Instantaneous power should be available in most cars. It is certainly there in the roadster (because we spoof it to show speed as a digital speedo).
It would not be hard to add it to the model and to the location streaming feature when an App is connected.

>> Mark, you mentioned a "kWh used" value with the driving log function, so I guess we can think about adding the power usage to the standard car model?
