If your job requires you to be on the road day after day like the support technicians of the Best Buy Geek Squad, then you understand the need for a fuel-efficient and agile vehicle. Making house calls for sick computers or ailing entertainment systems means the Geek Squad puts on plenty of miles, and what better vehicle to meet their needs than the energetic and efficient 2016 Toyota Prius c.
In a move that will benefit individual Geek Squad agents and the Best Buy corporation as a whole, the door-to-door tech gurus will get behind the wheel of a fleet of new Toyota Prius c models. News that the Geek Squad will employ the Toyota Prius c as the new Geekmobile has made us delve deeper into its fuel-efficient, compact hybrid design — our conclusions…
Why Did the Geek Squad Choose the Toyota Prius c?
Starting in April of 2016, the Geek Squad will hit the road in 1,000 Toyota Prius c Geekmobiles across the country. With new Geek Squad graphics emblazoned across the energetic hybrid, the Toyota Prius c was the logical choice for the national customer support task force. Each year, Geek Squad technicians drive more than 12.6 million miles going door to door and will visit more than 13,000 homes each day. This translates to a lot of money being spent on fuel and excessive carbon emissions. A fleet of new Toyota Prius c models will have a positive impact on these statistics.

A compact variation of the redesigned 2016 Toyota Prius, the Toyota Prius c is tailor-made for stop-and-go driving in urban areas.

Paired with an efficient continuously variable transmission, the Toyota Prius c makes an incredible 53 mpg in the city and 46 mpg on the highway.
An added benefit of the new Geekmobile is its environmentally-friendly design. Classified as a Super Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle, the Toyota Prius c fits into the Best Buy strategy to lower corporate carbon emissions. Best Buy officials believe the new Geek Squad fleet of Toyota Prius c models will cut harmful emissions by as much as 50 percent. This cut in harmful emissions will help Best Buy lower corporate emissions by as much as 45 percent by the year 2020.
Built on a five-door hatchback platform, the Toyota Prius c is ideal for Geek Squad technicians. With 17.1 cubic feet of cargo space and an easy-access hatchback design, the Toyota Prius c can handle all of the gear required by technicians.
