It began as a rumor, but now confirmed by Toyota, the Lexus CT 200h will not becoming to the US market any time soon. A spokesman for Toyota was quoted as saying, “There are no plans, at present, to bring this vehicle to the U.S.”
The CT 200h will be the first and only full hybrid luxury compact on the market. My guess is because there really isn’t a market, at least in this economy. Who needs a status symbol in the drive way when you can have something much nicer for half as much?
Toyota can keep their Lexus CT 200h.
