Ford has added digital license plates to its dealer accessories registry for customers in Arizona, California and Michigan.
Reviver, responsible for the “RPlate,” announced its partnership with Ford.
The Blue Oval will be the first manufacturer to offer a digital license plate at the dealer level, meaning customers will be able to purchase the accessory at the time of purchasing their new car.

According to the company’s website, Reviver successfully received approval from the state of California to introduce the technology into vehicles after a test in 2016. Arizona and Michigan later approved the technology.
The plate itself costs US$599 (A$937) to purchase and is available with either battery or wired. Rexviver offers its customers 60 days of free membership access, which allows drivers to:
- Customize your license plate with colors and fonts
- Access to GPS data – if you purchase a wired panel
- digitally display whether the vehicle has been stolen
- Assistance with registration renewal
- Display the registration expiration date on the license plate
After 60 days, customers will be charged $8/month (A$12.51) or $75/year (A$117.36) for battery-powered RPlates or $10/month (A$15.65) or US$95/year (A$148.66) for wired RPlates billed RPlates.
