USA: Coda Electric Car Will Have Two Range Options.

Electric-car maker Coda Automotive said its new Coda sedan will give buyers the choice of two battery packs — one that gives the car a range up to 150 miles and another with a range of up to 125 miles.

The company made the announcement at the North American International Auto Show, where it displayed a group of the new cars.

The new, less-expensive battery lowers the car’s price to less than $30,000 if you include a $7,500 tax credit. The 150-mile version will have a base price of $39,900 and the lower-range model will cost $37,250 before tax credits. The company said it expects the choice of range and price to make the car more attractive to car shoppers and boost sales.

“Research shows that the high cost of today’s alternative fuel technologies is one of the largest barriers that keep the average driver from purchasing an electric vehicle,” said Coda chief executive Phil Murtaugh. Making electrics affordable is part of the company’s mission, he said, to put an electric vehicle “into every garage.”
