Starmobility

Starmobile also manufactures and sells buses, trailers, commercial trucks, and railcars under the Starmobility brand.

Buses

Starmobility offers several models and types of buses, from van buses to school buses to charter buses to city buses. Starmobility is one of the largest manufacturers of buses in the world. Roughly 85% of all Freedemian buses, including those owned by Greenleaf Bus Lines and city transit companies like QUARTA, have been manufactured by Starmobility.

Trains

Starmobile has also created some trains as well under the Starmobility name. However, since Freedemian systems tend to turn to Céleste, an Paroyan rail manufacturer, for their railcar needs, Starmobility's rail division has not gotten far off of the ground. Starmobility's main train works are light rail trains and trams.

SLV

SLV, or Starmobile Luxury Vehicles, is a now-defunct brand that used to be Starmobile's number one luxury brand. From 1950 to 1995, SLV led the pack in luxury vehicles (at least within Freedemia), known for their classic style luxury cars. However, in the late 90's Starmobile decided to take their luxury brand in a new direction. Jazzalini was launched in 2002, with a wider variety of cars that were both luxury and sporty, and SLV manufactured its last cars in 2005. However, SLV somewhat lives on- SLV's LeSilva was the primary inspiration for today's Jazzalini Classico.

Classic SLV Models (no longer in production)

  • LeSilva (now today's Jazzalini Classico)
  • McKay
  • Candace
  • Alegra (now today's Jazzalini Pianissimo, also inspiration for Allegro)
  • LeSandre

Racing Models

The Starmobile Magneta, Starmobile Ignition, Starmobile Skylight, and the Jazzalini Crescendo all have racing models, each with the name followed by RM (ex. MagnetaRM). They are very popular among Freedemian racers.

Starmobile is one of the manufacturers of the LBCAS. It has won the most LBCAS Manufacturers' Championships.

Research and Development

Freedemia has recently become a member of the International Council on Solar Energy. As such, Starmobile is looking into solar energy as an alternative power source for vehicles within ICSE standards. Starmobile hopes that by 2025 they will have a hybrid solar vehicle and by 2030 a fully solar vehicle.

Starmobile is also looking into several other alternative fuels. Natural gas and electricity versions are already available for most models.
