USA: AEP to add Coda electric car to its fleet

The electric-car company that recently withdrew a proposal to build a factory in central Ohio is announcing that American Electric Power is the first company in the world to buy one of the cars for its corporate fleet.

Coda Automotive’s debut sedan will be part of an AEP fleet that now includes 18 plug-in vehicles, the Columbus-based utility said today.

AEP is using the all-electric vehicle to help understand how the use of such vehicles will affect the electricity system, said Karen Sloneker of AEP Ohio.

“This is an evolving technology that we would like to get some early experience with, so we can more effectively plan for the future,” she said.

AEP is adding one of the Coda vehicles to the fleet that has vehicles from several manufacturers. The decision to buy the vehicle was not directly related to Coda’s plan to locate in Ohio, though AEP may have been more familiar with Coda because of it, Sloneker said.
