From here:


The newly developed high-rigidity body, along with enhanced suspension and a package with a low center of gravity, ensures superior handling and cruising stability as well as a comfortable ride. Also, carefully positioned, low-hip-point seats and other features augment driving pleasure.

The 1.8-liter Atkinson cycle combustion engine4 is combined with an electric motor to create a hybrid system optimized for the CT200h.

The CT200h offers the standard driving mode that balances power with fuel efficiency as well as different driving modes that modify control of the hybrid system, vehicle stability control and electric power steering, thus transforming both the driving style and the cabin mood.
  • Sport Mode offers direct response and quick acceleration, while Eco Mode combines emphasized fuel efficiency with comfortable driving
  • Gauge illumination turns red in Sport Mode and blue in Eco Mode; tachometer as well as Hybrid System Indicator light up in Eco Mode
  • Vehicle also equipped with EV (electric vehicle) mode for quiet operation that uses motor only
A refined exterior design based on the Lexus L-finesse5 design philosophy evokes the dynamic driving performance of the vehicle.
  • Wheels with wide-tread, low-profile tires create striking, road-hugging impression
  • Forward-positioned quarter pillars express cabin's forward motion and compactness, while long roof extending to rear of vehicle contributes to aerodynamic performance and rear-seat comfort
  • Lexus' unique "arrowhead" profile6 expresses depth and air-flow, while lowered grille emphasizes resoluteness

The sophisticated cockpit is designed to lessen the need for physical movement and enhance the drivers' line of vision, and features two distinct zones: an information-filled Display Zone and a function-control Operation Zone. The Operation Zone controls, including shift knob and Remote Touch, are within easy reach of the driver to enhance operability and create a sporty driving space.

I hope its not like the IS250 where you sit in side and makes you feel claustrophobic.

I have a feeling the interior will be quite similar to the IS250..... if that makes you claustrophobic, then it probably would as well. The cars will share a lot of components - especially interior pieces to save on cost.

I'm confused with your comments, guys. I am 6' 190 lbs and have no idea what you mean about claustrophobia in the ISX50...

Ya, never felt claustrophobic in the IS250 but I am 5'10 and medium build.

Looking at interior pictures the console is very centered to the driver, maybe thats what was meant?

The center console is the only thing I am iffy about. Looks like it was just slapped together by a different set of people than the rest of the interior.
