Lexus Breaks into Premium Compact Segment with Hybrid Concept
Currently, few little is known about the concept, other than the fact the Lexus is planning on using the "h" designation at the end of the name. Since the first Lexus series hybrid to be introduces, this designates a reduction is size of the petroleum engine and the addition of a small electric motor.
The internal combustion engine they plan on using has not been announced, nor has the name but never stops speculation. Lexus did mention a few potential badges they plan on using, which included the CT200h, CT300h, and CT400h.
No official plans have been made for production or a prototype for that matter. However, Lexus has said already they plan on taking hybrid system seriously and this could be the start.
