The first CODA owner in Northern California is Randy of Redwood City, a pilot with a passion for technology. CODA Executive Chairman Mac Heller and President of Del Grande Dealer Group (DGDG) Shaun Del Grande delivered a silver CODA to the new EV owner.
“We’re delighted to offer the all-electric CODA to Randy and many more Northern California drivers in the near future,” said Del Grande. “As the first dealership in the area to offer the CODA, we’re excited to provide Northern California drivers with what they want: a reliable range, zero emission sedan and ultimately, the option to be independent from fossil fuels.”
All early reservation holders were selected based on the vehicle specifications they requested and will automatically receive a numbered plaque located on the center console and custom key chain. Commemorating the start of the CODA movement, the first 500 retail vehicles come with the limited edition features to signify that the EVs are among the first CODAs to hit the road.
The CODA is the first all-electric five-passenger, mid-size sedan with full rear seating and trunk space that meets American drivers’ daily transportation needs without an ounce of gasoline:
– The 31kWh 2012 CODA mileage vehicle features 88 miles per charge EPA rating. Depending on driving habits, it can be driven up to 125 miles on a single charge, nearly four times the average daily commute.
– The 31kWh 2012 CODA has an MSRP of $37,250 and can go up to 125 miles on a single charge. In California, federal and individual state savings and credits may bring the price down to $27,250.
– An unbeatable 6.6kW onboard charging capability provides a full charge in about six hours on 240 V (Level 2 EVSE).
– The active thermal management system provides constant battery care to help optimize the battery pack’s performance in hot and cold weather conditions.
– The EV is powered by a safe and efficient lithium-iron-phosphate (LiFePO4) battery pack with an industry leading 10-year, 100,000-mile limited battery warranty.[wzslider height=”400″ lightbox=”true”]
