CODA Automotive Selects Mr. Electric as Preferred EV Charging Station Installation Partner

All-Electric Car Company and Electrical Service Expert Join Forces to Provide a Robust Approach to EV Adoption

LOS ANGELES, April 5, 2012 // PRNewswire // -- CODA Automotive, a leading developer of all-electric vehicles, today named electric service and repair company Mr. Electric as its preferred provider of electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) installation services. With nearly 20 years of experience in electrical installation and repair services throughout the U.S. and Canada, Mr. Electric intends to offer complete consultation and installation services of electric vehicle charging stations for CODA Automotive customers. The relationship is the latest progression in the EV company's ample service infrastructure network.

"As the installation of a home charging station is an integral part of the EV adoption process, we want to ensure our customers have a reliable and knowledgeable single contact to make installation a seamless experience," said Thomas Hausch, senior vice president of sales, marketing, and aftersales. "We selected Mr. Electric as our preferred installation partner based on their vast experience in EVSE installations. We look forward to working closely with Mr. Electric and our dealer network to make the process of going electric a reality for CODA drivers."

CODA Automotive customers will work with their dealer to set up a home assessment appointment through Mr. Electric. After the consultation, Mr. Electric can help handle all necessary permits and conduct the installation of the EVSE.

"As more people grab for the EV charger – and not the gas pump – home charging becomes an important part of their daily lives," said Jeff Meyers, president of Mr. Electric. "We are thrilled to work with CODA Automotive, its dealers and customers to bring EV charging to garages throughout California and beyond."

This latest relationship builds on the alliance CODA Automotive has forged with GE Energy's Industrial Solutions business. CODA Automotive identified the GE WattStation(i) Wall Mount as its EV charging station of choice. The WattStation Wall Mount is a fast, easy-to-use Level 2 EV charger that can charge a vehicle in as little as four to eight hours compared to standard overnight charging.

Available at CODA showrooms across California, the 2012 CODA is the first all-electric five-passenger, compact sedan with full rear seating and trunk space that provides a range of up to 125 miles. More information can be found at www.codaautomotive.com.
