The redesigned Scion tC coupe from Toyota is expected to double sales and to revive the youth-centered brand, according to Scion’s vice president Jack Hollis who spoke during a media briefing at Oakland University in suburban Detroit. Scion has set a target in 2011 to sell 35,000 to 45,000 of its coupes.

Sales had peaked in 2006 with 79,125 units. In 2009, Scion sold 18,000 tCs, a 56 percent drop from the year before. Bloomberg News reported that last March, Hollis had forecast sales of 40,000 to 50,000 in 2011. Scion has high expectations for the redesigned tC, which will arrive in showrooms on Oct. 1. The tC has accounted for about 40 percent of Scion's overall sales since it was launched six years ago.

Coupe sales have continued to drop this year, with a 36 percent drop through August, to 8,848 vehicles. Nonetheless, Hollis claims that the decrease in sales is typical for a sporty subcompact car this late in its product life cycle.

In order for the small Scion to be propelled to drift king position, however, the car had to have a major changeover, which included a totally new setup of its driveline by placing the power at the rear.
