Applied for my plates almost 4 weeks ago when I bought my car but in no hurry to get them. For whatever reason, Illinois will not allow personalized or vanity plates for the electric vehicle plates. They are random numbers followed by EL.
There are rumors that an attempt will be made to change the law that prohibits them and I have written to two state elected officials asking them to support repealing the license plate law prohibiting personalized and vanity plates for electric vehicles.
The beautiful Illinois electric license plate. Random numbers followed by EL (electric). I sure hope the legislation is successful this summer.
