In an ambitious move that signals the brand’s on-going commitment to electrification of its vehicles, Lexus Australia is offering the seventh-generation ES as an exclusively hybrid range in Luxury and Sports Luxury grades.

Now in its seventh generation, the latest ES builds on the car’s renowned comfort, refinement and luxury appointments with an exceptionally rigid new chassis that allows for a more dynamic exterior design and even better driving performance.

The ES 300h joins the new flagship models, LS sedan and LC coupe, in delivering eye-catching styling with greater emotional appeal.

Lexus Australia chief executive Scott Thompson said the performance and sophistication of the hybrid-powered ES creates an entirely new feeling of amazing that will attract new customers to the brand as well as traditional Lexus buyers.

“The all-new ES 300h showcases craftsmanship and innovation in every detail from its coupe-like body to its premium interior,” Mr Thompson said.

“We are also delighted to introduce a luxury mid-size sedan with a fourth-generation self-charging hybrid powertrain that delivers enhanced performance with minimal emissions,” he said.

Improved dynamics, performance and safety for the all-new ES begin with the advanced new platform that delivers rigidity close to the flagship LC and LS models.

The style, technology and craftsmanship for the all-new ES have been inspired by the Lexus LS flagship sedan. A refined sense of sportiness in the ES design comes from the longer, lower and wider silhouette, complemented by a larger footprint due to the longer wheelbase and wider tracks.

Alloy wheels are standard – 17-inch for Luxury while the 18-inch Sports Luxury wheels feature a hollow rim structure to help reduce tyre noise.

Attention to detail is demonstrated throughout the interior with elaborate design and masterful execution using hand-crafted surfaces and high-quality components.

Other ES Luxury equipment includes dual-zone air-conditioning, automatic rain-sensing wipers, a moonroof, electronic park brake, premium trim and a power-adjustable steering column.

Sports Luxury expands the air-conditioning to three zones with a humidity sensor. It is also equipped with a hands-free boot opener, semi-aniline leather-accented seats, heated steering wheel and adjustable, heated rear seats that recline.
