Interesting pictures posted on ABG under Coda sedan's hood.
1. Radiator visible upfront cools power-electronics. I find this layout a bit strange, since it's traditional, but air is drawn through radiator by cooling fans (presumably from below), not due to motion (as air intake is closed off). Wouldn't hot air be pushed onto said electronics directly behind the radiator then? It seems it would be better to arrange radiator horizontally above electronic modules (similar to CPU cooling) and push air out via some kind of hood scoop.
Would give the Coda a nice "performance" look as well.
2. Battery visible on the right is lead-acid kind and is used to power accessories.
3. 33.7kWh, 333V lithium-iron phosphate battery main traction battery is manufactured by Tianjin Lishen Battery. There was talk of forming a JV with Yardney Technical Products to produce batteries in the U.S., but that deal fell through due to JV not getting DOE grant money.
4. I presume due to competitive development, we have movement on the price front
Czinger told Scott that the sedan will likely sell for around $32,000 (after rebates), which is lower than the price announced in June of $45,000 (before incentives)
