2013 Lexus ES Hybrid Spy Photos

Leftlane News has released spy photos of a camouflaged 2013 Lexus ES:

With the black vinyl and styrofoam inserts, there’s not much to look at, but the spindle grille is visible through the white mesh:

To get some perspective, I compared it to a current-generation ES with some guidelines built around the front wheel:

While the camouflaged ES has a longer front-end, many of the other points line up perfectly — in fact, the overall shape looks largely the same.

There’s even a shot of the interior, covered up as it is:

But saving the biggest news for last, zoom up on the instrument panel and the Lexus hybrid power gauge is clearly visible:

Obviously, the smart money was on a next-generation ES hybrid, and this all but confirms it — my bet would be on the ES sharing the new Camry Hybrid powertrain, meaning a 4-cylinder 2.5L engine with a electric motor delivering a combined 200 hp and 41mpg.
