Electric Vehicle subscription service

VICTORVILLE – Autonomy, announced Thursday, that their electric vehicle subscription service is now available to High Desert communities, including Victorville, Adelanto, Apple Valley, Hesperia, Phelan, and Barstow. According to Autonomy, their monthly subscription costs less than Tesla’s own leasing or financing plans.

“With gas prices continuing to climb and putting a strain on households, there’s never been a more compelling time to get an electric vehicle,” said Autonomy founder and CEO Scott Painter. “Consumers are beginning to fully realize the benefits of driving an electric vehicle, and we’re excited to be offering a more affordable, flexible way of getting one.”

The company offers the Tesla Model 3 that is available for delivery or pickup within weeks, compared with the six- to nine-month wait for a lease or loan.

Model 3 subscriptions range from $490 per month with an initial $4,900 start fee, to $1,000 per month with an initial $1,000 start fee. 

Autonomy’s monthly payment covers the traditional costs of ownership, including annual registration and licensing fees, routine maintenance, roadside assistance, and standard wear and tear on tires, which are all additional expenses with a traditional lease or loan.

Many people who live in the High Desert have long commutes across the region or down the Cajon Pass to the Inland Empire, Orange County, and Los Angeles. According to Autonomy, “commuters can ditch the high-priced gas and contribute to a more green commute”. The region has more than 200 charging locations, with 13 Tesla Superchargers placed along the I-15 and SR-14 highways. 

“Consumers need more options when it comes to accessing an electric vehicle,” said Autonomy Co-founder and President Georg Bauer. “Subscribing to a car today is what leasing was 40 years ago. Subscribing allows for month-to-month flexibility after an initial 3 month holding period and no long-term debt. It’s an exciting time in the automotive industry, with more options for people than ever.”
