Does this statement mean that certain other vehicles (not just rail or aircraft, but also some other road vehicles) are not included?

Only cars and light trucks have model years.

    In the USA, the Model Year for cars and light trucks has legal implications, because the regulations a new vehicle must be designed and built to meet refer to model years.

    Outside of this, manufacturers are free to apply model years as they wish, to whatever they wish. In Europe some car manufacturers (e.g. Ford and Vauxhall/Opel) follow the US example (although it has no legal meaning) and apply new model years each year, while others never refer to model years (e.g. Renault). Some manufacturers of completely different items may use model years to help distinguish generations, my mobile phone for instance is the 2017 model, and is different from the 2016 model with the same model name.

    Don't know what you want but EVERY VEHICLE HAS A VIN, a make, a model, a year of manufacture because every manufacturer has to give an Identification to that unit.  It is also their count...as to how many of one type were produced(for accounting purposes)  Also helps in the parts department when you come in and say your farm tractor is broken. Make, model, year narrows down the parts book to one book for that unit covering several years as they do not change MUCH (but they do change)

    That applies to basically everything made.

    Whoever made the statement is ignorant of the facts.

    Motorcycles, bicycles, mopeds, motor homes, ships, sailboats, chainsaws, dildos all have serial numbers and patent numbers and model numbers on them. 

    A "rock" doesn't.  Unless it is a fake rock made in a factory.  They can make Diamonds in a factory.  They are tiny but they have also got markings on them to say who made them.  The Bible comes in several publications over the years, meaning several translations of the same holy word.(which means several variations because a word was added or left out from the original script.  It is so far from the original script they are 2 different books.)

    Nobody cares about your obsession with "model years" Robbie. Please go take your meds and leave Yahoo Answers alone.

    The statement suggests

    that additional types of vehicles are being discussed

    and that

    for the particular group of vehicle types being discussed

    only those two types "have model years".
