Background on Scion
Targeting the millennial market, Toyota debuted the Scion marque in 2003 for its single-trim sports compact vehicles with a range of customization options. Scion was sold first in California by selected dealers and then nationwide the following year; by 2010, the brand was already available across Canada. Offering 150 accessories that were sold individually, Scion was a hit among younger drivers looking to personalize their cars to match their tastes and lifestyles without haggling for the right price. By the time the brand was discontinued and absorbed into Toyota in 2016, Scion sold over a million cars in North America.
