PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Holdings, Inc. (“DriveItAway”) (OTC Expert Market: CLCN), an industry leader in automotive dealer new mobility platforms with its revolutionary subscription to purchase technology, is excited to announce that it recently launched its electric vehicle subscription to ownership program with the Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid, working with a new dealer partner, the Chapman Auto Group. Focused on enabling all who want the benefits of immediately driving and owning an electric vehicle, DriveItAway is now rolling out the Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid (“PHEV”) in conjunction with Chapman Auto stores, with eight locations in the greater Philadelphia/New Jersey/Delaware region.
“This is a very special day for us, as not only are we expanding our program to Plug-In Hybrid vehicles with the new Ford Escape, we are also welcoming the esteemed Chapman Auto Group into our dealer focused program and platform, all in our mission to make EVs and PHEVs accessible for everyone today,” says John F.

Continued Roll Out with EV & PHEV Minded Dealers, Committed to “EVs for Everyone”
The Chapman Auto Group has been serving the Greater Philadelphia community with high quality sales and service for over half a century, with 8 locations, one of the largest auto groups in tri-state (PA/NJ/DE) area, with Ford, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Jeep, Nissan, Lincoln and Mazda franchises.
“One of the main aspects that sets the Chapman Auto Stores apart from the competition is our steadfast commitment to our employees, customers and local communities,” says Keane Storey, Director of Business Development for the Chapman Auto Stores. “We see DriveItAway’s technology and specifically the “EVs for Everyone” program as a way to enable more mainstream people to try out and buy EVs and PHEVs by spreading out the down payment while driving over an extended period of time before making the decision to purchase.
“In addition to the “EV for Everyone” program, we are looking at the DriveItAway platform to help us and our customers navigate the current landscape of vehicle shortages through short-term vehicle subscriptions while customers wait for their ordered vehicles. We think the flexibility of the technology allows dealerships a number of options with current and future inventory levels.”
DriveItAway Subscription with Optional Purchase - the Program for US EV Adoption
The DriveItAway Program is for manufacturers, car dealers and consumers, as it enables all consumers, regardless of credit score or cash down payment, to drive and buy the vehicle of his/her choice.
DriveItAway’s EV subscription program, launched in the Greater Philadelphia area, has now expanded to Connecticut, and Michigan. The Ford Escape PHEV joins the General Motors Bolt/Bolt EUV and the Polestar 2 in the DriveItAway fleet, which will soon be available in many more markets throughout the United States. DriveItAway’s unique ‘EVs for Everyone’ program is the perfect “vehicle” to reduce the barriers to EV adoption for all drivers, perfect for people who are interested in an EV, but are put off by the higher initial cost as compared to a gas vehicle, or are concerned about suitability and range anxiety.
DriveItAway Quarterly Reports and OTC Markets
DriveItAway acknowledges the delay in the filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2022 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The delay has been the result of the complexity of the accounting for the acquisition and disposition of assets that took place during that fiscal quarter. The Company continues to work diligently to finalize and file the Form 10-Q with the SEC within the next couple weeks, and we anticipate on filing our quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended June 20, 2022 shortly thereafter. Once these reports are filed with the SEC, the Company will apply for reinstatement to the OTCQB market.
DriveItAway is the first national dealer focused mobility platform that enables car dealers to sell more vehicles in a seamless way through eCommerce, with its exclusive “Pay as You Go” app-based subscription. DriveItAway provides a comprehensive turn-key, solutions driven program with proprietary mobile technology and driver app, insurance coverages and training to get dealerships up and running quickly and profitably in emerging online sales opportunities. The company is now introducing its ‘subscription to ownership’ platform to enable all consumers to drive and acquire new Electric Vehicles with its “EVs for Everyone” initiative.
