    $1000 upfront and then $99 a year for a car that already has tracking built in. Then registration fees on top of that???

    Yeah I don’t understand the appeal of these digital plates at all. Seems like it’s just for people to want to show off that they can blow $700 plus on a license plate.

    It looks cool, but so prone to theft. It's so funny how Tsportline advertises this as theft deterrent. Thieves love to steal interesting things like this.

    I also hate the Tsportline logo, so plastering it over the product kills it for me. Any option with no logo?

    The $99 a year few is pretty ridiculous too.

    "World's first Model 3 with a plate of spaghetti attached to the frunk"

    See how easy it is to put "World's first" in the title.

    I think they are great, except not for $700, and not for a huge subscription fee.

    Imagine a Green EV badge showing up on your license plate, instead of ugly stickers, or handicap badging.

    Also having your year automatically updated.

    But certainly not for that price. I paid $22 for my HOV stickers. That can easily pay for a year of LTE use for something barely ever used.

    Not a problem for me. Thankfully NJ stopped putting stickers on license plates over two decades ago :D

    Wow. This is laughably ridiculous.

    But the idea has potential. What is manufacturers were to build in small LED screens in the bumpers of the cars, and you could electronically register your car with whichever state you're in? No more waiting at the DMV.

    Interesting. May be interested once they integrate the HOV stickers and figure out a way to not require hardwired power source. Why not solar? As for price, all new gadgets start out expensive. Just a matter of time before price is lowered.

    I saw this on the weekend and was wondering what it was. He had a special color plate that I never seen before and it was pretty cool. He made the plate color black to match his car and the numbers white. Usually a black plate in CA has yellow numbers.

    Also, seems like this will be used in the future as a way to start tracking EV mileage so CA can tax us on how much we drive. This is probably one of the reason CA allows this type of plate as a test.

    For $798 + $360 installation, they should include more than one year of service...

    Digital License Plates Roll Out In California

    The NPR story has a video of a very similar plate, but it's cheaper and apparently does not need permanent power, and is self installable.
