The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration tested the 2012 Coda electric sedan, and here is the good news about the results: the Coda scored five stars for the side crash and rollover tests, and four stars overall. What kept it from a five-star overall score is the bad news: a two-star result for its frontal impact test.
NHTSA issued a recall for the 2012 Coda over its side and window airbags, so there are two Codas listed in the test results – a pre-recall sedan that got no rating for the side impact test and no overall rating, and the post-recall sedan that was rated in every category.
To be even more precise on that frontal impact rating, the male crash dummy driver was left with a two-star score, the female crash dummy passenger got four stars. Judging from the videos, the frontal impact doesn't look like a two-star catastrophe, but NHTSA knows better than us and all of the deceleration and injury details are in these reports if you want to know everything.
If you just want to watch, however, videos of the crash tests can be found just below.
