Coda sets price on new EV

Coda has set the price for its new electric car: $44,900. After the federal tax credit, the cost drops to $37,400. In California, the only place the car will be offered this year, the cost should drop to $32,400, presuming the car receives CARB certification as a 100 mile range EV.

That's still a good $10,000 more than the Nissan LEAF. But Coda has an ace up its sleeve. Range. With a 33.8kWh lithium battery pack, nearly 10kWh larger than LEAF's, it could have significantly greater range.

But the proof is in the pudding. Until we get a chance to drive both cars the distance, it's all conjecture.
