But how efficient is it compared to a modern car, I don’t know, maybe something like the Nissan Leaf?
The first stat here is for MPGe – the Leaf does about 35% better on that score. And the second stat is for kilowatt-hours/100 miles – the lower the better on this one, so of course the CODA Sedan is higher.
Now the people at CODA have been trying to get the cost down from $45k for a while now so the Sedan is coming out with a lower price, but both varieties of Coda’s cars are still more expensive than a thoroughly modern vehicle from a manufacturer what knows what it’s doing like, I don’t know, the Leaf and Nissan?
CODA Automotive is like WebVan and Solyndra combined.
