Japanese Launch of Lexus CT 200h in May?

Lexus LF-Ch

Japanese newspaper Chunichi Shimbun is reporting that the new Lexus CT200h will be on sale in Japan starting in May, adding credibility to rumors of a LF-Ch production model debuting at the Geneva Auto Show in March.

The newspaper also claims the new hybrid hatchback will be powered by same hybrid engine as the third-gen Toyota Prius, where it produces a modest combined 134hp. Too bad Google’s translation falls apart when it comes to price, claiming the CT 200h will start at ¥ 300 million ($3.3 million USD).
