    If you see any good images of vanity license plates on Tesla Roadsters, post them here.

    With a car like the Roadster, it certainly calls for a vanity license plate.
    Martin got one that says MR.TESLA and Elon has one also. I have seen a few others like TESLA88 (sig #88).

    So now I have to pick mine and I am having a tough time coming up with something. In my state we can have 7 numbers/letters. You can do less than 7 if you want. The word TESLA is already taken.

    Here are some suggestions. Please add any good ones that you know of or suggestions of your own.

    TESLAAA
    LITHIUM
    LI-ION
    53-KWH
    VOLTAGE
    AMPERES
    KWH-XXL
    09TESLA
    PURE EV
    FAST EV
    TESLA S
    TESLA R

    Here's a couple that I think are already on some other spots of the forum:

    I briefly looked into:

    FU OPEC

    But the DMV web site wouldn't allow it. :)

    When I checked, all of these were already taken in CA:
    ICELESS
    WATTSUP
    BOLTAGE
    PLUGNGO

    I was thinking "53 KWH" too... And it is still available in CA!
    Someone will probably snap it up soon.

    (I am not sure which plates are taken in Washington state)

    I think my top two choices for now are:

    TESLAAA

    53 KWH

    'BEANO' could be slightly amusing (gas relief)

    Someone did get "NOOPEC" and someone got "OPECNO" as well, so some less harsh variations do get through.

    I believe I've seen some variant on "NO GSLN" locally. I hear for some reason "NO GAS" is not allowed, at least in the state of Washington.

    Hopefully "53 KWH" will become obsolete in the near future.

    If you're into alternate spellings, one might consider the Japanese romaji "TESURA"

    James, this will be mine when I get my California car, but perhaps it's still available in Washington if you like it:

    BAT R EE

    I like it even better than "battery" (which wasn't available) because you have to think for a second or two....

    That is one reason I might avoid 53 KWH. It does not stand the test of time.
    In fact, we sort of want it to become obsolete.

    What do you think of "LITHIUM" ? That works in my state. Or does it imply that the driver might be on anti-depressants?

    "LI-ION" also works, but it sort of reads too quickly like the word for the animal, "LION".

    My other idea is "KWH-XXL".
    My Hymotion plug-in Prius has a vanity plate that says "MPG-XXL".

    How about "7500OFF"? That might just get you keyed... :eek:

    Barry,
    That is a great picture with your solar panels in the background.
    I am thinking of doing the same thing for my garage website when I get my Tesla.

    Peak Oil Garage

    The photo will have three plug-in vehicles (Vectrix electric scooter, Hymotion plug-in Prius and Tesla Roadster) and will also have my solar panel system on the roof.

    There was an EV1 that had the California plate, "SOKT RKT".
    Definitely appropriate for a Roadster. Probably still available a few states.

    I like it. But it does have a credit card meaning to it.
    It would likely require an AMEX black card to charge it though.

    The UK format is more restrictive, but a quick search reveals:

    T3 SLA - taken
    T33 SLA - taken
    Y3 SLA - taken (works with dodgy use of a black screw cover)
    Y3 SEV - taken
    YE51 TEV - taken
    TE51 A EV - taken
    TE51 A MS - available
    GA55 UCK - removed from sale

    You will have to wait until 2020 if you want NO20 PEC :smile:
