Hello Everyone,

I am working with evplates.com on special pricing for a license plate frame for us.

I have a couple questions about what you guys want before I finalize this with evplates.com

Option A:
We could get this exact plate at a yet to be determined discount
http://www.evplates.com/Powered-By-Tesl ... CB2YRYu-90

Option B: (my personal preference)
We could get this plate that says "100% electric" on top and "Powered by Tesla" on the bottom.
http://www.evplates.com/Black-With-Whit ... CB2yBYu-90


VERDICT:
We are going with option B. Now, what is on the fence is whether or not we have "Tesla" in Tesla font or not. With Tesla font it is $15.99 plus shipping. Without it is $11.99 plus shipping. My vote is with but please tell me what you think.

Here is a list of people who want a plate with Tesla font

Were up to 10! Yay! I will contact the seller now. Its not too late if you want want one. I will post the coupon code here when they are ready to take our orders


Here is the plate frame. I think it looks awesome!!!

Final update: THE ITEM IS READY TO BE ORDERED. No coupon code is necessary. The seller sent me a link to this "hidden" item on their website. It is not visible on their site to anyone else. He designed and posted this plate frame just for us. 10 was the minimum but there is no maximum. If you want one buy it while its posted. Its not going to be a permanent product on their site.

Cool, me too. I think there are a lot of drivers out there who have never heard of Tesla before and have no idea what "Powered by Tesla" means. I think more people will understand if it also says "100% Electric".

What are your thoughts about using the Tesla font or not?

The Tesla font does look nice and give it some distinction. Although if we want to save some cost, I can go without the Tesla font.

If I were you, I would also ask in the forum on http://www.mybclasselectricdrive.com/
Since it also uses the tesla batteries/drive train.
Bigger numbers == probably smaller prices ?!

I wont be using it on my rav4ev's ;-)

Thanks. If I have time I will sign up and post there too. I am not currently a member on that site so if someone else is they are welcome to post for us.

Out of curiosity, why not put one on your rav? Already have something else? What if we only needed ONE MORE person to get to the next pricing tier? ;-)

Nah, I took all decals off mine.
Only thing that reveals it's an EV is the blue 4 on the back.

I just bought a second rav4ev.
Too much fun.

You just bought a second one? Thats awesome. Ive only had mine for 2 days and I already want to buy another one. I worry because if some idiot ever hits me and totals this car I will never be able to have another one. :/

This is getting off topic but make sure you list the second one on our spreadsheet. :)

Back to the topic at hand.

I asked them to let me know what the price difference of Tesla font vs non Tesla font. I told him we would prefer the Tesla font unless its a substantial price difference. I also told him wed like to go with option B.
