Back in May, after a timid foray into the U.S. auto market, electric vehicle manufacturer Coda filed for bankruptcy

This was not surprising.

  • In the first place it was a startup with zero name recognition in the U.S.
  • In the second place, Coda's only product was a hideous four-door sedan that looked less appealing than a loaf of Wonder Bread on wheels. Far less appealing, in fact.
  • And in the third place, that sedan was expensive, priced at $37,250.

So: new company, ugly car, expensive product. The writing was on the wall.

However, electric car fans are a devoted lot, and if you count yourselves among that number, today could be your lucky day. According to CodaCars, a company called GreenWayEV has purchased the entire supply of unsold Coda vehicles and parts, and apparently, it's selling them at bargain-basement prices:

We have a good selection of cloth and optional leather vehicles in stock in various colors and are ready for delivery. We also have a large selection of "Gliders" (assembled cars with most everything but the drive battery power supply yet to be installed) and "Roller's" [sic] (cars that are missing the drivetrain and other componants [sic]). 

If you're in the market for an electric car and you can ignore that iffy grammar, you're encouraged to call Rick at 925-413-2990. He and his pals should have plenty of inventory -- after all, Coda only sold about 100 vehicles in the U.S.
