Autonomy to Scale Electric Vehicle Subscriptions Nationally; AutoNation to be Dealer of Record and Provide Services

  • AutoNation to assist Autonomy with the acquisition of up to 20,000 electric vehicles from all automaker brands over the next 12-18 months and provide vehicle preparation and delivery as well as service and reconditioning to the Autonomy fleet.
  • Partnership provides Autonomy the infrastructure to immediately scale nationally.

SANTA MONICA, Calif. & FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Autonomy, the nation’s largest electric vehicle subscription company, has partnered with AutoNation, Inc. (NYSE:AN), America’s largest and most admired automotive retailer.


The partnership will support Autonomy’s electric vehicle product expansion from the Tesla Model 3 into several automaker brands as well as its geographic expansion across the United States, leveraging AutoNation’s nationwide footprint. As Autonomy’s “Dealer of Record,” AutoNation will support Autonomy’s planned acquisition, over the next 12-18 months of up to 20,000 electric vehicles from automakers that produce the most sought-after electric vehicles. AutoNation will provide vehicle preparation and delivery services in connection with Autonomy customer activations, as well as maintenance, repair, and reconditioning services for its growing fleet of subscription vehicles.

“AutoNation and Autonomy’s shared vision for how consumers gain access to electric vehicles is the basis for this partnership and has again shown that AutoNation is among the most innovative and forward-thinking retailers in the world,” said Scott Painter, founder and CEO of Autonomy. “This partnership allows Autonomy to drastically accelerate and diversify its vehicle lineup with a 20,000-vehicle order over the next 12-18 months while paving a clear and aggressive path for national expansion. Just as importantly, this also allows Autonomy to remain capital efficient and infrastructure light as we advance our mission to accelerate the adoption of EVs and scale subscriptions profitably.”

Autonomy’s subscription model offers the cheapest, fastest, and easiest way to get a Tesla Model 3 and Y, and soon other models and brands. Autonomy provides an easy and affordable option for those seeking an electric vehicle that does not require the long-term debt or commitment that comes with buying or leasing. Autonomy drivers have the flexibility to subscribe month to month after a three-month minimum hold period. Today, Autonomy customers can subscribe to an electric vehicle entirely in app (Google Play Store or Apple App Store) and customize their monthly payment to meet their budget.
