Autonomy today announced that it is expanding its geographic footprint to South East Florida, including Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach. This follows the launch of Autonomy’s service in the state of California – which has the largest share of electric vehicle registrations in the country. Florida ranks second behind California with the next highest number of electric vehicles on the road making it a compelling next expansion state.
Autonomy’s subscription model offers a way to get an electric vehicle and does not require the long-term debt or commitment that comes with buying or leasing. Additionally, Autonomy vehicles are available for delivery or pickup within weeks, compared to the months-long wait for a loan or lease. Today, Autonomy offers the Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y and will soon add the full Tesla lineup, among other makes and models.
“Expanding our service geographically beyond California represents a major scaling moment for our business,” said Scott Painter, founder and CEO of Autonomy. “EV registrations and charging stations in Florida are growing at a tremendous pace, signaling a growing population that’s eager to make the switch to an EV and the infrastructure to make it convenient to do so. With EVs still costing 20-40% more than gas-powered vehicles, affordability is a major barrier that Autonomy’s subscription model addresses for EV shoppers.”
Autonomy will leverage its recently announced national partnership with AutoNation for vehicle preparation and delivery services in connection with customer activation, as well as maintenance, repair, and reconditioning services for Autonomy’s growing subscription fleet of electric vehicles. As well as expanding geographically, Autonomy is also expanding its fleet of vehicles. In August Autonomy ordered 23,000 electric vehicles from 17 different global automakers, with the order totaling more than $1.2 billion.
