Autonomy extends to another California market

Autonomy continues to expand in the Golden State.

The electric vehicle subscription company – which claims it’s the “cheapest, fastest and easiest way to get a Tesla Model 3” – said in a press release on Wednesday that its services had been launched in Bakersfield, California.

Autonomy launched in Los Angeles in January, followed by San Francisco Bay Area in March and San Diego in April.

Autonomy is live statewide and is currently being activated in local markets, with plans to add another delivery center and more states soon, a company spokesperson said via email. . There are more than 500 subscribers to the platform, the spokesperson said.

Its expansion into California comes at a time when gas prices in the state are at record highs and well above the national average, based on AAA data. Autonomy said in the statement that fuel costs in Bakersfield, in particular, are now above $6.25 a gallon.

It’s a value proposition to switch to an electric vehicle, says Autonomy.

“Gasoline prices continue to soar and set new records every day in California and the rest of the country,” Autonomy Founder and CEO Scott Painter said in the statement.

“Consumers now have the choice to ditch their gas-powered cars to go electric and save 60% or more on fuel costs,” Painter said. “Electric vehicles used to be out of reach for many consumers, but with a subscription, that’s no longer the case.”

Autonomy Co-Founder and President George Bauer added, “Autonomy is all about easy and affordable access to mobility. Launching in all regions of California is important to us, especially as we unlock access to electric vehicles, which was once incredibly out of reach for many consumers.

“Getting an electric vehicle doesn’t have to be expensive, it doesn’t require a perfect credit score, and it doesn’t have to be forever,” Bauer said. “With Autonomy, each person can customize the payment and duration of their subscription, on their own terms, from month to month.”
