On February 3, 2016 Toyota killed off the Scion brand after 13 years. The good news is ToyoTechs will keep servicing the Scion brand for many years to come. Many of the Scion brand’s vehicles will be re-badged under the Toyota brand name. The FR-S sports car, iA sedan and iM 5-door hatchback will become Toyota models. Toyota will also cancel the Scion tc compact hatchback coupe
Scions fate seems to be directly tied to falling gas prices. With so many buyers moving back into the larger cars, crossovers and trucks the sales of Scions were less in 2015 than in 2014. It shares a commonality with the former Saturn brand, that GM launched in the early 90’s to attract younger buyers. It is was very difficult even with the strength of the Toyota name behind Scion to start up a new brand.
ToyoTechs has been working on Scion’s for many years and believes that having been built by Toyota that they are good sturdy vehicles that will run for a long time. We will continue to service and repair Scions for many years to come.
ToyoTechs wants you to comfortable with the knowledge that if Toyota build it (Scions and Lexus) we will be here to service and repair it.
