Lexus CT 200h compact hybrid not planned for the U.S. for now
Even though the United States was the first country to get the Lexus brand (in 1989), the luxury Toyota brand will be ditching us with the upcoming Lexus CT 200h. Scheduled to make its debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show in March, Inside Line has learned that stateside consumers are unlikely to see the new compact hybrid.
“There are no plans, at present, to bring this vehicle to the U.S.,” Toyota spokesman Curt McAllister said.
Guess we’ll have to stick with the Lexus HS 25oh for now.
The Lexus CT 200h, which is based on the LF-Ch Concept, will be equipped with the second-generation Lexus Hybrid Drive technology. More details will be released next month.
