Now Offering the Toyota Mirai, Zero-Emission, Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles
August 27, 2019 – San Bernardino, CA: Luxivair SBD at San Bernardino International Airport announces a new partnership with StratosShare, offering the very latest in clean-air technology to FBO customers. The zero-emission Toyota Mirai is now available to FBO customers for rent by the hour or by the day through StratosShare – the first Hydrogen Fuel Cell rental service of its kind in California. Luxivair SBD is committed to offering convenient transportation alternatives to its customers that are also environmentally mindful; the cars’ only emission is pure water.
“StratosShare’s goal is to make multimodal transportation as seamless as possible. That is why we chose to partner with Luxivair SBD because we wanted to provide a zero-emission alternative to the traditional rental car market by introducing an on-demand concept that can provide a vehicle within minutes, all from someone’s smartphone.” Says Jonathan Palacios-Avila, CEO/Co-Founder of StratosFuel, Inc. StratosShare is in the process of rolling out more rental locations throughout California, as well as including other hydrogen fuel cell models into their fleet. StratosShare is introducing more locations at their launch event on September 19th, 2019 at 10:00 AM at the Center for Environmental Research & Technology, University California Riverside.
Renting a Toyota Mirai is as simple as “walk up and go.” With the use of a smartphone application, users can reserve and unlock the vehicle as well as pay the rental fee all from their phone. Passengers and flight crew can head directly to their rental the moment they land; foregoing the need for traditional paperwork and vehicle inspections. When you’re done, simply park the car and go. No need for refueling or long lines to return your rental car. The rental fee for StratoShare includes insurance, fuel and maintenance, and, there’s no membership or annual fee required.
The Toyota Mirai is a trendsetting aerodynamic four-door luxury sedan that can be driven over 300 miles before refueling, making it convenient for quick trips around town, or just about anywhere in Southern California. Mirai, which means “the future” in Japanese, is a natural fit for Luxivair SBD. “We attribute the FBO’s growth to constant investments in our future, and we remain committed to offering our customers not only a five-star experience, but also the very latest in technology,” says Mark Gibbs, Director of Aviation for SBD International Airport.
“We invite our customers to experience the convenience of StratosShare with the latest in zero-emission technology,” says Wendy Bechtel, Luxivair SBD’s manager. “As with Luxivair SBD, the Mirai is futuristic, environmentally responsible, and exclusive; there are only about 6,000 of these new vehicles in all of California, and Luxivair SBD is the first among the state’s airports to offer pilots and flight crews access to this new vehicle.”
