Scion Owners Club of Ottawa
As of 2017 model year, Scions will be rebranded as Toyotas. Toyota is doing away with its Scion brand, as the automaker repositions the line of funky small vehicles which launched more than a decade ago to attract young North American buyers.
Toyota said its decision to scrap the brand was "made in response to customers' needs." Scion launched in the U.S. in 2003. The brand was not introduced to Canada until 2010.
Toyota said it will rebadge three of its 2017 model-year Scions as Toyotas, beginning in August. One model, the tC coupe, will no longer be produced as of that month. Scion sales in Canada and the U.S. peaked at 173,034 vehicles in 2006, but have fallen back
Scion is no more. Dead. Fin. We’ve seen this coming for years, but if we’re being honest, everyone should have seen it from day one. On Scion’s first official day of sales, in 2003, it sold a car called the xA. And the xA can explain the death of Scion, more than 12 years later.
I know it sounds absurd that a 12-year-old car, produced for only two years, could be responsible for the death of an entire brand. It’s not like all of Scion’s managers were mowed down by unintentionally-accelerating xAs, however much they may or may not have deserved it. It’s what it represented.
Scion was always supposed to be Toyota’s brand for the Youths, whatever that meant.
