USA: First Coda Electric Car Deliveries Now “Late Fourth Quarter” 2011

Phil Murtaugh, CEO of Coda Automotive, said his company’s electric car is on schedule to go on sale in the United States in the fourth quarter of this year. “We’re making good progress,” he said, speaking at the Automotive News China Conference. “We’re getting our production tooling all in order now. It takes about six weeks to ship them over to the United States, so sometime in the fourth quarter, probably the late fourth quarter, we’ll see cars going on sale in California.”

Underscore “Late Fourth Quarter.” Based on pre-delivery announcements and actual deliveries of previous electric cars, that means the first few Coda models could arrive just before the end of the year, with a slow ramp-up in 2012. Coda previously delayed its first sales from a target of December 2010, to the second half of 2011. In announcements, the date has slowly shifted from the second half of 2011, to late 2011, and now late fourth quarter.
