Lexus sketches future compact for the Frankfurt motor show

Mon, 17 Aug 2009

Lexus is jumping into the compact fray and has released a sketch of a concept that will be revealed at the Frankfurt motor show on Sept. 15.

Lexus says the premium small car will make a design and technology statement, though further details are not available.

It appears likely that the concept would get a hybrid powertrain. Lexus has patented the names CT 200h, CT 300h and CT 400h in North America; the company has reserved the “h” for hybrid models.
