FREDERICK, Colo.; UQM TECHNOLOGIES a developer of alternative energy technologies, announced today that the all-electric CODA four-passenger sedan powered by a UQM� PowerPhase� propulsion system has been selected as a finalist by Green Car Journal for its prestigious 2010 Green Car Vision Award�. The winner of the award will be announced at the Washington Auto Show on January 26, 2010.

�In the early years of commercialization, that requires innovative thinking and often some risk taking to achieve the goal, whether it�s high efficiency, petroleum displacement, emissions reduction, or a combination of the three, the finalists for our 2010 Green Car Vision Award� epitomize the can-do spirit that will bring a new and more environmentally positive generation of vehicles to our highways,� said Ron Cogan, Editor and Publisher of the Green Car Journal and Editor of GreenCar.com.

In July, the company completed a ten year agreement with CODA Automotive to supply PowerPhase� electric propulsion systems for the CODA all-electric sedan. The CODA sedan is anticipated to carry a 4-5-star crash worthiness rating. Powered by a 33.8 kWh lithium-ion battery with a real-world range of 90 to 120 miles depending on individual driving habits, the CODA sedan travels far enough between charges to satisfy 94% of daily driving routines. The onboard charger plugs into a 110V or a 220V outlet and can charge for a 40-mile commute in approximately two hours (full charge in less than six hours at 220V). CODA Automotive plans to introduce the vehicle in the California market in 2010.
