100-200watt, according to Ingineer. So the whole-car panel would just keep the system on...in the daytime...in full sunlight....

6. The Leaf's various pumps, fans, relays, systems, displays and computers consume 100-200 watts from the 12v system at "idle" when the car is ready (depending on several factors). This power ultimately comes from the ~400v traction pack, not the 12v aux battery. (The DC-DC converter provides this 12v power anytime the car is in ready mode or charging.)

Yeah, that's what the energy screen shows on mine as well. Higher (~350W) at night with the headlights on. Seat and steering wheel heaters don't seem to make any difference in the display, suggesting that it may be less than precise.
