Can't recall when last i've seen a Scion tC

Seems like they're going to let the tC's current gen run its course till it hits the chopping block.

We have one of the Release Series tC's here at the dealership. Black on top and Hot Lava below with a slew of interior Orange accents.

Has it at least been getting a lot of eyes on it from those walking in to see whats available?

Never knew he lived in Phoenix, I noticed that with vehicles like this, the further south you go the more common they are. I bet down in Cali they're just as common.

curiosity, do you ever see what kind of people are driving them? I presume in phoenix most people have dark tint...
Mostly younger folks, like Scion's marketing depicts. I think the smaller size keeps away the older crowd -- they're buying the roomy xB.

Lots of tC in Cali. I think Scion originally launched in California first, so they have a strong dealer network there. And Toyota products have always sold very well in California.

In fact, I want to say that California is Scion's #1 selling state...anyone have figures on that?

Already sold - lasted about a week on the lot.

That's true, the xB was only available in CA in 2003 then nationwide in 2004.

In Canada they were a bit hesitant from what I can remember, and I can see why since now you still don't spot many of them in even the biggest most populated Canadian cities.

I think it really comes down to dealer presence. I didn't see a whole lot of them when I was living in Oklahoma. The dealers down there are more interested in Toyota than Scion. I recently moved back to Iowa and see a bunch of them here, but the local dealer has some very Scion-esque sales people.

Makes sense.

Phoenix is very Scion friendly.

That's what I figured.
For the most part I see a lot of Lexus/Toyota/Scion vehicles in the south, the more uncommon ones are always their, from old to new.

they still sell a good chunk of tC's too each year...
back when they refreshed it, little was accomplished, if they did more things to get a sustained response from the market, things could have been better.

same can be said for other scion vehicles.

car and driver was right:

Scion’s 2003 launch was propelled to unexpected (even within Toyota) heights by the original xB, the car that made cubes cool. The little xB was a fantastic value and far outsold its initial estimates. But since the xB’s bloat into a small minivan and a “redesign” of the tC coupe that barely distinguishes it from the original, Scion’s numbers have deflated.
