USA: A closer look at CODA’s all-new electric official launch

There’s no denying this electric car from CODA was made for those who don’t want a technical learning curve going from a regular sedan to an electric car. The electric CODA was superbly well engineered. Here is a closer look at what lies under the hood.

Why Lithium Iron Phosphate. While most electric car makers use lithium-ion batteries, CODA chose the more efficient and environmentally friendlier lithium iron phosphate, LiFePo4. It was a balancing act that reflected the battery goal of achieving the longest range, most durable pack, and an all-climate performance with fastest charging times. The battery pack is arranged with medium prismatic cells since its manufacturing process was easier and struck a good balance with easy cooling. The Battery Management System, BMS senses humidity and in the event of a crash, automatically disconnects the battery pack. It also determines between real time and estimated energy battery and capacity levels.

Coda Battery Life Expectancy. The life expectancy of the battery pack will once and for all stop naysayer’s worn out rhetoric. It is set at 150,000 miles that will still give you 90% of its full capacity, making it on par with best in class internal combustion engines. In comparison, lithium-ion batteries show a 20% loss at 90,000 miles. It’s estimated battery span is of 350,000 miles. But the thermal management system is where the real genius lies. It allows for a consistent optimal efficiency and range by managing ambient temperature, regardless of extreme weather conditions. By avoiding the high and low temperatures, the battery not only offers maximum potential but its extends its lifespan.
