I signed up on tablets there for the test drive and yeah, a slide mentioned Oct timeframe for events like what Joe6pack mentioned. The marketing guy mentioned there'd be a celebrity chef there.
I did receive a "Your all-new LEAF driving experience is confirmed" email after signing up but nothing about the celebrity chef event.
Today at the Cupertino EVent (https://driveelectricweek.org/event.php?eventid=899
), at the Leaf booth, they did have signups for the celebrity chef EVent.
There were two choices: SF (I believe Oct 14 or 15) and San Jose (Oct 21). The latter was more convenient but it seemed I was signing up to be on the wait list for that. I believe both were in the evening. San Jose one was 6 to 10 pm, IIRC.
The web page they had us go to also let us put ourselves on the wait list for the above EVent + schedule a test drive where the car's brought to you.
I'd been in email communication w/the EVent folks and basically, I was waitlisted for the Oct 21st event San Jose (much closer for me) but actually conflicts with an event for a coworker anyway.
They said I could attend the Oct 14th SF event, so I'm going to that. Not really clear if there will be any test drives there. Unfortunately, due to the distance (~60 miles, one way, almost all highway) and cost of charging at the EVent, I'll probably be driving my Toyota ICEV to it.
(It'll cost me more $ to charge there than to use gasoline for the roundtrip.)
I'm currently scheduled for them to bring me an '18 Leaf to the location of my choosing for a test drive on Dec 2nd. Since that's a weekend, they're bringing it to my house.
