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.

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.

There are two very similar specced Ev6 EX-trim AWD with 360 camera on the ad site now. One of them has this VIN:

KBAC381CPN5015820 the other KNAC381CPN5008285

European with a B instead of A in the second position. No idea what it means.

Old thread but came across this while trying to decode my VIN.

Mine starts with KNDC, for what it's worth. Manufactured in Jan-22.

The original US VIN decoder that I had posted in my previous message in this thread was superseded this updated one published on the NHTSA website. Go to page 2 of the PDF document for the details.

I also updated my previous message so people wouldn't use the old US VIN decoder.
