Coda Sedan in San Francisco – Click above to watch video after the jump

Coda Automotive still isn't letting outsiders drive the all-electric sedan that's due later this year, but the company is sending the EV out to interested parties to let them get a sneak peek. The car was at AltCar late last year and was recently at the San Francisco Electric Vehicle Association (SFEVA) meeting, where Plug In America member Sherry Boschert got to got for a ride around the block. Boschert filmed her ride with Coda representative Phil Gow and passengers Jan Wiegal and David Herron. Since Coda will initially focus on selling vehicles only in California – there's no nationwide rollout like with the Nissan Leaf – the video gives people who aren't in the Golden State a brief chance to see what the car is like from the inside.

Boschert also reports a few numbers for the vehicle: the 333-volt, 33.8 kWh lithium-iron phosphate battery is made up of 728 cells and will come with an eight-year, 100,000-mile warranty. That's pretty substantial, and we imagine will sway a few people who are on the fence about EVs. The car has a range of 90-120 miles, depending on how you drive, and Coda hopes to be able to build 20,000 packs a year once production is ramped up. Watch the video after the jump.
