No, not on license plates, but letters that designate car models.

They are just marketing terms used by the car manufacturers to differentiate the same model to different buyers.

In the UK, Fords are probably the most common cars on the road, and their model range would look something like this:
TD, LX, GLX, Si, Ghia, Ghia X
Sports models in the Ford range usually have the designation 'ST'.
Don't ask me what the initials of each model mean, I haven't got a clue!

By the way, to all those people that say the Ford Mondeo is crap (namely my Vectra driving Brother):
My 1995 Mondeo GLX has done 20,000 miles in the last ten months. It now has 70,000 miles on the clock. I took it in for the dreaded MOT test today, and it passed with flying colours!
I'm delighted with this, I thought I was going to have to splash out some cash!

The letter "T" usually means that it's a Ford. T for "Tin Lissy".
But there are other Fords. As Gerald Ford said in his first speach after becoming US president: I'm a Ford, but not a T-model.

Depends as you go from company to company. LX is luxury with Plymouth/Chrysler and for Honda its their mid-model.

Here in Mexico ...
Just for this cars:
Neon, Cirrus and Stratus
SE -Sedán Especial- (Special Sedan) Cheapest Model
LX - Luxury Model (With not a single airbag)
SX - Top of the models. (Quite weird to find a car of this type in Chrysler, Dodge car dealers)
Chrysler's cheapest car in Mexico, Atos (about $8,000 USD) does not have options.
Volkswagen and Seat
Used to make a difference in their models but they stopped using GL, GLS etc ...
Ibiza, Toledo, Alhambra, Cordoba, Jetta, Golf, Pointer, Derby, Beetle, Sharan, Eurovan and Passat
Trendline - Cheapest Model
Comfortline - Mid Model
Highline - Luxury Model
Sportline - Sport Models like the Jetta 1.8T, VR6 or Sharan 1.8T, Golf GTI or Pointer GTI.
For luxury models they use the word "Ghia"
Mondeo Ghia or Focus Ghia.
Renault and Peugeot
They use french words for cheaper or luxury models.
and "XS" for the sport version of the 206.
They use the words "Comfort" or "Elegance" in the Astra, Corsa or Zafira.
For Cavalier, Chevy, Impala, Malibu etc... they only use letters... kind of "Chevrolet Cavalier A" (or "B" or whatever...)

EX = Excellence (?) (loaded to the hilt)
Type R = Racing (or Rice? )
TL = Touring Luxury (midsize luxury sedan)
RL = Road Luxury (large luxury sedan)
CL = Couple Luxury (luxury coupe)
