2010 New York: 2011 Lexus CT 200h coming to U.S. in early 2011

  • Key Competitors: Let us know if you think of any.
  • Power: 1.8L VVT-i gasoline engine mated to an electric-motor fueled by nickel-metal hydride batteries.
  • Availability: Early 2011.
  • Pricing: TBA.

Lexus says that its new “CT 200h isn”t just about being a hybrid, it”s about having fun,”

“The stylish CT 200h has an attitude and driving dynamic unlike any other Lexus hybrid,” said Mark Templin, Lexus division group vice president and general manager. “It will excite eco-conscious, young consumers and symbolize urban, luxury living.”

Yet it’s strange to us how younger consumers will be excited by a hatchback hybrid carrying a 1.8L engine while Lexus’ HS 250h carries a 2.4L engine. Either way, let’s hope it’s priced cheaper than the $34,650 HS 250h – otherwise younger buyers won’t be too satisfied.
