Thu Sep 14, 2017 2:06 pm

I did this when the LEAF 1.0 came out. Might as well do it again!

Well, I registered, but I'll be amazed if they bring a car to Upstate NY for me. I'm willing to drive as much as 50-75 miles, but not hundreds of miles.
2013 "Brilliant Silver" SV with Premium Package and no QC, and 2009 Vectrix VX-1 with 18 Leaf cells.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.

Got that too. Is that going out to everyone or to just those who reserved a 2018 Leaf through Nissan's website? Or to anyone for whom Nissan has their e-mail address and believes already owns a Leaf?

It seems to be 2 parts. There is the dinner/preview. Then they want another date and time where they will bring the car to you. When I put in my home address, they indicated no upcoming dates where they would bring the car. But I was able to schedule one for my work address for right after getting off from work.

Yes, I heard about these two parts (first the first time) at EVent at Nissan's Sunnyvale research office earlier tonight. 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.

None available in my area, but the site says it goes through February. Maybe something will come up when my local dealer gets a demo model.

I signed up for a weekday at 5PM at my office. I figure if it actually happens, I can get others to join me and at least look at the new car.

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 recently bought a 2015 Leaf S from a local Nissan dealer and I received an invitation to the Atlanta event in October too. I wouldn't think they'd assume I'd be in the market for a new leaf when I just bought my '15 in July.
