The MY2012 five-passenger CODA midsize sedan is equipped with a 31-kW·h lithium-iron-phosphate battery pack that comes with a 10-year, 100,000-mi warranty.

The first fully assembled CODA EV to be sold to a consumer rolled off the final assembly line at CODA Automotive's plant in Benicia, CA, March 12. The MY2012 five-passenger CODA midsize sedan is equipped with a 31-kW·h lithium-iron-phosphate battery pack that comes with a 10-year, 100,000-mi warranty. The EV has a range of 88 mi (142 km) per charge, but depending on driving habits can reach 125 mi (201 km), according to the company. A 6.6-kW onboard charger provides a full charge in about 6 h at 240 V. The MSRP is $37,250, but with state and federal tax breaks the net price can be as low as $27,250.
