GM and Ford win big share of EV purchase by startup subscription company Autonomy. The company, Autonomy, said Tuesday it placed an order for 23,000 EVs with 17 global automakers. Tesla still got the lion's share of the new order — 8,300 vehicles valued at $443 million.

Ford orders 1,800 EVs valued at $88 million. Volkswagen orders 2,200 EVs worth $107 million. Hyundai and Kia order 1,640 EVs each worth $74 million and $69 million. Rivian ordered 1,000 EV worth $72 million.

The 23,000-car order represents 1.2% of the projected U.S. EV production through the end of 2023. Autonomy said it plans to order from Stellantis in the future. GM and Ford did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Autonomy ordered the Mustang Mach-E and the F-150 Lightning from Ford. It also placed orders for GM's future EVs: the Chevrolet Silverado EV, Blazer EV, Equinox EV and GMC Hummer EV SUV. Autonomy listed the following as criteria for its order: MSRP range: $26,595 to $122,440.

The required minimum subscription time is three months. After that a customer can return the vehicle at any time with a 30-day notice. For a Tesla Model 3, the subscription costs can vary, but for $4,900 down, a person can drive a Model 3 for $490 a month.
