Coda Automotive filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, with a subsequent shift to a focus on grid energy storage as Coda Energy. However, there are of course a number of Coda automobiles that were manufactured but never sold. Those have now been bought up for resale at a substantial discount.

“An announcement on the new Coda Cars website says that two organizations, Club Auto Sales and Ready Remarketing, have bought the leftover stock of Sedan EVs from Coda and will now ‘offer them for sale at a substantial discount,’ ” AutoblogGreen writes. Unfortunately, nobody seems to be able to share the actual prices with those of us in the media.

“I can’t disclose the price on the full vehicles because we don’t want to upset the market for the current owners,” former Coda dealer and the man behind Ready Remarketing told AutoblogGreen. But some more details were available:

Curtis said he and his partners bought 150 vehicles from Coda, 100 gliders and 50 full vehicles. Eleven of those 50 are export models with the bigger batteries (36 kWh vs. 31), so they are not legal for use in the US. The 36-kWh pack cars can be used on private campuses or sold overseas, however. To that end, Curtis said that Coda Cars is talking to a small number of buying groups interested in the whole lot, including some from Europe and South America. Despite secrecy over pricing and a non-disclosure agreement he signed with Coda to not talk about the deal that came out of the bankruptcy, Curtis could say that he is offering one glider, without a battery pack or BMS, for $7,500.

If you’re interested in a Coda EV, a glider or parts – Curtis said he has a warehouse in Hayward, CA with about a million dollars in parts in it, things like the UQM Powerphase 100 motor used in the Sedan – head on over to Coda Cars for more information.

Pretty interesting. I think this is the third time I’ve written about Coda cars thinking it would be the last time. We’ll see if something comes up yet again, or if we can eventually find out a price from a buyer of one of these cars.
