VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) is a number assigned by the automaker as a unique identifier of a car/model. The numbers are assigned based on an ISO 3779 – 1983 standard which allows for universal identification worldwide.
The number is composed of 3 parts:
WMI – international identifier of the automaker – It is based on 3 numbers/letters.
VDS – description of the model – It is based on 6 characters and gives the description of the model in a sequence selected by the manufacturer.
VIS – unique auto identifier – These are the last 8 characters (last 4 are usually numbers) and almost always include the year of production and the manufacturing plant.
