Even though Elon Musk and his team recently celebrated the factory’s 5,000 per week Model 3 production rate milestone, Tesla is still sitting on roughly 420,000 outstanding Model 3 reservations. Sure, 28,386 Model 3 vehicles have already been delivered to customers (and 11,166 more are in transit), but that still leaves a whole lot of reservation holders anxiously awaiting their new Tesla.

What’s a reservation holder to do while waiting for that special Model 3 delivery day? One idea: order a personalized license plate. USA Today teases, “Tesla CEO Elon Musk has no tolerance for anything ‘boring.’ And many Tesla owners embrace the same notion when it comes to the personalized license plates for their electric cars and SUVs.” Why? Tesla owners tend to have “clever license plates” that often “praise electricity [and] denounce gas.
USA Today’s Ben Tobin explains, “Playing off Tesla’s notoriety in the electric vehicle market, these license plates poke fun at gasoline-powered cars and trumpet their own eco-friendliness.

Here are Tobin’s top picks for must-see Tesla license plates…

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
