CODA Automotive Now CODA Energy

July 7th, 2013 by  

I wrote about CODA Automotive’s bankruptcy filing and refocus on energy storage solutions back in May. A more recent and fleshed out update is as follows (via EV Obsession):

CODA Automotive was never a rockstar of the electric vehicle industry… even with surfers gawking at it. So, when it filed for bankruptcy, not a lot of people took notice.

But CODA may have found a better niche for itself. It is now CODA Energy and is switching to a sole focus on energy storage solutions. No one gets a lot of attention in that sector, so maybe this is a better fit for CODA in more ways than one.

“A consortium of investors led by global investment management firm Fortress Investment Group (NYSE: FIG) has acquired the core technology, engineering and energy storage assets of CODA Holdings, Inc., as well as its key contracts and partnerships, to form the foundation of a new company that will carry over the brand name CODA Energy,” a press release stated.

“CODA Energy designs and builds scalable energy storage solutions that support a smarter, cleaner and more reliable grid. Ed Solar and Pete Nortman will co-manage the company…. CODA’s energy storage system (ESS) combines advanced batteries into modular towers or building blocks – The CODA Core™ – with proven battery and thermal management systems (BMS and TMS), all managed through a sophisticated power source controller. The systems are optimized for generation, distribution and behind-the-meter applications for commercial & industrial end users, and can be adapted for utility, community and residential applications.”

    Do you see the products they offer at CODA Energy LLC? Fleets of electric vehicles which look just like the CODA I purchased in January. My vehicle intermittently losses power while driving down the road. I have been dealing with this problem since day one. CODA Automotive consistently rejects my requests to fix or repurchase the vehicle though I have recorded several of my experiences. And now they are hiding behind their bankruptcy. My local authorized CODA service company can not fix the problem largely due to the inability to get a CODA technician on the problem. CODA Energy LLC has the ability to continue to sell/lease these vehicles while I am stuck with an unreliable and dangerous mode of transportation.
