Coda in Cali
The company Coda Automotive demonstrates automakers' efforts to make electric mainstream with a low-frills electric car meant to be practical. The Coda Sedan, which costs about $40,000 before incentives, will boast about 150 miles and get about a 30 percent charge in two hours. The sticker price is what's the greatest concern to automakers who worry that consumers won't go for all-electric cars in big numbers. Coda notes that there is a $7,500 federal tax rebate and the fuel and maintenance costs will be substantially lower. It's taking orders for cars now in California.
