During the 2013 New York Auto Show, Scion announced its 10-year anniversary celebrations with plans to release five special edition models. Plans are to release a limited-production version of each vehicle in the lineup which will be called the Scion 10 Series.

“The Scion 10 Series celebrates 10 years of the brand’s passionate approach, iconic products and success inviting a new, younger buyer to the Toyota family. Scion heads into its second decade revved up by a strong product line that continues to stand out on the road”, said the vice president of Scion Division for Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A., Doug Murtha. The Scion 10 series cars include the FR-S, tC, iQ, xB and xD models. All of these models will be available exclusively in Silver Ignition. They will also be equipped with LED-infused logos which illuminates when the car is locked.

The special edition series will also feature silver seat belts, solar-powered illuminated shift knob, revised instrument cluster display and the iQ, xB and xD will stand out further from the outside with darker alloy wheels. In addition, the FR-S receives HID headlights, dual-zone automatic climate control and a push-button ignition.

In total, just 10,000 Scion 10 Series models are planned, and each will be identifiable with a sequentially numbered badge inside the car. The redesigned 2014 tC will get the most of the special-edition models with 3,500 units, while other new models like the FR-S and iQ will be restricted to just 2,500 units and 900 units, respectively. The original Scion, the xB, will get 2,100 Scion 10 Series models, and the xD will round out the 10,000-unit run with 1,000 models being produced.

The 10-series models will arrive in showrooms this June and additional details on these models will be announced close to their launch. Continue to follow us on Twitter and get the latest news on our Facebook page.
