You mean Rick?

I don't know how many local Coda guys we have? :lol:

Some more details of the Mullen 700e at http://www.autoblog.com/2014/11/20/mullen-700e-la-2014/.

Those new cars will have bigger batteries, still made by Lishen. While the original cars has a 31-kWh battery pack, the 700e will have a 40-kWh pack and Mullen and Lishen are working on a 50-kWh pack. Other difference include 16-inch low rolling resistance tires (instead of 17-inch low profile tires) and undercladding on the back end. Those changes turn the original 125-mile car into a 150-mile car, Curtis said, and with the new 40-kWh pack, it's over 180 miles. With the 50 kWh, that jumps to over 200 miles

I definitely don't like how they're stretching the truth here. They're calling the original 88 mile on the EPA test 31 kWh car a "125 mile car". :roll:

It's just like the "100 mile" Leaf BS that really set people up for disappointment. NOBODY at http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=11201 thought that's the right value to tell potential Leaf buyers. That kind of BS at dealers and auto shows for a long time: http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=13264.

They might be referring to the original-original car, which had a 36kWh battery. The U.S. version had the outside block of cells removed after the Volt fire debacle instead of actually designing a proper safety mechanism, which brought U.S. spec Codas down to 31kWh. Either way, I wouldn't bet on seeing any Mullen 700Es driving around.

The Coda specs, design, and build quality were barely adequate in 2012, they're definitely lackluster compared to today's offerings. I remember driving a Coda at EVS and then getting into an i-MiEV and thinking how much better the Mitsubishi was overall. If I were forced to choose between the Coda and an i-MiEV, even if pricing were the same, I'd pick the i-MiEV any day of the week.

Interesting... did not know that back story. I always figured it was 31 kWh usable out of a 36 kWh pack, or something like that.

Yeah, agreed on the last point although I'd lean towards them being inadequate in 2012.

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).


Car2Go has been all electric in San Diego since 2011.

That's a whole 200e more than what Fiat is selling! :lol:

I also like how the Mullen logo on the trunk doesn't match the one on the nose of the car.

Former GM exec Murtaugh hired as CEO of Chinese automaker Qoros:
February 3, 2015 - 2:53 pm ET
SHANGHAI (Bloomberg) -- Qoros Automotive Co., the Shanghai-based joint venture between China’s Chery Automobile Co. and Israel Corp., appointed a former General Motors executive to run the company after struggling to boost its sales.

Phil Murtaugh, who has led GM’s China operations and ran the then-Chrysler Group’s Asian operations, started as CEO of Qoros on Monday, the company said in a statement. His predecessor, Guo Qian, had moved back to Chery.
...
Murtaugh, 60, also was the CEO of electric carmaker Coda Automotive Inc., which filed for bankruptcy in 2013.
