Toyota partners with Lyft to provide drivers with hydrogen-powered Mirai rentals in Vancouver

Toyota Canada and Lyft Canada announced a unique partnership today allowing drivers to rent the Toyota Mirai, a hydrogen-powered zero emission vehicle.

In collaboration with Toyota Credit Canada and their new proof-of-concept KINTO Share program, eligible Lyft drivers can pick up the Mirai at one of three dealerships in Metro Vancouver. Drivers will pay $198 per week plus taxes and fees, with the payment including insurance, maintenance, and unlimited kilometers.

“Toyota’s KINTO Share program is proud to partner with Lyft to demonstrate a zero-emission mobility-as-a-service model in another important step toward achieving our global sustainability objectives,” said Mitchell Foreman, Director of Advanced and Connected Technologies at Toyota Canada. “This proof-of-concept project also allows more Canadians to experience hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles first-hand, demonstrating their viability and efficiency, especially for fleets.”

Metro Vancouver is a good place to launch this partnership. Hydrogen refuelling stations are few and far between with just five across all of Canada. Fortunately, three of them are located in Vancouver.

The Toyota Mirai can be refuelled in five minutes and offers up to 500km of range on a full tank.
