The Scion xB (chassis code NCP31) was one of two models introduced to the North American market under the Scion brand name. It is essentially an Americanized version of the Japanese Toyota bB which was introduced to Japan in July of 1999 as a new-for-2000 model. The Japanese bB was a success, and after a few years was refreshed for the Japanese 2003 model year. The xB was largely unmodified from this new bB for our market, converted to left-hand-drive and equipment changes made to conform to USDOT safety and emissions standards.

Base pricing for the xB was $13,880 for the manual and $14,680 for the auto.

The xB was first introduced to America as the Scion bbX concept at the 2003 New York Auto Show. The bbX a nearly-production version of the Scion xB that was released to the California market in June of 2003, sharing a 108hp 1.5L VVT-i engine (1NZ-FE) with the Scion xA and Toyota Echo. It was sold exclusively in California for several months so that dealership quality control could be carefully fine-tuned and to spark demand in the rest of the country.

In September of 2003 the Scion brand hit the east coast and the south. States along the Atlantic and the southern border states from Florida to Texas saw Scion dealerships pop up. Then in June of 2004 the rest of the country finally saw the Scion become available.

Scion dealerships were integrated into Toyota dealerships, but had seperate showrooms featuring high-tech flatscreen displays.

The beginning of the 2006 calendar year saw some small changes for the last year of production. The interior seat fabric was changes and a new steering wheel with integrated audio controls was added. Two new colors appear: Salsa Red replaces Black Cherry Pearl and Shadow Mica replaces Camouflage Metallic.

Base pricing roses $150 to $14,030 for the manual and $14,830 for the auto.

The Release Series line of Scion vehicles was a limited-release option package that began with the Scion xB RS1 in March 2004, continued with the Scion xB RS2 in March of 2005, the Scion xB RS3 in February 2006 and the Scion xB RS4 in November of 2006. Only 2100 RS1s, 2500 RS2s, 2200 RS3s and 2500 RS4s were produced, each with a plaque mounted inside the vehicle stating the edition number. Each release got it’s own exclusive special color not found on any other xB: the RS1 was dipped in Hot Lava, the RS2 was layered with Solar Yellow, the RS3 is a unique Envy Green and the RS4 paint is a color-shifting Maziora Torched Penny.

Interesting Note: The last seven RS1 xBs had the number plates lost, so they new plates were manufactured with the numbers 2101A-2107A.
