The CT200h is propelled by a hybrid drivetrain featuring a 1.8-litre petrol four-cylinder engine and a set of electric motors powered by a nickel-metal hydride battery pack. Unlike the IS, GS and LS sedans, the CT is driven via the front wheels.
The other dedicated hybrid Lexus model the HS250h — sold only in Japan and North America — sports a larger 2.4-litre engine.
Lexus isn't quoting either power or economy figures for the CT200h, but the powertrain is, on paper at least, identical to the one used in the latest Prius. So don't be too surprised if it has something around that model's 100kW of power, with a matching 3.9L/100km fuel economy rating.
