Lexus has revealed luxury specifications and competitive pricing and cost-of-ownership for the Lexus CT 200h, the model which will introduce full hybrid power to the UK's small luxury car market.
In the UK the Lexus CT 200h is available in three equipment grades, SE-I, SE-L and SE-L Premier. Across the board equipment specifications reflect Lexus's focus on peerless quality and refinement, plus segment-leading safety provisions.
On-the-road pricing starts at £23,485 for the SE-I model, inclusive of VAT at 20 per cent. This takes into account the fact that, although orders may be placed now, the sales tax rate must be applied at the time of delivery - the first cars will reach customers early in 2011. The competitive pricing aside, ownership costs are kept low thanks to the high fuel efficiency and ultra-low emissions performance of the Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain: producing 94g/km of carbon dioxide, the Lexus CT 200h earns a Band
A rating for Vehicle Excise Duty - hence a zero annual road tax bill and a 10 per cent Benefit-in-Kind charge for company car tax payers.

Lexus CT 200h Equipment Specifications
High equipment specifications are an established feature of all Lexus models and the new CT 200h sustains this reputation across all three model grades - SE-I, SE-L and SE-L Premier.
Of particular note are the first-in-segment LED headlights fitted as standard to the SE-L Premier and the availability of Lexus's advanced radar-controlled Pre-Crash Safety (PCS) system and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). The Lexus CT 200h also adopts Lexus's Remote Touch multi-function control, for simple and intuitive operation of ventilation, navigation, phone and vehicle set-up systems.
For all Lexus CT 200h grades, customers can choose between the 16in alloy wheels, optimised for a refined and comfortable driving experience, and the 17in alloy wheels, for more agility and dynamic appeal.Published 29 October 2010
