So I see they are telling everyone this will be a 1.8L hybrid. Any talks of them maybe makea little larger of a engine?

I think the 1.8 will be great, But this car is really sporty looking, a little more pep would be nice.

Here in the Netherlands Lexus stated it will have a CO2 output of 99 mg/km. For us thats important for tax reasons (14% instead of 25%). That means the petrol engine almost certainly will be the same as the Prius one (100 hp). But they also state it will have 2 litre performance (about 150 hp). The only possibility I see is a larger electric motor than the 80 hp one in the Prius.

It's a definite possibility, given that Lexus has registered the CT 300h and CT 400h model names...

You can readily improve on the existing 2ZE engine by installing less air restrictive sythentic fabric oil impregnated air element by K/N. Go to priusNation, they have done that with great success.

With sportier hybrids from BMW, Mercedes, and others, looking to be introduced within the next year or so, I seems a strong possibility that Lexus will come up with equally competitive models.
