Buying an electric car can be a tough decision to make, especially if you’ve never owned one before. EV manufacturer Coda has come up with of the perfect solution. The company has teamed up with Enterprise Rent-A-Car to add its all-electric sedan into the rental car company’s fleet. Coda will introduce about 100 sedans across various Enterprise locations throughout 2011.
The Coda Sedan is the company’s first vehicle and it will be available in the coming months. A five-passenger sedan, this model comes equipped with a full-size trunk and a cruising range of between 90 and 120 miles per charge. It features a 6.6 kW on-board charging system which needs six hours for a full charge and can provide a 40-mile cruising range with just a two hour charging period.
“The CODA’s dependable, all-season range is a perfect match for the driving conditions found throughout Enterprise’s neighborhood network of car rental locations,” said Kevin Czinger, President and CEO, CODA Automotive. “Enterprise has demonstrated a strong commitment to sustainability and is aligned with our mission to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles.”
No only will the Coda Sedan be a part of the Enterprise rental fleet, the rental company will serve as a loaner car system for Coda owners. When a Coda vehicle owner takes it in for service, an Enterprise rental car will be available while the vehicle is in the shop.
