59 MPG Toyota iQ is Coming To the U.S. As a Scion!

Just yesterday I wrote about what I dubbed as “perhaps the ultimate city car,” the 59 MPG Toyota iQ 4-seater. I also bemoaned Toyota for releasing it in Europe but not in the US.

Well, turns out Toyota is bringing the iQ to the US under the Scion badge. Motor Trend, without citing sources, is claiming that the Scion-branded iQ will be shown to the public at the upcoming LA Auto Show next month.

No word on a release date yet, but I’ll be able to bring you more details on the iQ and many other upcoming car releases, both fuel-efficient and alternative, when I visit the LA Auto Show from November 17-20th.

So, keep your eyes tuned to Gas 2.0 for LA Auto Show news that’s related to the cars you care about.
