Lexus to Unveil CT200h- World’s first full hybrid luxury compact at 2010 Geneva Motor Show

Lexus will unveil the five-door hybrid CT200h—the first Lexus vehicle in the premium-compact segment—at the 80th Geneva International Motor Show2, to be held in Geneva, Switzerland, for the press on March 2 and 3 and for the public from March 4 to 14. The Lexus CT200h is designed to open the way for a new Lexus era by combining the dynamism of sporty driving performance and styling with outstanding environmental performance, resulting in an experience that captivates driver and passenger alike. The Lexus CT200h has precise response thanks to its easily selectable Sport, Eco and other driving modes, while a sophisticated cockpit offers clear visibility and operability that enhances driving pleasure.

A newly developed high-rigidity body and strong yet flexible suspension, together with Lexus Hybrid Drive, are the basis for exhilarating handling performance and the pursuit of top-of-its-class3 environmental performance. The Japanese launch of the CT200h is scheduled for early 2011.
