A hybrid 'pure F GT car' could end reliance on V8s.
Despite sales of the Lexus CT hybrid hatchback ending last year in the U.S., Lexus isn't planning to abandon its segment in favor of the new compact crossover, the UX. The CT remains on sale in some countries, and Lexus's European boss is adamant the brand has to keep offering cars in that segment.
Both hybrid and conventional UXs go on sale in the fall in the U.S., but pricing hasn't been announced yet.
Lexus releases the first official photo of the production UX compact crossover.
The teaser image doesn't show much, yet.
