Is that with your Leaf plugged in for charging?
I've observed that when CC is activated remotely (plugged in, exterior temp 30 or 40 F, auto CC temp set to 68 F), it runs the resistive heater (and not the heat pump, as shown by Leaf Spy) for some length of time (10 minutes? 20? I haven't timed it.) and then switches to defrost mode for a few minutes, then back to resistive heating. I would think if your Leaf spent 10 or 20% of its auto CC time in defrost mode, you wouldn't have that much condensation.
EDIT: I timed the remotely initiated climate control. Not plugged in, it's 10 minutes of heater, 5 minutes of defrost and then off. Plugged in, it repeats 10 minutes of heater and 5 minutes of defrost, over and over. This is with low outdoor temperatures. The cycle for cooling may well be different, but it will be another 6 months or so before I can measure it. And of course, Nissan may have changed the remote CC between model years 2015 and 2018.
