New Lexus CT 200h on sale now

17 March 2011

New Lexus CT 200h hybrid cars

The Lexus CT 200h is the world’s first full hybrid to be launched in the heart of the premium compact segment. Its technical innovation, style, quality and driver appeal will bring a new and younger customer group to the Lexus brand.

The CT 200h was created with the European market in mind. Its size, packaging and low 94g/km CO2 emissions delivered by its hybrid power system meet many of the prime requirements of a discerning and environmentally aware customer base.

Grade structure, UK market and pricing
The Lexus CT 200h is available in three model grades: SE-I, SE-L and SE-L Premier. A new gateway model for the Lexus range, it is priced from £23,485 on-the-road.

Prices, insurance and VED
The table below sets out the launch on-the-road prices, insurance groups and Vehicle Excise Duty bands for the CT 200h.

MODEL OTR PRICE INSURANCE GROUP VED BAND
CT 200h SE-I £23,485 15E A
CT 200h SE-L £25,200 15E A
CT 200h SE-L Premier £30,635 17E A

Equipment highlights

A high equipment specification is an established quality of all Lexus models and the CT 200h sustains the company’s reputation for a generous tick-list of premium comfort, convenience and safety features.

Across the board, all version of the CT 200h are fitted with alloy wheels – 16 or 17-inch according to customer preference – dual-zone climate control, a USB port and Aux socket for connecting portable music players, Bluetooth for mobile phone connection and audio streaming, front fog lights, automatic wipers and dark-tinted rear privacy glass.

Cost of ownership
The CT 200h’s class-leading cost of ownership profile is underpinned by its low emissions performance, which qualifies it for a zero annual Vehicle Excise duty (road tax) charge, plus the bonus of exemption from the London congestion charge.

The benefits extend to company car drivers, who enjoy the lowest, 10 per cent rating for benefit-in-kind company car tax, and for fleet operators, who earn the advantage of a first-year 100 per cent write down allowance against corporation tax. Factor in the CT 200h’s impressive fuel economy (68.9mpg official combined cycle figure), and designed-in low service, maintenance and repair costs, and you have a package that offers a clear cost advantage over its segment rivals.

Service intervals are annually or at every 10,000 miles, which helps maximise component lifetime. The Lexus Hybrid Drive system is engineered for low maintenance requirements and the hybrid battery is designed to last the lifetime of the car.
