We did this with the Roadster. What vanity plates are people ordering for the Model S? My Roadster is IL – FUELESS as a play on all the people that told me I was foolish for buying the car. Haven't picked one for the S yet. Share yours here.

Mine is boring, just my initials... BYT ;o)

TonyF | July 31, 2012

I am in PA and my plate is TESLA. I was lucky to get it and currently have it registered to my 2000 Chevy Cavalier. That combination requires a little bit of 'xplainin' but once I take delivery of my Tesla, people will understand.

Brian H | July 31, 2012

My fave is I ZAP U. Or IZOTU. Or 123ZOT.

Or BZZZT. Etc.

John56 | July 31, 2012

@TonyF I'm also in PA and my plate is TESLA S. I got it about a year ago and it is currently on my Sienna minivan. I go thru the same 'xplainin'. ;-)

David M. | July 31, 2012

Apparently this plate was already taken in several states, but not my State when I applied for it last year.

Since I live on the east coast, I thought it would be cool to have a license plate frame that said:
"Imported From"

So I had it made custom from a site I found on the internet.

The Model S will be the first American made car that I have purchased since I bought a used 1974 Mustang II. That was 31 years ago.

Brian H | July 31, 2012

Not tea bags! 'CURRENTLY' would also work. Or "CURRENT S".

Brian H | July 31, 2012

Or, for that matter, "FUTURE S".

Might be too nerdy, but I like it.

No methane? Does not compute ---

MB3 | July 31, 2012

My car is powered by solar and hopes to has ordered the plate


petero | August 1, 2012

I am in CA and my plate is - +ESLA S.

My local DMV office is holding my plate until my "S" arrives. Can't wait!

KevinJ | August 1, 2012

My Roadster sports "SAVEMOM" plates in Maryland (the maternal reference to Mother Earth), and plates for Sedan will be "NOPEC", fyi, krj

Amped OC | August 1, 2012

How about Watt's Up? I saw that on an electric boat in Newport Harbor.

MandL | August 1, 2012

Driving my Kia Sorento around Maryland with KCK GAS requires some explaining too.

jrb | August 1, 2012

My NY plate is 0-GAS

Jgdixon | August 1, 2012

Just ordered CLEANPWR for Ontario,Canada

webpicasso | August 1, 2012

Jgdixon@: is that a green plate? I'm wondering if we (in Ontario, Canada) are able to get green vanity plates so we are still able to use high-occupancy lanes.

RobS | August 1, 2012

Like MandL above, at the Miami test drive there was a volt in the lot with the plate "Kick Gas"

h8young | August 1, 2012

@Petero, how do you get the DMV to hold the specialized plates for you until your "S" arrives? I'm curious to know as I would like to be able to do the same.

Larry Chanin | August 2, 2012

My next car is electric!


Jgdixon | August 2, 2012

No my plate is not a green plate.
Currently you can't order personalized green plates.:(

boleoleo | August 3, 2012

I actually ordered two other California plates (which I will relinquish to the DMV when they come in) before I settled on a third which will go on my Signature Performance; "NOPEC EV" (No OPEC, Electric Vehicle). The two I will be giving up are "BEE KNOW" (Beno = No Gas) and "AOG EV" (I am in the aircraft machined parts business and AOG indicates Aircraft On Ground, a high priority. This plate idea occurred to me after my test drive in a Model S Performance as I certainly thought it compared to an aircraft flying on the ground!).

David Trushin | August 3, 2012

For all you Physics geeks "NperAM"

jwcormier | August 3, 2012

Nice, David. I'm going to get 10KGAUS (can't fit the extra 'S' on Gauss).

Slindell | August 3, 2012

h8young: it's a block you can check on the personalized plate form. Note: I can't find that option on the DMV online form.

walla2 | August 3, 2012

I posted earlier that I plan on putting a motorcycle/trailer sized plate on the front with a no drill plastic bracket. Don't have a lot of interest in the holes or the full-size. I'm hoping the police won't know any better.

h8young | August 3, 2012

Slindell, thanks for the info.

JohnEC | August 3, 2012

My Ca plates will be GOT AMPD

petero | August 3, 2012

h8young. I just asked nicely. I explained the car was scheduled to be hand built in California in early 2013. To my surprise, they said OK.

Brian H | August 3, 2012

hand built? The robots are not amused.


petero | August 3, 2012

Brian H. Sorry, a poor choice of words. I do not wish to offend the "bots"... but could they please speed it up, the DMV won't hold my plate forever.

WalterNY | August 3, 2012

Ordered New York plates today.

6 weeks for the plates, 11 weeks for the car. Can't wait!

cerjor | August 3, 2012

P IS IV. Equal sign not allowed

cerjor | August 3, 2012

I wanted NIKOLA but someone in Washington state already has it.

Brian H | August 4, 2012

How about EQ? P EQ IV ??

cerjor | August 4, 2012

Brian, that would work too. Probably better. Thanks for the suggestion.

Volker.Berlin | August 6, 2012

Here are a couple threads that have already collected lots of ideas: (public) (private) (private) (public)

(*private means that only logged-in reservation holders can see these topics.)

Ravindra_ModelS_P200 | August 6, 2012

CA Plates <3 2BECLN is my plate

jkirkebo | August 6, 2012

Volker.Berlin: Are you sure about that ? I have EU#P1088 and if I try to open a private thread I just get "access denied". I though these threads were for owners only ?

bredell | August 6, 2012

It's the same for me. I'm logged in and have a reservation (#537) and I can't access any private threads.

What's the difference between a public and a private thread? How is a thread made "private"?

Manta | August 6, 2012

jkirkebo & bredell: Yes, private threads are for reservation holders. I had the same problem when I first tried accessing them too, so I sent an email to the only address on the site (the one for reservations in the Contact Us section), and a few days later I had access. FYI, I had to send another email later to get access to create a private thread, but hopefully you won't have to.

MikeUpa | August 7, 2012

i am expecting mine in September and here are a few ideas that i am playing with:

6.00 MPG

I am also holding "nohybrid", what do yuo think?

Brian H | August 7, 2012

Shouldn't #6 be "00 GPM"?
And #3: NO EXOST ??

Teoatawki | August 7, 2012

Maybe just a little slow this morning, but I don't grok TON YHW.

Vawlkus | August 7, 2012
