Toyota Motor Europe has confirmed that the C-HR crossover is heading to production.

The production version of the C-HR crossover will make its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and the vehicle will be built at Toyota Motor Manufacturing in Sakarya, Turkey. The model will also feature a new-generation hybrid powertrain that will be produced at Toyota Motor Manufacturing U.K.’s engine plant in Deeside, Wales.

Although Toyota Europe didn’t confirm in the release if the production C-HR would head to the U.S., it did say that the “production destination for the vehicles will be greater Europe and regions outside Europe. Individual export countries are being considered at this time.”

The C-HR concept was shown at the 2015 L.A. Auto Show as a Scion model, and it was expected to be branded a Scion when it arrived in the U.S. But Toyota has since killed off the Scion brand, meaning it will be offered with a Toyota badge.
