Lexus has officially unveiled the CT 200h in Geneva.

Based on the LF-Ch concept, which debuted at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, the CT 200h was "designed and developed with the European market in mind." The five-door hatchback features Lexus' L-finesse design philosophy, LED daytime running lights, and a wraparound rear window. Inside, the car has an asymmetrical dashboard, metallic accents, and an eight-inch LCD screen.

Under the hood, power comes from a 1.8-liter four-cylinder VVT-i petrol engine and a magnet synchronous electric motor. While the company declined to release performance data, they stated the front-wheel drive CT 200h has four selectable drive modes: Eco, Normal, Sport, and EV. The latter turns the car into a full electric-vehicle at speeds up to 28 mph for up to 1.2 miles.

The CT 200h will enter production in late 2010, with global sales starting shortly thereafter.
