Motor Trend Names CODA 2013 Car of the Year Contender
If you’ve ever wondered when are we going to get there, today might be a good day to read the news and check out what is happening in the automotive journalism industry. The venerable Motor Trend is naming the 2013 CODA as one of its cars on the Car of the Year Contender. Maybe we are here after all when a traditional car magazine names a new kid on the block as a potential car of the year, and at that, an electric car.
CODA. What hasn’t been said about the CODA yet? From its unassuming lines to its respectable performance, after spending a day behind the wheel of the CODA in mixed traffic, I never experienced any range anxiety at any moment.

Motor Trend’s High Praise. Once we get over the shock, Motor Trend recognizing the unassuming CODA that by far over delivers in the performance department compared to its competition is not such a surprise. The car has more range, more room and seemingly, longer battery life than any other electric car on the market today for roughly the same price. It should not be too surprising to see a traditional car magazine turn an intriguing eye to a car with so much potential.
