San Diego dealership to be the first to sell the 2012 Coda sedan

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 2, 2012

Marvin K. Brown has been named as the exclusive dealership of Coda Automotive, which builds electric vehicles. Marvin K. Brown is based in San Diego County, Calif. In a statement, Coda said that the retailer would be the first to offer the 2012 Coda sedan. Coda said that this dealership will be a part of Marvin K. Brown Auto Center located right in the center of San Diego.

The public will be able to view the showroom this February. In the statement, David Grundstrom, the CEO of Marvin K. Brown, said that he believes that the people in San Diego have a growing interest in zero-emission vehicles and so he is confident that the local community will be impressed with the Coda sedan.

The brands that Marvin K. Brown offers include Cadillac, Buick, GMC, Mitsubishi, Fisker and Saab vehicles. The 2012 Coda sedan is currently on display at the San Diego International Auto Show, which starts on Dec. 29, 2010 and ends on Jan. 2, 2011. Those who are interested can also sign up for test drives. It was last August when the Coda Automotive opened its first brand experience center in Century City in Los Angeles.

It began to sign dealers in late November. As of Nov. 28, five dealerships had entered agreements with five dealerships in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle and Honolulu, according to Phil Murtaugh, Coda's CEO and a former boss of GM China and Chrysler Asia-Pacific.

Coda Automotive spokeswoman Allie Mayer declined to provide additional details on when these stores are expected to open and what its sales targets are. Coda Automotive said that the car could reach a maximum speed of 80 mph and is priced from $40,795 (inclusive of destination charges). In California, those who buy EVs can get state and federal incentives amounting to $10,000. [source: Autonews]
