Coda Automotive opened their first mall store. The Coda Electric Vehicle (EV) is actually a pretty good alternative to the Nissan Leaf. While a bit pricier, the 110 mile range on the car makes it a viable commuter car and fleet vehicle. Just like the Ford Taurus used to be, and the Ford Focus is becoming, Coda is likely to be the defacto standard for Electric Fleets, with its 4 hour charge time, and great range, you could conceivably commute 70 miles to work and still have charge left over to run errands after work. Coda is an All-electric, not a Hybrid. It uses lithium iron phosphate batteries and has a 134 HP motor that generates just over 200 Foot Pounds of Torque.

We finally get some time in the all new, 100% electric car the Nissan LEAF. The first widely available electric car is capable of driving about 110 miles on a charge. The electric motor produces 107 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. The LEAF can be plugged into any conventional home electric outlet to be recharged. The LEAF handles a lot better than expected and it’s acceleration was pretty impressive too. It actually felt quick off the line due to the availability of all 207 lb-ft of torque the second your foot hits the accelerator. Rumors are that the 0-60 MPH time is about 10 or 11 seconds. We didn’t have time to do an official test unfortunately but it felt a lot quicker than that to us. As far as gas mileage goes. The EPA has rated the LEAF at 99 MPG. Wow!!!

( www.TFLcar.com ) In the very near future will we all be driving electric cars? That’s a question that only 10 years ago seemed like a dream, but today with all electric cars like the 2012 Nissan Leaf, it doesn’t seem so far fetched. Of course unlike, gasoline powered cars, electric cars can’t be filled up at your local gas station in a few minutes. Once they run our of juice…you are well and truly stuck. This is called range anxiety and it can be all too real. We decide to find out just how real by spending a day in the life of the all new Nissan Leaf.
