Richard Balshaw, Lexus Director, said: "Cleangreencars' independent data confirm that Lexus is delivering real-world results in bringing down emissions while maintaining the levels of luxury and refinement that are central to the brand.

The world's first full hybrid premium compact car, the Lexus CT 200h, has helped Lexus to achieve a fall in manufacturer CO2 emissions, according to the latest cleangreencars industry survey.

Lexus has seen average emissions fall to 130.62g/km, a 22.63% drop from 2010's figures, making Lexus the "cleanest" premium brand for vehicle carbon emissions and putting it in the top 10 of all volume car makers.

The improvement is a result of the Lexus CT 200h's technologies including the latest generation Lexus Hybrid Drive, producing 94g/km CO2, the lowest figure for any car in its class. As a result, the CT 200h benefits from zero annual road tax and low company car benefit in kind rates a zero first year Write Down Allowance for business fleet operators.

Richard Balshaw, Lexus Director, said: "Cleangreencars' independent data confirm that Lexus is delivering real-world results in bringing down emissions while maintaining the levels of luxury and refinement that are central to the brand.

"The advances we have made with CT 200h will be sustained by the introduction of more new full hybrid models, starting with the all-new GS next year, further reducing our emissions average."
