CODA EV Sedan - More Efficient than EPA Ratings Suggest
text size: A- A+
Well, apparently, it’s not 141 km (88 miles), but considerably more, reaching a theoretical 176 km (110 miles) if drive appropriately. The car was reportedly taken on an 126 km (79-mile) trip, and by the end, it still had roughly 20% of its power still left in the battery. The following day, it was taken on a longer 165 km (103-mile) trip, and by the end, it still had some juice left in the battery, for "a few miles".
This all basically means that it is considerably more efficient than the Nissan Leaf, which gets a quoted range of 117 km (73 miles), and suffers from dwindling battery capacity bars in hot weather states. However, future customers of the CODA need to be aware of the fact that the sedan lacks many of the features which make the Nissan Leaf so appealing - it even has a regular car key which is pointless on an EV, we think.
