Autonomy platform now available in Florida
From the Golden State to the Sunshine State.
Autonomy has added its first markets outside of California, announcing Tuesday that the electric vehicle subscription platform is now available in Southeast Florida.
That includes Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach.
Florida is second only to California in terms of EV population, the company said.
“Expanding our service geographically beyond California represents a major scaling moment for our business,” Autonomy founder and CEO Scott Painter said in a news release. “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.”
Georg Bauer, co-founder and president at Autonomy, added: ““Providing affordable and flexible access to an EV is at the core of Autonomy’s existence. We are excited for Florida residents to experience a new way to get into an electric vehicle and to support Florida’s momentum toward EVs.”
Painter is among the speakers at Used Car Week, which starts Monday in San Diego.
On Nov. 17, he will be participate on an electric vehicle panel with Cherokee Media Group’s Joe Overby and AutoNation’s Gialuca Camplone during the National Remarketing Conference portion of Used Car Week.
Painter is also slated for a fireside chat with Steve Greenfield of Automotive Ventures during the NAVIcon portion of the event. That Nov. 17 session will explore “Building Visionary Companies and the Importance of Strategic Fundraising.”
