As we stated in <A HREF="http://www.ct200hforum.com/forum/lexus-ct200h-news-reviews/117374-lexus-ct-200h-world-preview-tour-launches-canada.html">an earlier CT200hForum.com Front Page story</A>, two pre-production prototypes of the Lexus CT 200h kicked off a World Preview Tour in Toronto, Canada on the last weekend in August 2010. True to Lexus' word, the <A HREF="http://lexusenthusiast.com/2010/08/28/red-lexus-ct-200h-in-toronto/">Matador Red Mica and Obsidian</A> cars will now be traveling in a long, protracted south and west itinerary through the United States.

We should remind you that the U.S. tour will be a bit different in nature from Canada's. The U.S. portion of the tour will not feature the live musical entertainment component of Canada's but will feature something even more compelling to the heart of the true car enthusiast: an opportunity to actually drive the CT 200h. In Lexus' own words, you can be among the first in the world to experience the new CT 200h prototype at a location near you. This is a true insider experience: you’ll be able to see the vehicle, drive it and, most importantly, share your opinion on the still-in-development prototype with our engineers and designers. Attend an event to explore the CT 200h in a sophisticated virtual setting, learn about the Lexus brand, test drive the prototype vehicle and more. Become part of the inside story of this brand-new Lexus!

This tour has the makings of being similar to previous Scion launches where the car is driven around the block in the vicinity of a hip, youthful and vibrant area of the city with an event employee riding shotgun. You must be 18 or over with a valid Driver’s License to drive. It appears that no advance registration is necessary. You merely show up and register for your preview drive.

After <A HREF="http://www.ct200hforum.com/forum/lexus-ct200h-news-reviews/117375-lexus-ct-200h-world-preview-tour-united-states.html">at least one false start</A>, we now have full time, date and location information, but keep an eye on this story in case further information or updates become available.
