Before the iM even has an opportunity to debut Scion is already moving beyond that. Scion corporate manager Dave Harbuck let it be known that Scion will have two new production models on hand at the New York auto show next April.
The first car will most definitely be the productionized iM, however the second he has remained coy on. What Harbuck did say however was that it makes sense for Scion to leverage Toyota's expansive global portfolio.
So what's the early speculation? Well for one there is the Aygo city runabout however there are doubts about its ability to meet US crash ratings. Other options potentially include the Verso, a 7 seat tall hatchback, or the Urban Cruiser which is essentially an xD with AWD.
Sales peaked at 173,000 units in 2006 and last year they dwindled down to a meagre 68,000. Whatever Scion ends up bringing to New York the reality is things cannot get much worse...
