Lexus CT 200h Australian Launch in 2011

Lexus Australia has confirmed that the CT 200h sportback will become the fourth hybrid model in its lineup, starting in mid 2011. It will be the country’s only full hybrid hatchback, and join the LS 600h L, GS 450h, and RX 450h in Lexus Australia’s petrol-electric hybrid range.

Lexus Australia head Tony Cramb was quoted stating that the CT 200h’s arrival represents the notion that “the traditional definition of luxury vehicles is changing,” and notes that the “CT 200h will be Lexus’ most significant vehicle since the introduction of the IS Line, bringing with it a whole new range of customers to the brand.” Cramb further adds that the new model “reinforces Lexus’ commitment to hybrid vehicles and cements our real-world hybrid advantage in the luxury market.”

  1. Me hungry for real Lexus luxury cars/SUVs!

  2. @WorldofLuxury: lol, just wait for the next GS. that’ll be the one everyone will be talking about. not many people I know of really are about (or care for) the CT…

  3. In N America there is naturally more interest in larger luxury vehicles; it’ll be other export markets where this model will be more crucial…as the Lexus of hatchbacks.
