I wish they would. They could even send out the Geek Squad to install ;)

Maybe they will. At Plug-in 2010 in San Jose Best Buy had a booth - sort of - that seemed to imply exactly that. It was a very pathetic excuse of a booth, though. Nothing but four poster boards lined up; no one there to talk to.
End of April 2013: Traded my 2011 SL for a 2013 S with charge pkg.

Yes, most know that. So why is A key city like SF not part of the project while cities like Phoenix are? It is even funnier to see the Nissan CEO with the Sf mayor saying how SF will be a key player in the Leaf project and EV roll out.

We have been through this once. Anyway, here is my take.

They wanted one city in each state. In CA - SanDiego was chosen because that is Nissan's home base. In some states they chose multiple cities to get enough people for the project (AZ, OR, TN). In CA they expanded to LA later as they got more money.
1st Leaf : 2/28/2011 to 5/6/2013
2nd Leaf : 5/4/2013 to 3/21/2017
Volt : 3/25/2017 to 5/25/2018
Model 3 : 5/10/2018 to ?
