The HS gets 187-hp and gets a combined 35-mpg.
In addition to the CT200h info, Lexus will also showcase its new lineup of IS models for Europe, including a new turbodiesel IS200d model.

Official release after the jump:
Lexus at Paris Motor Show 2010 • Market launch & specification reveal for Lexus CT 200h • Debut of revised Lexus IS range
Market launch of the new CT 200h On sale through Lexus retailers from October, the Paris Motor Show marks the official market launch of the new CT 200h, the first and only full-hybrid vehicle in the premium compact segment.
Lexus will release full specification information including CO2 emissions level, system output and performance data and indicative pricing.
Revised IS range Debuting at the show, the new IS model line-up features the most significant changes since its launch.
With the addition of the new 110 kW/150 DIN hp turbodiesel IS 200d, Lexus now offers a choice of three models (IS 200d, IS 220d, IS 250) – all with improved fuel economy and lower emissions, yet no detriment to performance.
The entire IS model range also features numerous exterior and interior styling revisions giving it a more distinctive look and character, hallmarking it as a uniquely elegant, muscular and dynamic sports sedan.
Heavily influenced by the design of the high performance Lexus IS F, a new, enhanced F Sport grade is available with both petrol and diesel versions. It builds on the existing F Sport design with an expanded range of exclusive, exterior and interior styling details.
Critically acclaimed LFA Already sold out, and entering production in December with a limited run of 500 units the LFA will also bring a touch of supercar glamour to the Lexus stand.
