Scion has announced the new special edition 2012 xB Release Series 9.0 that will arrive in dealer showrooms in October 2011. The model will be offered exclusively in Hot Lava and will be priced from $18,110 when equipped with a manual gearbox and $19,060 when equipped with an automatic transmission. It will be limited to only 1,500 units.
The xB’s new Hot Lava exterior color will be combined with a unique honeycomb patterned lower grille that cleverly incorporates the brand name "Scion" into the mix.

The xB wears an illuminated badge that is individually numbered.
