The Lexus CT compact car could be life, in spite of the introduction of the similar UX-SUV later this year, the company Europe-has told the chief.
Widespread reports had suggested that Lexus is the introduction in the booming small-SUV market makes superfluous the ageing CT, but Pascal Ruch told Autocar: “the size of The segment of the CT is competing in, is still very significant.
“At the moment, I see the UX provide additional volume, not necessarily to replace the CT. We have just the CT, we have at least two years of sales to assessment. There is no hurry to make a decision.”
The CT is the oldest vehicle in the Lexus range, and accounts for 10,000 of its 75,000 annual turnover in Europe. However, Ruch highlighted to bring its role and new customers to Lexus.
He said: “Between 70% and 75% of the buyers new to Lexus, and this is a great opportunity for us, our qualities to the customers. Of course, I hope that the UX can lead to similar results, but you don’t have to at the expense of the CT.”
