CODA to Launch CODA EV in Hawai’i in 2011

By Green Car Congress on 09/02/2010 – 9:40 am PDTLeave a Comment

CODA Automotive intends to distribute the battery-electric CODA Sedan to consumer and fleet customers in Hawai’i in the third quarter of 2011.

CODA plans to begin limited deliveries at the end of 2010. The CODA Sedan is a four-door, five-passenger car, powered by an all-electric drive system, including a CODA-designed 33.8 kWh Lithium-ion battery system. CODA’s proprietary battery management and thermal management systems keep the battery within a specified temperature range which enhances safety and durability, and allows for a consistent and dependable range of up to 120 miles (193 km) across all US weather conditions, the company says.

CODA Automotive’s all-electric vehicle is another important addition to Hawai’i’s efforts to transition to a clean energy economy. The State of Hawai’i recognizes new electric vehicle technology and the electrification of the transportation sector will play a critical role in helping Hawai’i reduce its dependency on the use of fossil fuels and achieving our 70 percent clean energy goal by 2030.

—Governor Linda Lingle

Under the Hawai’i Clean Energy Initiative launched by Governor Lingle and the US Department of Energy in 2008, Hawai’i’s vision is to have clean energy account for 70% of its total energy needs by 2030.
