I saw one on the road in Cupertino at night, a few weeks ago. It was near the 85C Bakery. Sightings of them are very rare.

Here's where 5 of them ended up: http://cleantechies.com/2014/08/26/wher ... da-evs-go/.

I got a Google alert for coda today for this http://www.heraldonline.com/2014/11/10/ ... 0/773/385/. Since the article is about http://www.ethoscarshare.com/, I just had to LOL at what http://ethoscarshare.com/learn/our-cars proclaims!
eThos is amassing a fleet of the best electric cars made in 2013: The Coda Electric Sedan.

The Coda was the only American-made, all-electric, 5-passenger sedan produced in 2013...

Huh?

One of my local users came by with his CODA and a JuiceBox Deluxe. The JuiceBox said on my Nick Sayer simulator that it was set for 16A. I measured it at 29A. It seems to me that the built in charger does not follow the J1772 spec. It is a 30A charger and that's what you get. To hell with the specs.
2012 Cayenne Red SL traded for:
2013 Pearl White SL Premium
Traded for a Cirrus White 2014 Mercedes B (totaled)
2016 Urano Gray eGolf SEL w/ drive assist
Loved the VW but it sat too low for my old body
Back to a Cirrus White 2017 B250e

I just realized that PR piece at http://www.heraldonline.com/2014/11/10/ ... /385/&rh=1 says
The nation’s first operational, all-electric car share service launched in Golden, Colo

Really? I don't think that's right either.

AFAIK, the US DriveNow fleet (https://us.drive-now.com/) was all-electric for a time, if isn't still. Their cars were solely BMW ActiveE's and they were supposed to add some i3's in the fleet (not sure if they'd add the BEV or REx versions).

American-made??
I think I just felt my paradigm shift.

2012 SL (One of the colors): 2-year lease, 2012+,
2015 S w/QC (A different color): 3-year lease, 2014+,
2017 SV (Same color as 2015 S): 3-year lease, 2017+, lower monthly than either above(!)

Well... sorta... The glider, including interior bits were an adapted Hafei Saibao. The rest of the car was assembled in Benicia, CA using bits as mentioned at http://codacars.com/, including Chinese batteries.

From https://web.archive.org/web/20130111184 ... formation/
Where is the CODA made?

The CODA is final assembled in California and features components and subsystems manufactured all over the world. The majority of the vehicle’s key electric drive components, such as the motor, transaxle and on-board charger, have been sourced from major U.S. manufacturers, including UQM, Borg-Warner, Delphi, Nexteer Automotive® and Lear.

The glider (body of the car), batteries and battery pack are the largest vehicle elements and they are made in China in a facility we lease and operate in China, where over 35 CODA engineers maintain strict control over quality and safety. Following this process, we ship these parts to Northern California (Benicia, CA) to install the energy storage system, and complete vehicle assembly. Final inspection and quality assurance processes take place and the U.S. VIN is applied in our Benicia facility.

Who manufactures the battery?

A joint venture between CODA and Lishen, one of the world’s top producers of rechargeable lithium-ion cells– and a supplier to Motorola®, Samsung®, Apple®, and many other electronics and power tool manufacturers, in Tianjin, China.
