The World (the California part, at least) Has a New Electric Family Car

The newest boy on the all-electric-automobile block has just emerged into the California sunshine. CODA, which has been promising its four-door EV for a while now, finally started selling its much-anticipated all-electric, all-Califnornian offering.

The CODA car brings "best-in-class acceleration", "fast and easy charging", zero emissions and a good ole' Californian peace sign to the market, all for less than $30,000, once you've received your Federal tax rebate (the pre-rebate price is $37,250).

According to CODA, their car will manage 125 miles on a single charge. It also comes with a "best-in-class EV battery warranty". There are a few caveats attached to some of these claims but it's still great to see the market and product choice continue to expand in the EV car sector.

I do wish someone would explain to me why so many all-electric cars still seem to need grilles at the front, though...
