Mirrorless Lexus ES Going On Sale In Japan This October

Lexus ES becomes the first production car to replace outside mirrors with a camera

It will be the first mass-produced auto in the world to adopt such mirrors, the Japanese automaker said. Lexus will start offering Digital Outer Mirrors, and the first vehicle to get it will be the new ES saloon.

Lexus says its new, seventh-generation ES is set to become available in October 2018 (in the Japanese market, at least) with what it describes as the "world's first" digital exterior mirrors.

The system automatically enhances the corresponding area―left, right or behind―when the turn signals are activated, or when the transmission is put into reverse.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tour of New Zealand confirmed
Kensington Palace shared that the Royals were invited to come and tour New Zealand and Australia by their respective governments. The couple's tour of the four countries will begin in Sydney on October 16, with Rotorua listed as the last stop.

Because the camera pods are smaller than conventional mirrors, Lexus claims they will allow greater outward visibility, as well as reduce wind noise. In addition to providing an expanded view and better visibility at night and in poor weather, these digital systems can help yield better fuel efficiency due to the more aerodynamic design of the camera setup.

The new camera-based rearview mirrors on the Japanese-market 2019 Lexus ES 300h. The cameras also are shaped so that they won't be obscured by rain or snow.

The feed from the new side camera's will be displayed inside on two 5-inch displays that sit on the ES' a-pillars.

. Digital Outer Mirrors is an extension of the full display mirror (FDM) digital rear view mirror that Lexus and Toyota already offer.
