Lexus ES 2018: Specs, Prices, Features, Photos

  • The 2019 Lexus ES Gets Cameras Instead of Sideview Mirrors, but Only in Japan

Here in the US, the technology has yet to be made legal, though vehicles are already being sold with video screens that replace the center rearview mirror. It will be the first mass-produced vehicle to get cameras and screens as wing mirrors - Volkswagen only made 250 units of the XL1 fuel economy special, and the Audi e-tron isn't out yet. The camera system monitors also allow a clearer view of the surrounding area around the vehicle than a normal mirror allows. Another advantage is that Digital Outer Mirrors are shaped to resist the accumulation of raindrops and snow.

The technology is called Digital Outer Mirrors, and even though the camera housings replicate the design of traditional mirrors, there's more to this solution than meets the eye.

Then there are the displays: A pair of 5-inch monitors are attached to the front pillars.

Xi says China to implement eight major initiatives with African countries
China defends continued lending to Africa on the grounds that the continent still needs debt-funded infrastructure development. President Paul Kagame of Rwanda also came out in support of Chinese investment, saying "Africa is not a zero-sum game".

The Digital Outer Mirrors offer an expanded view of the car's surrounding by augmenting the display area during turns or when backing up.

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. Come next month, Lexus will officially launch the "Digital Side-View Monitors" for the all-new ES. Brightness will also be automatically adjusted to increase visibility at night and in bad weather, improving security. And as the cameras cause less drag than mirrors, there's less annoying wind noise too.
