eight months after the electrical sedan entered generation.

The current batch of Model 3 VIN registrations come under Tesla’s ongoing push to deliver the electrical car to international markets like China and Europe, each of which represent a potentially profitable market for the car or truck. Tesla, for one, has noted that the “mid-sized premium sedan market in Europe is over twice as large as the same segment from the US” on its own Q3 2018 Update Letter. China, on the other hand, anticipates its electrical car market to enlarge this year, together with the country putting a revenue goal of two million new-energy vehicles in 2020, as noted by the Nikkei Asian Review.

Overallthese creature batches of VIN registrations bode well for Tesla’s intended ramp for your Model 3. With the automobile already saturating North America, and with the majority of remaining North American reservation holders probably holding out for the highly-anticipated, $35,000 Standard Range Model 3, bringing the electrical automobile to other nations is pivotal for Tesla’s functionality this first quarter.

This isn’t to say that everything will be simple for Tesla for the upcoming few months, however. If any, the electrical car maker still needs to overcome any challenges because it starts bringing the Model 3 into foreign territories. As of early January, reports indicate that Tesla is still looking to obtain homologation approval to sell the Model 3 in Europe. In a statement to this Los Angeles Times, the company stated that it had been working closely with regulators and that it expects to gain approval for the Model 3 after the holiday season. Nevertheless, Tesla is yet to confirm whether the electrical sedan has received the approval of European regulators consequently.

Back in China, Tesla is set to start its own Model 3 assault by bringing the vehicle’s top-tier variants — the Long Range AWD and Performance version — into the country. Both of these vehicles are anticipated to start off the Chinese EV market as the firm prepares to fabricate more affordable variants of this electric car in Gigafactory 3, which is now undergoing construction. During Gigafactory 3’s revolutionary occasion , Elon Musk stated that he anticipates the first locally made Model 3 to roll from the Shanghai facility towards the close of the year.

For now, sightings of Model 3 batches apparently intended for the global markets are reported by the Tesla community. Before this season, Tesla enthusiasts from the United States have shared images of trucks loaded with what appeared to become European-spec Model 3 heading towards a pier. Much more recently, Tesla community along with r/TeslaMotors member u/Nicoriquo shared images of a Model 3 fleet that allegedly arrived in Europe.
