Created by the Toyota Motor Company in 2002, Scion is a brand of vehicles specifically designed for the US marketplace. The brand itself is directed at the more youthful “Generation Y” consumers and features a number of interesting, unique designs. Using unusual marketing techniques, Scion has enjoyed considerable success over the years in appealing to this new generation of drivers.
The first concept cars to be released by Scion made their initial appearance at the 2002 New York Auto Show. The bbX and the ccX concept vehicles became the xB and tC respectively and become staples of the Scion line. Originally launched in California in June, 2003, the xB and tC did not reach the East Coast for another eight months. By June, 2004, the xA and the xB were subsequently released nationwide. The xA was a five-door subcompact hatchback with either five speed manual or four speed automatic transmission. The xB was more of a subcompact wagon that used the distinctive “boxy” shape along with the smooth lines of Scion parts.
The success of these vehicles with their distinctive look led to the development of the tC in 2005. Built off the Toyota Avensis platform, the tC was a compact coupe model with a hatchback trunk and an unusually long wheelbase. This added to the roomy interior of the vehicle and made it more appealing to its target audience. The xD replaced the xA in 2007, it was a similarly styled five door subcompact hatchback version that was updated for the times. In 2009, the xD was named by Consumer Reports as the most reliable new vehicle of the year.
The secret to Scion’s success lies in part with the “no haggle” pricing system that is also used by Saturn. This successful marketing strategy is very appealing to younger customers and has helped Scion succeed. Plus, Scion vehicles are modestly priced with only a single trim version available as well. Innovative advertising techniques, great customer service, reliable vehicles and unique design has contributed to the overall success of the Scion line.
There is little doubt that Scion vehicles are some of the most recognizable in the world. Their unusual shape, functional design, modest price and unique appeal has made them highly popular with Generation Y buyers.

Scion Lighting Accessories and Parts lights also come with distinctive advantages as well. Scion LED headlights for example are clear, bright and illuminate the road while causing far less glare for oncoming drivers. LEDs also use but a fraction of the energy required by traditional incandescent lights. However, the most important aspect is that LED bulbs are shock resistant and highly durable, lasting up to 100,000 continuous hours or longer under normal conditions. This means that the next set of LED lights you purchase for your Scion may be the last.
