The Lexus CT 200h offers customer’s exceptional savings thanks to the low emissions performance and high fuel efficiency of the Lexus CT 200h’s Hybrid Drive System. Lower company car benefit-in-kind rates and zero annual road tax charges are two of the benefits of ownership. The Lexus CT 200h is also the only premium model with automatic transmission to be exempt from the London congestion charge.
Customers can save more money through the car’s design for low service, maintenance and repair (SMR) costs and predicted residual values that match the current class leaders. The Lexus CT 200h’s Lexus Hybrid Drive has low maintenance requirements designed-in. There is no starter motor or alternator, the continuously variable transmission (CVT) means there is no conventional clutch and there is no concerns about diesel particulate filter performance. Furthermore, the regenerative braking system helps extend the life of the brake pads to an average 70,000 miles. The hybrid components are covered by a five-year/60,000-mile warranty.
Lexus’s new full hybrid luxury compact model is priced at £23,485 on the road. There are three equipment grades available the SE-I, SE-L and SE-L Premier. Order books are now open with first customer deliveries in early 2011.
