Coda filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on May 1 2013. The profile below has been left online to assist prospective purchasers of secondary market Coda vehicles. 117 cars were produced from March 2012 to April 2013 and sold in California. Cars still in operation may become available on the secondary market. 

The Coda is a 4-door, 5-passenger car that looks like a standard mid-class sedan; however, this Pininfarina-designed body on a Mitsubishi chassis is powered by a bespoke 134 hp, 221 lb-ft electric motor paired with a 31 kWh lithium ion iron phosphate battery.

EPA rated the car at 88 miles range but Coda estimated most drivers could actually achieve closer to 125. The battery, with 29% capacity than the Nissan Leaf's, appears capable. although the EPAs rating of 73 MPGe for the Coda versus the Leaf's 103 MPGe may explain the discrepancy.

The 6.6 kW onboard charger gives the sedan a recharge time of under 6 hours better than the typical 3.3 kW available for most of it's competitors. The Coda's battery comes with a 10-year, 100,000 mile warranty.
