Just got my Illinois EL plates in the mail today.......however....I noticed that the renewal registration cost says it will be $122 dollars....is that correct?!? I though that an EL plate registration renewal was A LOT less than that and renewal was every 2 years?? Do I need to contact Tesla or the secretary of state??

I haven't looked into it yet....was going to deal with it (I guess) when it came closer to renewing.......I am not sure why it is like that as the plates are clearly "EL" plates....

Reviving an old thread to vent a bit.....Crook-linois sent me the renewal registration today for the model 3.......It contained a letter stating that moving forward the price will now be $251 dollars per YEAR....(they proposed an annual renewal of $1000 per year initially!!!!!)......so it looks like we are being penalized for driving a greener vehicle rather than rewarded for doing so (I would think the lack of exhaust fumes....oil changes.....etc.....(environmental benefits) would have offset any greed grabs).........ridiculous to say the least.......the greed that this state portrays is really beyond belief....soon enough they will tax us for the volume of air we breathe too.....
