Is there a display in the drivers instrument display or center screen to show the amount of kW currently being used or returned to the battery?

I looked through the owners manual, but might have missed it.

I see Braking Coach, but displays after you have stopped. And I know about the, where your energy is going, graph that’s shows the break down of how the energy is used.

But so far I haven’t seen something that shows the amount of kW real time usage.

I don't think it currently exists. We can hope those types of details will be added later (along with displaying the charging speed).

Unfortunately no, which seems like a huge oversight, just like the lack of kW display during charging. I have to have hope that this will be in the first OTA.

I have it in my Kona and it's very useful. I was disapointed to see it was absent when I drove one. The battery temperature is also a crucial information (especially for level 3 charging) I hope they will have it in a OTA. I have an external screen in my Kona that displays battery temperature with a bluetooth OBDII device

There Is no option for that on MME yet. But you can archive that using the Car Scanner app and a ELM327 (viewer) BT adapter. I would not recommend for day by day use, but good to have an idea of power consumption and regeneration.
