I must have gotten some early adopters for the new EL Illinois license plates if they are going in numerical order.

228 EL Nissan LEAF I-55 Springfield Illinois

Most of the vehicles I've come across either have specialized or normal plates. Most of the Illinois Chevy Volts I have seen do not have EL or specialized plates. I keep running into Illinois Volts in St Louis.

That plate is only partially the truth.
All the Mitsubishi i-MiEVs I have come across either have State / City plates Bloomington / Normal Illinois area or regular Illinois licenses plates - none I've seen have been specialized. I've seen a good amount of i-MiEVs.
