Taking a Spin at the 2010 New York Auto Show

2011 CT 200h Lexus

The 2011 Lexus CT 200h will be the first dedicated hybrid vehicle in the premium compact segment. The CT 200h comes with four drive modes: EV allows for ultra-quiet running on electric motor power alone; normal mode has an near-linear throttle response; eco mode reduces throttle response relative to the pedal angle and adjusts air conditioning settings to emphasize fuel economy. The sport mode provides a more responsive throttle and modifies the electronic power steering settings to give a faster response to driver inputs. (Image source: Lexus)
