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.
