Our Vehicles

Our Vehicle Fleet

coP110414-5The Honda Jazz has been a part of Geeks on Wheels since 2007, transporting our mobile computer technicians to the homes and businesses of technologically frustrated locals.

The Jazz was originally chosen over competitors for its low emissions and reduced running costs. It is one of the most clean & fuel efficient vehicles of its class, meeting the EURO 4 emission level and LEV II (Low Emissions Vehicle) standards.

 

And…coP110414-1 we are committed to technology that improves the environment we live in.

Therefore we will be continuing our endeavour to significantly cut road pollution and damaging particulate release by progressively upgrading our fleet to new Jazz Hybrids as and when they become available in New Zealand. These new vehicles incorporate Honda’s Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) hybrid system that combines an advanced electric motor with a conventional petrol engine. This will make a significant difference as these new generation vehicles can (in some conditions) run completely under electric power.

Car Naming

PacManFrom 2011 onwards, we introduced our new Geeks on Wheels logo. With such strong imagery, our cars have acquired something of a cult status in and around local communities, with people posing for photos whenever our wheels are stationary!

And now each Geeks on Wheels vehicle can be identified by a unique name that reflects a nostalgic aspect of a previous Information Technology era – from computer & gaming system names, operating system names to legendary gaming characters and well know computing acronyms.
