Vanity Plates?

Hey folks,
I'm a first-time poster, but a long-time lurker.

I just ordered vanity plates for my Sig and thought I'd start a thread to see what other folks have gotten.
After much deliberation, I got "HC FREE" (California).

I've never had vanity plates before, but as an early adopter, I'm voting with my dollar (ok, many dollars). I want to spread the word for Tesla and electric cars in general, and I figure a vanity plate is a good way to introduce the driving public to an option they may not be aware of. "Hey, that there Aston-Martin is hydrocarbon free! - oh wait, what's a Tesla?"

PS: I tried to get "AC 4 ME" but that became unavailable while I was in the process of checking out. If whoever got that is on this forum, you would have missed out if you were a minute slower ;)

Reserved Z3RO GAS in California.


I ordered mine last spring in anticipation for my Model S arrival next week!


I don't know if this is "just me" or something to consider. I live in San Francisco which has crowded streets and people and bikes everywhere. I also spend time in the Malibu area.

My vanity plates were a bad idea in SF, but no issue in Southern California. Specifically, the car already gets attention, but my plates included the work TESLA and increased the "hey look, there's a Tesla" comments. Not everyone (read street people or bike messengers) like folks who can afford these cars.

Having been around a while, I could see the day coming where there would be an ugly scene; not in Socal, but in SF. I and friends have driven expensive cars and had bad experiences.

What did I do? Traded the vanity plate for a "save the whales" plate that has a blue which matches my car. The attention has dipped considerably and I am now leaving my pistol in the safe and returned almost to anonymity.

NIKOLA3 to honor Nikola Tesla.

I just ordered "2CHARGE" from California DMV today.

My California Model S plates are EVS4ALL.

Come say hi if you see me in the Bay Area!

mine says.... TSLA LUV

Reserved AMP3DUP some time ago in CA

Does anyone know what this means?


you only live once so f#$% it

:) Prove it. Opinions Differ. PIOD

I got "CHRG IIT". I found all other ways to spell it gone in California. Cool none the less

Just received notice today that my plate has arrived at the CA DMV.




And if you had a little 2-seater German EV you could have been a SMRT ALEKTRK.

"CHARGED" - Florida. Appropriate for an MSP not just because it's electric ;)

PEV4EVER, ordered in CA. Waiting for it to arrive...

"85 KWH" :)

Never got vanity plates before but the plates they issued me were so bad that I had to change them. Today I ordered:



In the bay area. Honk at me, I'll honk back.

Just got my notice of approval from Oregon - NIKOLA.

Also got my silver plate holders from Tesla Service - underneath NIKOLA the holder says TESLA.


Not the most creative but expresses my feelings for Tesla :-)
Even while they have yet to respond to my cracked windshield :-(

One more try.

Not the most creative plate but expresses my feelings for Tesla despite a cracked windshield that has yet to be fixed.

Just ordered HZ SO GUD

Okay here's a simple one that shouldn't need too much explanation, but is fitting for the car. It just popped in my head just now...

[ S OME ]

It's a model S, that is awesome...
Haven't seen that one yet.

I relented and just picked up:


What the heck.


And my license plate frame says
