トヨタが、Mazda2をベースにした小型車をマツダのメキシコ工場で生産し、北米で販売するという話が、いよいよ形になるようです。

2012年11月9日付のトヨタとマツダから出されたリリースを振り返ると、

トヨタとマツダ、メキシコでの生産について合意

2013年度に稼動予定のマツダのメキシコ新工場において、2015年夏頃から、「Mazda2(日本名:マツダ デミオ)」をベースとしたトヨタブランドの小型車を年間5万台程度生産し、トヨタの販売店を通じて販売します。

てっきり、デミオと同じ5ドアハッチバックかと思ったら、セダンだというから驚きました。

公開されたティザー画像を見ると、グリルの中にある太い部分だったり、ボンネットとバンパーの境目だったりが、Mazda2ぽいかなと思えます。これがMazda2セダン。

World Debuts of Scion iM 5-door hatchback and Scion iA sedan

March 18, 2015

TORRANCE, Calif., March 18, 2015 – One look at Scion won’t be enough for guests attending the New York International Auto Show. It will take two looks (or more) to see the World Debuts from Scion. Both the Scion iM and the newly named Scion iA will be revealed on the eve of the show, March 31, 2015.

The Scion iM is a 5-door hatchback that combines maximum versatility with a sporty design and a fun-to-drive experience. Meanwhile the Scion iA sedan is designed to appeal to young people who need a little more practicality, but still want engaging styling and outstanding driving dynamics.

The “i” in the models’ names can stand for intriguing, individual, and easy on customers’ income. The “M” reflects the hatchback’s modern style and multi-faceted uses. Meanwhile the “A” for the sedan denotes the accommodating trunk and the aggressive styling.

“We’ve been eagerly waiting for this moment and are excited to introduce our new Scions in New York,” said Scion Group Vice President Doug Murtha. “Both the iM and the iA are tremendous additions to our line-up and will appeal to young people with different perspectives and needs. These cars represent the evolution of Scion and are kicking off a new wave of momentum for the brand.”
