A compact hybrid Lexus hatchback, that's interesting, right? Well, sure it is, but according to Inside Line, Lexus doesn't think its CT 200h will be charming enough to close the deal with North American buyers. We all hastily clicked on the teaser shot featuring the car's taillamp and badging, and we'll take in the entirety of the CT 200h when the wraps come off at the Geneva Motor Show.

The pictures that come from that debut will be as close as many of us may ever come to the CT 200h. Too bad, as the car carries a second-generation Lexus adaptation of Toyota's vaunted hybrid drivetrain, and it opens up a new segment to the luxury automaker. If IL's sources are correct, we'll have to be satisfied with admiring this latest Lexus from afar.
