Coda 2012-2013

The Coda is a four-door, four passenger electric car once manufactured by Coda Automotive. After being re-scheduled several times, deliveries to retail customers in the United States began in March 2012. The car was sold exclusively in California and only 117 units were delivered by April 2013.

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Coda's 31 kWh lithium ion iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery system delivers a range of 88 mi (142 km). EPA's rated the Coda's combined fuel economy at 73 miles per gallon gasoline equivalent (3.2 L/100 km).

The Coda adapted the body of the existing Hafei Saibao III, modifying the front and rear fascias. This variant is produced by Hafei and sold in China as the Saibao Electric Motor Car or Hafei Saibao EV.

History

Coda Automotive re-engineered an existing gasoline-powered vehicle, the Hafei Saibao, in order to reduce the cost of building the Coda electric car from the ground-up. The car was designed by Pininfarina and unveiled at the 2004 Beijing Auto Show. The base Saibao chassis is based on the late-1990s Mitsubishi Lancer. Coda engineers modified the design to improve safety and successfully completed two of the tests necessary to gain Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards certification in the second quarter of 2009; the full frontal impact test at 35 miles per hour (56 km/h) and the 40% offset test at 45 miles per hour (72 km/h).

Coda Automotive filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on 1 May 2013. The company stated that it expects to emerge from the bankruptcy process to focus on energy storage solutions as it has decided to abandon car manufacturing.

The last remaining unsold Codas were later bought up by electric car company Mullen Technologies, Inc., who are now selling them as the Mullen 700e.

Specifications

The Coda basic model was powered by a 31 kWh lithium ion iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery system that is substantially larger than that of other vehicles in its class. Under its five-cycle testing, the EPA rated the combined fuel economy equivalent at 73 MPGe (3.2 L/100 km), with a combined city/highway energy consumption of 46 kWh/100 mi, the highest among all electric cars available in the U.S. by early 2012. The equivalent fuel economy rating for city driving is 77 mpg-US (3.1 L/100 km; 92 mpg-imp) and 68 mpg-US (3.5 L/100 km; 82 mpg-imp) on highways. EPA's official range is 88 mi (142 km). Coda Automotive estimated the range to be up to 125 mi (201 km) under favorable operating conditions. The Coda had a top speed of 85 mph (137 km/h) electronically limited.

The battery system featured an active thermal management system, which Coda Automotive stated would give the vehicle a more dependable range than other BEVs and improved battery system durability. The vehicle featured a 6.6 kW on board charger which charges the vehicle at a rate twice that of the Nissan Leaf and Chevrolet Volt. The Coda sedan could be charged from depletion in under six hours when plugged into a level-two (220V) charge station. The company estimated that it would cost less than US$3, on average, to charge the vehicle overnight. The electric car had a 3-year, 36,000 mile limited warranty, the powertrain a 5-year, 60,000 mile limited warranty, and both battery pack options available had a 10-year, 100,000 mile limited warranty.

Safety features included anti-lock braking system, electronic stability control (ESC) with traction control, a 6-air bag system, pre-tensioner equipped seat belts, and a child restrain system. Standard non-safety features included a touch-screen CD player radio, eco-friendly cloth seats, and chrome door handles and side mirrors. Available features include black-finished alloy wheels, metallic paint colors, leather seats, and an upgraded premium sound system.

Suzuki Aerio, is that you?

This is a pretty low point for Pinifarina...
