Leaked 2011 Lexus CT 200h images
In addition, the 2011 Lexus CT 200h is powered by a new hybrid drivetrain that combines a 1.8-liter gasoline engine with a more powerful electric motor. This is supposed to emphasis the sportier side of the vehicle (including the selectable SPORT mode) while the driver will be able to select ECO, NORMAL or EV mode for a more economical driving experience. EV or electric vehicle mode will allow the driver to use electric power to propel the vehicle at a speed up to 28 mph and a distance up to 1.2 miles. As for the interior and technology, the Lexus will be equipped with the Remote Touch multi-function controller, eight-inch LCD and all the normal luxury features expected on a Lexus.
Bottom line—Car companies seem to be clicking to the idea that the style of a “green” vehicle is just as important to some generations as how much it impacts the environment. It also helps the adoption factor because people don’t feel like they are making a huge leap when the step up from their current vehicle.
