Coda electric car for US in 2010:

Friday, August 28, 2009, by Auto Correspondent

I was quite that I have never about this electric car is planned for a United States in 2010. A lot of things miss me days my age must be getting to me.

the car looks interesting enough. A electric car is always a dangerous unlike a hybrid, or even the of range-extender equipped electric the Chevrolet Volt. a pure car has some limitations which are to overcome. Let s take a look at how is going about this

Automotive is based in California and it raised $ 24 million in second funding. That s nice to it means that the ones the money have confidence in the car Henry M Paulson, ex-treasury has been inducted into the board of Coda Automotive.

good sign to see men who manage big part of the company.

It is that the Coda electric car hit US streets before Tesla s S electric sedan or the much-anticipated Volt.

Colorado-based UQM will electric motors for the Coda The lithium ion battery pack Tesla Roadster and Model S lithium ion battery packs can be charged in 12 hours using the 110 Volt electric power, or in 6 using 220 Volt power. electric car would use a UQM PowerPhase 100 capable of producing 134 bhp, or 100 KW.

The Coda is expected to hit the roads in at a price of $ 45,000. That seem high, but there is a incentive of $ 10,000 which bring the price down to $ Not bad, at that price I think.

So now we come to the million dollar What is the range offered by the electric car?

Coda says that the range be 90 to 120 miles. Like other cars, that would take care of commuting to or city runabout duties.

Like all other electric you would face a problem, if you want to take the car out on the freeway. You won t be to get much far. The long time of 6 hours would mean that you won t be able to nip a restaurant for a quick bite your car into a power and be ready to go again when you get out of

Truth is, neither the Coda sedan nor any other electric car allow you to do that.

Looks and

Sedate. That s the Coda car s design in a word. Too subdued. I by the time the car is ready to be launched, might change the grille or and make it look a little ah, sleepy. You can see its sleepy face the photos on this story.

Just looking at them me sleepy.

An electric car from

Yes, that is what the electric car really is. The chassis is China s government owned car Hafei. Don t bolt, guys.

went for this chassis it meets all required safety in US, and it was a relatively easy matter of out the gasoline engine and related and plonking in a battery pack and motor. Easy way to save eh? Before you gripe, remember Tesla did pretty much the thing for the Roadster when it for the Lotus Elise package for its sportscar.

Is it worth it at the price?

I personally NO. But I personally believe electric don t make financial sense at point. None of the electric planned by anyone for US are full-fledged in the traditional sense. They are city runabouts, or useful for a planned trip to somewhere not too far

Even considering that costs much less gas, in my mind, they be priced LESS than average Honda Civic, and they would make At the prices they are planned, I don t neither the Coda or any other car sense at all. Mind I absolutely love the idea of cars.

It is the value-for-money equation I have a problem with. if saving the environment was my first and saving my bank account second, I would plump for all electric cars right Coda, Tesla Roadster, bring them on!
