Subscriptions, A New Way.

Subscriptions, A New Way.

A great many of you came to Fēnix hoping to find help with the high cost of battery replacements for your EVs, and our discussion of an affordable subscription option looked like the solution you've been waiting for. For the last several weeks and months, we've been saying that we're just around the corner from launching our subscription service, today the wait is over! We spent months trying to find a way to make our future subscription service fit our CPO Battery solution, we wanted to push our future plans into today's short term answer, and unfortunately, we simply couldn't…

A common question…

One of the most common questions people ask us is related to transferability for both reservations and for our subscription that is coming very soon. We recognize that as much as everyone seems to love their Leafs, life can change quickly and cars often change owners. With this in mind, we plan to make transfers easy for our customers. We also hope that our future battery architecture will also improve resale value for our customer's cars, which also means we need to make transitions as simple as possible. For now, it's just as simple as letting us know you plan…

Very Low Battery?

Very Low Battery?

The wait is almost over! I had a great meeting today with our subscription partner that answered the MOST ANTICIPATED question being asked this year: When will we finally be able to sign up for your battery subscription? If all goes well, we'll be opening up signups for CPO Battery Subscriptions next week with deliveries starting in September! We hope to make this screen a more distant memory for everyone. So, full disclosure, we announced that we were close to this announcement several weeks back, but unfortunately, the capital partner we were working with fell through. At first glance, that…

The Subscription Challenge

The Subscription Challenge

In the startup world, there are buzzwords you hear very often, words like "disruption" and the very over-used "innovative". And we're the first to admit that we consider our battery subscription model both innovative and disruptive, but the reason those words are heard in startup so often is that they have both good and bad connotations. As consumers, we're always hoping for new solutions that make our lives easier and ideally are more affordable than traditional options, so the good can certainly be obvious to us when considering them. But what are the bad things about these words? Why should…

Storytime. (Our motivation.)

Storytime. (Our motivation.)

I started writing today's post intending it to simply be another progress update but had to pause and step away for a customer phone call before I finished. When I came back to finish it up, I realized I couldn't stop thinking about what our customer said. So I'm starting this post over with a different focus: Stories from Fēnix customers. Recently I've been talking to our CPO Battery customers on the phone, and over the last year I've likely talked with a hundred or more of our customers and followers, and I have been privileged enough to hear their…

Answering CPO Questions

Answering CPO Questions

In discussing with our team, we've found people are asking some of the same questions, so I'm posting to try to help clarify everything. I also want to thank one of our customers, let us call him "JD", for asking all of them in one email to us. Aside from a couple of edits to respect JD's privacy, his questions are as follows: How does this work from a payment standpoint? Am I paying the $600 I owe for the install for a CPO battery to be installed temporarily, switching this one out for the new battery at no additional…

New Fēnix partners help launch subscriptions.

New Fēnix partners help launch subscriptions.

Yesterday we updated our site to share the much-anticipated details of our solution to the problem of battery replacement affordability: The Fēnix Subscription. When we set out to change the EV Battery landscape, it was our goal to solve the biggest problems facing modern electric vehicles. In our research, we found the biggest obstacles to EV adoption were all due to a universally wrong approach to battery! From Chevy to Tesla, from Nissan to Porsche, they're all making the same mistakes when it comes to integrating the battery into the vehicle. Those big battery problems are: The battery cost is…
