Yes, there are posts on how to decode the VIN, so a search should find that.

If I remember correctly, the numbering starts at 101 so by subtractiing that from the appropriate part of the VIN gives the nth Vmax made that year, this was discussed very recently.

(I'm responding on a smart phone otherwise I'd do the search, much easier to do on a 'puter)

In general terms that is the case but not always - to be sure you would need to look up the relevant frame number to establish the start number of that particular range.
