There is ms_v_env_temp for the ambient temperature, but that's normally meant for the outside temperature I think.

You can add a metric for that, i.e. ms_v_env_cabintemp / "v.e.cabintemp".

"awake" = Vehicle/bus awake (switched on)

"on" = "Ignition" state (drivable)

You should coordinate your work with Tom Parker ("carrott"), the main developer of the Nissan Leaf adaption. To do so you can also add his repository and send
