Before entering the Chicago Tesla Motor downtown store during my revisit – I took some outside video shots. This Model S was front and center in the service area.

The EL plate is an Illinois license plate for electric cars. I can’t find any further information on the CyberDrive Illinois or Illinois Secretary of State websites. There are multiple EV forum threads related to these license plates.

Illinois Secretary of State website may have a PDF or two that explain the electric car license plate program in detail.

Keep in mind – just because this Tesla Model S was in the service bay – this does NOT mean it was broken or malfunctioning. Could have been in the shop for a software update, yearly maintenance – which is limited to a once a year check or something other than the car not working properly. So EV haters back off!!

My last visit to this location was in 2010 for it’s public Grand Opening event.

Disclaimer – I am a very minor Tesla Motors stock owner. Unfortunately I didn’t have near the amount of money I wanted to invest in this company. But I do own a few shares.

“Special thanks to Latonya at the Rockford SOS Drivers License Facility for finding out the corrective action to fix the plates.

Special thanks to Agnes Mrozowski for providing the SOS Special Plates division phone number. It is 214-782-7758. (By the way, that wasn’t the number I had called earlier when I talked to an SOS employee about the plates. This number was provided later.)”
