Is there another cooling system? Because if not AC you are back to LEAF "tech" (said a bit sarcastically)

Well, I guess you could use a radiator system (LEAF does have one)

Tesla circulates coolant around their cells.

Yes, but there's more than just that: https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads ... ion.88055/.

If you have nothing (e.g. AC compressor) that can bring the coolant, fluid, cells directly/indirectly to below ambient temperature, then it's of limited use. Tesla and other vehicles w/active thermal management do.

Yes, they use a heat exchanger to cool or heat the battery pack as needed. They circulate coolant around the pack, not refrigerant.
