Milestone: Lexus Has Built 1.5 Million ES Models Since 1989

Lexus ES 1.5m Milestone

Lexus has recently reached a significant manufacturing milestone — according to Just Auto, 1.5 million ES models have been built since the model’s debut in 1989.

Six generations of the ES have been built over the past 24 years, and it has been the best selling Lexus car over that period.

(Also of note for the ES: the model is once again being built as a right-hand drive vehicle, and will return to Australia for the first time since 2006.)

    OK, CT facelift looks all right, but what’s the red car under the blue cover in the last picture?! I’m pretty sure it’s the RC.

    It’s already in right hand drive prior to the release of the Lexus ES in Malaysia on last Monday. Malaysia’s the first country to receive it in my belief. Brunei will get it on this upcoming Friday, 18th October 2013.
