    Ownership advisors at both the Westmont and Highland Park, Illinois (suburban Chicago) Tesla stores inform me that beginning today they are providing Model 3 test drives. Those cars have the original configuration with the larger battery pack, rear wheel drive and premium upgrade.

    Is this invite only (via the Tesla test drive link on their site) or can you just show up?

    The ownership advisors told me that Model 3 test drives must be scheduled in advance either by phone or through the website. When I spoke with them yesterday they said they were fully booked for that day and were accepting requests for the coming week. Test drives are scheduled in 30-minute blocks. Note that in Illinois auto dealers including Tesla are closed on Sundays.

    When I test drove a Model S in Highland Park over two years ago, I just showed up. I imagine that will eventually be fine for the Model 3, but not right now.
