We have FD plates on our Tesla.There is no requirement for an EV plate but I don't see any reason you wouldn't want one, I explicitly asked Tesla for an EV plate. They said they keep a supply but they sometimes run out at the end of a quarter and have to use regular plates, I let them know I had a strong preference for an EV plate. I like the cute little EV with a plug for a tail,
Yes the EV is actually part of your plate number. I foolishly made this mistake in a parking app and got a ticket, thankfully Cambridge was lenient of my misunderstanding and tossed it.My M3 came with an EV plate when I took delivery of it last month. Does this mean that my plate number starts with "EV"? Or is "EV" not part of the plate number?
