2011 Lexus CT 200h Spy Shots

Before I even get started, I really, really hope that CT 200h isn’t the final name for this car. Even in this era of alphabet soup car names, CT 200h is decidedly forgettable and meaningless. Moving on….

The 2011 CT 200h is a compact, 4 door (some say 5 door) hatchback hybrid. Under the hood is Toyota’s 1.8 liter 4 cylinder engine, attached to the Hybrid Synergy Drive that Toyota is so famous for. Front wheel drive and a Continuously Variable Transmission round out the drivetrain.

As for electric-only power, 2011 CT 200h can travel up to a mile without using the engine, if you are careful with the loud pedal. Estimated fuel economy isn’t available yet, but it should be pretty solid given the small size of the vehicle.

For now, Toyota has no plans to sell the Lexus CT 200h in the United States.  I cannot fathom why – Toyota has a long track record of selling tons of hybrids here…. but such is life sometimes.  They could always change their minds.  Check out the spy shots after the jump.
