CODA to Launch its Electric Sedan in Hawaii in 2011

By Pure Green Cars on 09/02/2010 – 9:30 am PDTLeave a Comment

California-based CODA Automotive announced its intent to distribute the electric CODA Sedan to consumer and fleet customers in Hawaii in the third quarter of 2011.

The CODA Sedan will be one of the first all-electric vehicles on the road in the U.S. when CODA begins limited deliveries at the end of 2010.

The electric 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 with 40 percent more usable energy that any electric vehicle in its class.

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 across all U.S. weather conditions.

Over 100,000 miles of use, each electric CODA Sedan will result in an average CO2 savings of 21.8 tons relative to a 25 MPG internal combustion engine-based car.

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