Scion to axe xB, xD models

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 26, 2012

Scion has announced that the highly popular xB will finally end its run. When the brand was initially launched in 2003, it had emphasized that each model would be terminated after one life cycle.

Scion ahd wanted its models to use the “one and done” philosophy. But Scion named exceptions because of the rising demand for a few of its models like the xB and tC.

The company now reveals that the xB will be saying goodbye and will take its place alongside the xA and the disliked xD at the graveyard. Scion specifically said that the xB and xD won’t have a new generation and will make way for new models under the Scion name.

According to Jack Hollis, Vice President of Scion told Ward’s Auto, there are no plans to directly replace the xB or xD.

This would signal the end of the box-shaped Scion model. Scion didn’t say when these new models would be seen but it’s confident that the FR-S would be around for at least two more years.
