    Are there any Tesla owners here who can provide input on what it costs annually for registration, especially in California?

    Not sure if others know, California enacted a penalty (surcharge) on EVs because they don't pay gas tax.

    Model 3 probably not comparable, need info on what we expect Rivian to sell for, say $90,000 in round numbers equipped? What Tesla would be comparable to that price point?

    3.060 Registration Fees (CVC §§9250–9265 and 9400.1)
    To register a vehicle in California, certain basic fees are collected, based on the type of vehicle, county of residence, and type of transaction.

    Other miscellaneous fees may also be due, based on the type of vehicle and type of transaction.

    The regular fees required for vehicles subject to registration are:

    • Registration fee (RF). $60
    • California Highway Patrol (CHP) law enforcement fee. $26
    • Miscellaneous county fees which DMV is mandated to collect. Varies by location
    • Vehicle license fee (VLF). 0.65% ($585 on a $90K vehicle)
    • Weight fee (WF) for commercial vehicles. n/a
    • Reflectorized license plate fee. $1
    The EV fee that will be collected starting in 2020 is $100/year (As a reference point, Oregon is $200). That equates to ~211 gallons of gas or the equivalent of driving 3K to 5K miles per year in a new pickup (15 to 25 mpg).

    California is expensive! My Tesla M3 was $76 for 2 years and the $75 for the HOV permit. (Florida)

    Thanks for providing an authoritative answer. Not nearly as bad as I expected.

    But yes, Joel, we do wish we would get something for our money besides broken promises.

    I grew up in San Diego and still have friends that live out there. I am always surprised how many people don’t move.

    Be glad you're not in colorado, will be multiples higher than even CA. On a $80k car, you'd be looking at about $1425 in ownership tax (this is NOT sales tax, we get that too), and $78 more for the true registration fee. And yes, this gets paid annually, but the ownership tax does go down over time.

    Here is the breakdown on my 2019 tabs for my 2017 Land Rover Diesel Discovery in the state of Washington:
    Registration Fee $3.00
    License Plate $0.25
    Dept of License $0.50
    Trans Benefit $20.00
    Vehicle Wt $45.00
    License $30.00
    Registration $5.00
    RTA Tax $577.00
    Total $680.75
    The RTA tax funds light rail which will eventually cost $54 Billion. The people just voted for the third time to replace these taxes with a flat $30.00 license fee.
    The Seattle mayor and King Co executive, in their wisdom, filed a lawsuit to invalidate the election. Spare us the wisdom of politicians and be glad you don't live
    in Washington
