Toyota to Drop Scion iQ as Smallest Car Fails to Win U.S. Buyers

Toyota Motor Corp. plans to drop its smallest model, the Scion iQ, after the car’s size, price and fuel economy failed to attract U.S. consumers.

U.S. sales of the iQ fell 50 percent to 2,040 last year after Toyota gave dealers more leeway on submitting orders based on demand, said Doug Murtha, Scion’s brand chief. Production of the xD ended in July, leaving Scion with four models.
