    Lexus CT 200h is No More After 2017


    • Wait, they were still selling it?

    The CT 200h, the sole hybrid-only model in Lexus' lineup will be disappearing from the U.S. after 2017. The company told Car and Driver the hatchback will not be returning to the U.S. for 2018 model year. It will still be sold in other markets for the foreseeable future.

    The move isn't that surprising considering how the model hasn't changed significantly since its launch in 2011 and slow sales - 8,903 models sold in 2016. Not helping matters is the sister model, the Toyota Prius has been updated and beats the CT 200h in fuel economy - 52 mpg combined vs. 42 mpg combined.

    A subcompact crossover known as the UX is coming and a hybrid variant could act as the de-facto replacement for the CT.

    Yet why pay the premium for this when the exterior and interior really was nothing special over the prius model. Piss poor from day one.

    it was popular in these parts.  particularly at the used auto broker dealers that sell lots of 1-3 year old luxury lease returns.  lots of them available with crazy low miles for a good deal, in comparison to say, a toyota iM or prius

    My boss bought one that was traded on a Genesis.  Original owner had it murdered out, and the radio was on the fritz.  I think it's fixed now, and since he peeled some of the plasti-dip off, it's now only an attempted murder.

    ... I thought it was dead already..

    It never felt like a Lexus level car. 

    It was like a toy for those wannabes who grew up with the F &F crowd...
