Can Cure LE tell me how much plastic will be used?

Is there some place in Cura LE that tells how much plastic would be used when preparing a model for Gcode?
I would love to see a calculation that indicates "this model will use approximately 6.2 meters of filament or 0.12 kilograms."

CuraLE does exactly that. See the information inside the red box in the following screenshot (this is for a dual color print so it shows each extruder separately):
