According to the energy use display on the navigation screen, it draws a maximum of 1.5 kW while stopped and it can approach 4.5 kW on an extremely hot day after being parked in the sun when moving above 18 mi/hr until it cools down the interior (power fluctuates to match cooling needs).
Well i went ahead and got one
A 2017 'S', Silver with black interior. Only black interiors available, of course! oh well.
The data you mention; is there a way to see that on a model S? (is it available in leafspy pro? i just got that going)
How, more generally, does the AC work? e.g. is the compressor variable speed? Curious.
