True, although don't forget older higher mileage petrol engined vehicles (which there are alot of in the US) are responsible for a huge amount of nitrogen oxides too. Did you read the BBC experiment? An old Golf petrol V's a fairly old VW engined Skoda diesel, the Golf's nitrogen oxide emissions were 300% higher than the diesel.
Welcome. The Lexus CT200h is the Prius that Lexus built.
More accurately, I think the CT200h is based on the Corolla hybrid.

Gas is too cheap to make selling hybrids easy. Prius sales have been dropping year over year for the past several years. I saw a 2018 Fusion hybrid listed for $9000 below MSRP. Like the Prius v, Toyota simply wasn't selling enough CT200h to keep offering them.
The new Corolla is going to be unveiled soon, and it is getting the most advance hybrid system from Toyota. Don't know if it is coming to the US yet.
