CODA Automotive's First Vehicle Rolls Off Production Line

Santa Monica-based CODA Automotive, the electric vehicle startup, reported last night that its first, fully assembled CODA has rolled off the final assembly line at its Northern California factory. CODA said its first of its five passenger sedans will be sold in California to current reservation holders for its cars. CODA has a factory in Benecia, California, about 30 miles from San Franciso, where all of the final assembly of its autos happens. CODA said it now has dealerships throughout California which will be selling its cars, including dealerships in Silicon Valley, San Diego, and locations throughout Los Angeles. CODA's all-electric sedan can travel 88 miles per charge per the EPA rating, with CODA saying the vehicle can be driven up to 125 miles on a single charge.
