Default CODA Getting On Track?

Upbeat article on CODA from Wired. CODA just opened a new store in LA.

The CODA is interesting.

Power comes from a 100 kilowatt (134 horsepower) electric motor with 221 pound-feet of torque
That's more torque than the Focus EV (181 lb-ft) or the Leaf (210 lb-ft), though less than the Volt (273 lb-ft).

The carís biggest selling point is its massive 36 kilowatt-hour lithium iron phosphate battery. Thatís 50 percent larger than the pack in the Nissan Leaf, with a similar jump in range. Although Coda claims a max range of 150 miles, expect an EPA-certified figure of 110.
For people with a longer commute this may be the ticket. Focus and Leaf are at 23kwh and 24 kwh respectively.

The car starts at $45,795 before the $7,500 tax credit. It has a 6.6 kilowatt on-board charger. The one rub is the "active air heating and cooling through a proprietary battery management system." Air heating and cooling? What is that? A fan? Not quite sure what they mean here. Until Li batts are proven, I feel like liquid heating and cooling is the safer bet.
