Lexus Starts Dropping Traditional Sideview Mirrors For Cameras

The new setup's shape is created to resist the accumulation of such elements, Lexus says, meaning you'll never have to get your sleeves or interior trim wet to wipe off rainwater.

The wing mirrors are replaced with small cameras mounted on the outside of the auto, with small screens displaying the feed from these cameras on the inside.

Some new features touted by automakers ventually turn out to be novelties that never make it into production, but one feature manufacturers have been putting on their concepts for decades that hasn't gone away is now making it into production on the recently redesigned 2019 Lexus ES. Lexus will start offering Digital Outer Mirrors, and the first vehicle to get it will be the new ES saloon.

There's also the enhanced view software, which displays the footage on the monitors inside the cabin in high quality even at night and inclement weather. Whenever the driver uses the car's indicators or engages reverse "the system automatically enhances the corresponding area".

- The camera will display the images on a monitor inside the cabin placed at the bottom of the A-pillar. Drivers can also change the images manually "to obtain complete peripheral awareness of the area around the vehicle".

Other benefits include a reduction of wind noise and better forward visibility due to the elimination of large side mirrors. If you are excited about ordering an ES with this mirror tech, Lexus says that it will only be available in Japan.
