Lexus expects the CT200h to be the class leader in terms of fuel economy and CO2 emissions.

The CT200h is powered by a 1.8-litre petrol engine and twin electric motors. Power is sent through a CVT transmission to the front wheels.

It also features four selectable drive modes: normal, eco, sport and EV. These alter the car’s performance and steering response.
