They also have slightly lower EPA-rated electric ranges.
The Ford has a 6.6-kilowatt charger like the Coda, whereas the Leaf's 3.3-kW charger will take twice as long for recharging.
The Mitsubishi i-MiEV minicar is also all-electric, and less expensive, but its 62-mile range is a show stopper for many.
The Chevrolet Volt blends a 38-mile electric range with unlimited travel using its gasoline range extender, while the Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid adds a small amount of electric range (6 to 11 miles) to its well-known Prius hybrid hatchback.
None of the competitors offer quite the package the Coda Sedan does, but they're all better built and come from known automakers that will clearly be around 10 years hence.
