Here you go:

Eg try this one: KNDC3DLC0N5000494
Thanks for the link.

I tried the example you gave me and it worked perfectly showing all the details for that car.

Unfortunately, it throws up some errors with the EV6 VIN, showing only very basic information. Perhaps it isn’t set to recognise UK cars.

Or maybe the database needs some time to update.

US VIN is not the same as European VIN for sure. A table was posted at this forum a while ago (I just can't find it now. Not easy to search for) and what the numbers and letters meant in that one cannot relate to "ours" here in Europe. If I recall I would be receiving an AWD and not RWD according to the number.

The VIN decoder linked to here will give me errors aswell.

If you feel like playing with European (Both Norwegian and cars imported from other European countries), you can look at these cars:


Yup, Norwegian. But pictures, VIN and some of the text should be easy to grok for everyone.

1-4: Looking a little at the Vin numbers it always start with KNAC.

5: Then 3 or 4 which has to be the trim level. 3 is the Exclusive here and 4 is the GT-Line. GT-Line here in Norway is the S in the UK at least.

6-7: The next two seems to always be 81.

8: And then it's a A. B or C. A seems to be RWD, 77KWh battery, B may be RWD 58KWh and C AWD 77KWh.

9: F or P, and no idea. May be where it's sold.F being here up north and P somewhere else. It's not heat pump or not.

10: Not seen any other than N.

11: Always 5.

12-17: Serial number. I wonder if this is worldwide or per area. Lowest I¨ve seen is in the 5xxx series which has been both customer cars, imports and demos. Highest so far is the VIN for our car (Crossing my fingers, still not delivered to us), 21xxx.

Possibly the GT that was used for the launch videos of the FE?

I used the vindecoderz.com to check a Skoda and it found a Kodiaq but the car is an Enyaq. Not very trustworthy.

Checked a KNAC vin and not much info from it. Nothing abouit battery nor AWD/RWD.

VIN numbers in Europe usually have code regarding the paint reference, and this is what body shops use to get the exact colour code for paint matching.
