First teaser photo of Lexus CT 200h released

Usually, the process through which a concept model becomes a production car is very long. Lexus tries to prove the opposite, as only six months after the world debut of the Lexus LF-Ch concept that took place in September last year at the Frankfurt Motor Show, now the Japanese automaker has announced that the production version of the hybrid premium hatchback will be presented publicly during the 2010 Geneva Motor Show that is set to take place in just a couple of weeks.

Along with this announcement, Lexus also offered a teaser photo of the production version of the Lexus LF-Ch, which will be named Lexus CT 200h. Until now, there are very few details regarding the hybrid premium hatchback. Rumors claim that the Lexus CT 200h will use the same FWD hybrid drivetrain like the Lexus HS 250h available on the North American market. Other rumors say that the Lexus CT 200h will come with the second generation Lexus Hybrid Drive technology and that the premium hatchback will have the option to operate exclusively on electricity. Still, these are just rumors so take them with a grain of salt until we have official information.

The Lexus CT 200h is set to be the first full hybrid vehicle in the premium compact segment, as the Japanese automaker claims that the new model will offer ``new levels of refinement and attention to detail, without compromising style or driving pleasure``. The Lexus CT 200h will go against cars like the BMW 1-Series or the Audi A3.

Below you have a photo gallery in which you get to see the new teaser photo, the most recent set of spy photos as well as pictures from the world debut of the Lexus LF-Ch concept.
