Now more than seven years old, the Lexus CT has long since started showing its age.

It’s been withdrawn from the US market, its place at the entry level of the company’s lineup effectively taken by the new UX crossover. But Lexus is reportedly preparing a replacement.

Auto Express reports that the next-generation CT will be offered both as a hybrid (like the current model) and as a pure EV. That’d put it in direct contention with the Tesla Model 3. And it would help distinguish it from other luxury hatchbacks like the Mercedes A-Class and Audi A3.

“The CT has a high conquest ratio of 70 to 75 per cent,” Lexus’ European chief Pascal Ruch told the magizine. “It’s useful at bringing new people to the brand. People buy the CT for efficiency; with the UX, we’re looking for a different customer.”
