Here in CA, not really. Nothing with the Leaf. Only with the Model 3 a couple months back, something that would have happened if we were driving our Leaf: an elderly lady walking by asked about what I was plugging into my car when engaging a Tesla destination charger on a road trip. She seemed quite curious and noted she had never really heard about EVs before. As we walked away, she started talking to her friend about this and one could overhear they both thought this was a pretty cool development.
Really the only conversation about our Leafs over the years has been at L2 or DC fast charging stations when I might strike up a brief conversation with another PHEV/EV driver plugging in or out at an adjacent spot. In these cases we usually talk specs, how the vehicles fit our needs, etc.
