Claimed to be the world’s first and only full hybrid in the premium compact segment, the CT200h is a based on the LF-Ch concept which was showcased at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show . A full hybrid is one that can boasts an electric motor that can power the car without the internal combustion engine running.

The 200h moniker is being said to represent the 2.0-litre engine, which coupled with an electric motor powers the car.

The CT 200h will be Lexus’s entry level hybrid pegged below established models such as the RX450h, GS 450h and LS600h .

Apart from the teaser shot of the car’s rear and its name Lexus hasn’t revealed much and we would have to wait till the official debut to get our hands on more details.
