LEXUS HYBRID DRIVE POWERTRAIN
With many rival manufacturers yet to produce a first generation hybrid, Lexus already has over a decade of experience in full hybrid powertrains. Marking the introduction of Lexus' second generation hybrid technology to premium compact segment customers for the first time, the new Lexus CT 200h reinforces the company's clear leadership in the development of full hybrid drive systems.
The new Lexus CT 200h is a full hybrid capable of operating in petrol and electric modes alone, as well as a combination of both. Its Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain delivers the performance benefits of a parallel hybrid combined with the energy-saving benefits of a series hybrid.
The CT 200h's Lexus Hybrid Drive features a unique energy management system which equips the new full hybrid with remarkably quiet operation, impressive, seamless acceleration and the performance customers expect from a premium compact segment vehicle.
Conversely, it delivers remarkable fuel efficiency and, offering significant cost of ownership benefits in many European countries, not only classleading CO2 emissions, but also generates significantly less NOX and particulate emissions than an equivalent diesel engined vehicle.
Further enhancing the Lexus Hybrid Drive system's outstanding environmental credentials, the Lexus CT 200h design incorporates numerous additional energy saving and environmentally-conscientious measures. These include an energy-saving air-conditioning system incorporating an electric compressor, a humidity sensor with automatic air inlet mode control and pro-active seat heaters; the comprehensive use of power saving LED lighting; a lightweight, energy-efficient audio system amplifier and bamboo charcoal speakers; and the extensive use of bio-sourced materials.
