Vanity plate ideas. Need your feedback.

Killing time until my MS85 arrives in September, so trying to decide on a vanity plate and would welcome suggestions, comments, votes, etc.

CAR 2.0

Checkout There's a huge thread on this already...

Check out this thread over at TMC for more ideas...

olanmills | 07. August 2013

I like CAR 2.0 or AUTO 2.0. I haven't heard of that idea for a license plate before.

avirubin | 07. August 2013

My Tesla license is PLUGDIN in Maryland. I saw NO GAS on a Tesla in Maryland the other day.

Xerogas | 07. August 2013

XEROGAS in taken in CA. You have one guess as to who grabbed it.

Which reminds me, how does one track the progress of vanity plates in CA? Does the DMV have a web page that lets you know when it will be delivered?

howardb33 | 07. August 2013

in ohio I am: PLUG N GO

RED P85+ (wishing had parking sensors)


Colasec | 07. August 2013

@Xerogas - how long have you been waiting?

I ordered mine (EVLUTIN) on June 16th and haven't heard a thing. I keep booking appointments at the DMV and canceling them. :)

celtrog | 07. August 2013

I wanted FK OPEC but didn't think the DMV would
Ok it....
FOPEC was also a choice.......
Good luck

In Arizona, I have KWTPWR. Followers have their choice of interpretation: Quiet Power or Kilowatt Power.

thompsonshearth | 07. August 2013


Was thinking about WHTESLA before WKDFAST.

AmpedRealtor | 07. August 2013

I think putting TESLA or anything alluding to the car's brand is a waste of valuable space when the word TESLA is right above the plate and can also be included in the plate frame. Having only seven characters, what to do? This takes me back to my old DOS days when files could only have 8 characters. Boy, we really had to think hard back then... :)

NomoDinos | 07. August 2013

PLUG U2 (if you're aggressive)
NoMoPmp (unfortunately can be read as "pimp", though)
NoMoICE (you can see the trend here...)

NICE | 07. August 2013

You know that anyone who knows of any good available combinations wouldn't post it until they get their plates right? Just saying.

emoflash | 07. August 2013

I went with FLASDRV but I really liked 121GWAT

erici | 07. August 2013


"In Arizona, I have KWTPWR. Followers have their choice of interpretation: Quiet Power or Kilowatt Power."

That is a lot better than WATTPWR, which could get you killed and thrown in a ditch in some areas :-)

WATTBOY -- same issue.

Xerogas | 07. August 2013


I think EVLUTIN was one of my suggestions, thanks for using it!

I ordered in the first week of May, and not a peep from the DMV since then (other than them cashing my check)

GoodReason | 07. August 2013

ALL TORQ works well for speakers of Australian English, since torque and talk sound kind of similar here.

SWTCHD ON would also be good in Australia. Don't know if other people use that phrase to describe a smart cookie, but we do.

RZitrin1 | 07. August 2013

Do what I did - honor Nikola Tesla. My plate reads WRDNCF 2, named for the second coming of his Long Island laboratory. But you could go with, e.g.,

Niks pgn - for pigeon. Tesla (a nut bar) was in love with them.

Coil rdx - Tesla coil redux

Nks foly - folly was also his crazy idea that we would someday have wireless telephones. What a nut!


Colasec | 08. August 2013

@Xerogas Yep, it was - thank you! I love it, for three reasons: because I do truly think that the Model S represents a big step in the evolution of motorized transport, because I like the "EV" part - "EV-luting" instead of "polluting" lol - and because for quite a few years I was planning to be an evolutionary biologist. I've always wanted to put one of those Darwin fish on my car, but was too scared that someone would do something malicious like key it in response.

lissalovestesla | 08. August 2013

I got 4GETOIL up here in Canada... Slightly ironic considering I live in an oil producing part of the province....

thranx | 08. August 2013

If I didn't have a favorite already (transferring from an existing car), I'd recommend this one:

My West Virginia Plate is,,,S CAR GO...

dougarcher26 | 08. August 2013

I grabbed


from CA DMV

Help me decide which to use on my Model S...

AmpedRealtor | 08. August 2013

@ NICE - Maybe if you live in California, I don't mind sharing ideas from Arizona because I don't think they are shipping a whole lot of them this way.

Jamon | 08. August 2013

My all-time favorite is WTFRUNK

Wooly | 08. August 2013

I've got "GET AMPT" in California.

Btrflyl8e | 08. August 2013

I ordered GOTKW, special plate allowed only 5 characters... But in FL for a regular plate you can have 7, and I was going to go with PLGNPLY.

Colasec | 08. August 2013

@Jamon I like that one!

ZROFUME just ordered it for CA

I recently order mine:

With solar powering my house and car, I can honestly say I have a solar powered car.

FranknWC | 19. August 2013

I have

Theresa | 19. August 2013

My Roadster has CHRDGUP.

George with SacEV | 19. August 2013

In California, we have


Which my wife, a biochemist (duh) liked better than my first choice which was..........


As that has a neat, IMHO, double meaning.

Mathew98 | 19. August 2013

Was not brave enough to try this one - KizMyAzz...

However, other drives have been extremely close to doing so even without any vanity plates on my MS.

romainiacWV | 19. August 2013

COALPWRD. Soon to be on my WV tags.

mdemetri | 19. August 2013

I have (California): BYTO GAS

jvanhecke | 19. August 2013

California: I have XGASUZR

judimasters | 19. August 2013

I already have my personalized plate so I will share my second choice "THX NIC" | 19. August 2013

I went with TSLA EV -- pretty mundane but I regularly see peope in my rear view mirror read the plate before they realize what they have in front of them.

jw669 | 19. August 2013


RD7 | 19. August 2013

In AZ, I have one I believe to be unique:


Which has 2 meanings:
- uses solar energy for propulsion
- let's you take your sunlight "to go"

And yes, we a large ground-mounted solar array at home which charges the car.

Admission: my wife came up with this one :-)

hfcolvin | 19. August 2013

My #1 and #2 choice, already taken in Virginia was ICEBRKR and GAS LOL. Went with BYBY GAS. Other ideas that were available in Virginia were GAS ROFL, TSLA LUV, BYBY OIL

madbuns | 19. August 2013

voosisnise | 19. August 2013
