Report: Toyota to show Scion iQ hybrid for the U.S. in Detroit

Scion iQ Concept

At the 2010 Detroit Auto Show, Toyota will show its U.S. version of the iQ minicar in concept form (it’s the lime green teasers we’ve been seeing for the past couple of weeks). According to Inside Line, the Toyota iQ will arrive on the stateside badged as a Scion with a hybrid setup under the hood.

Power for the Scion iQ hybrid will come from a 1.5L gasoline engine mated to an electric-motor producing a total of 100 to 120-hp. It should return an estimated 60 mpg.

The five-door Scion iQ hybrid will hit dealerships in 2011 with prices starting around $15,000. Scion will also offer the car in three other variants including a sedan, convertible and a gasoline-power three-door.
