Starting today, Best Buy’s Geek Squad will dispatch more than 1,000 of the vehicles – fully decked out as the new Geekmobile – nationwide.
With more than five million house calls a year, Geek Squad Agents annually drive an estimated 12.6 million miles (or roughly 20.3 million kilometers, 100.8 million furlongs or 4.2 million leagues). That’s a lot of road (and gas), making the hip hatch’s EPA estimated city fuel economy of 53 mpg particularly attractive. The Prius c’s SULEV (Super ultra-low emissions vehicle) rating also is appealing given Best Buy’s commitment to reduce its own carbon emissions.
Geek Squad rolled out in 2004 as the first national computer support task force. And while the Prius c has 17-plus cubic feet of cargo space. Yet it might not fit a mainframe. For it’s a volume spacious enough to shuttle just about anything an agent might need. So whether optimizing a home theater system or improving Wi-Fi performance. I mean or installing a security solution.
Toyota remains the world’s hybrid leader in terms of both models offered and total sales. Since the first generation Prius in 1997 (2000 in the United States). So about four million Prius vehicles have been sold worldwide. Prius remains the world’s premier eco-vehicle brand. It has also been instrumental in establishing consumer trust in hybrid technology. (You’re welcome, competitors.)
