Scion, a subdivision of Toyota Motor Company, offers a fresh approach to designing, building and retailing cars in Canada.

Scion’s website states, “With Toyota behind us we are building quality cars with unique body styles and letting our owners personalize them with a variety of different accessories. We also aimed to simplify the buying process so you have fun shopping for a Scion and a great ownership experience to follow.”

Castlegar Toyota product advisors and technicians will undergo product training, over the coming months,  to ensure that they are completely familiar with Scion vehicles and requirements.

“This is another feather in the cap of Castlegar Toyota,” Kalawsky said. “We pride ourselves on being innovative and searching out new ways to bring relevant and exciting products and services to our customers. We believe Scion is going to fit in very nicely with our current offerings, while adding something new and fresh for car buyers and enthusiasts in the Kootenays.”

By this summer, Castlegar Toyota expects to begin retailing 2015 Scion vehicles. The existing showroom will have space dedicated to giving customers an intimate look at Scion vehicles.
