    Coda was doomed from the start. No one wants to buy a small generic-looking four door sedan. And I said so, repeatedly, back when they first announced themselves. listen up, potential EV startups: the path to success in the USA is thru a C-U-V (RAV4 or CR-V sized), like Zotye/Green Motors tried. Or a pickup truck, Honda Ridgeline-like, like Phoenix Motorcars tried to do. Tesla has the 4 door sedan market wrapped up tighter than a baby swaddled in a blanket. Phoenix's unibody truck was too weirdly styled in the front. If Phoenix had had Coda's money, they would have been successful.
