Lexus is bringing their digital side-view monitor technology to Europe as an option for the ES 300h sedan. The system replaces the standard side mirrors with high-resolution cameras linked to in-car monitors.
The tech was introduced first in Japan two years ago, and it was a world-first for digital mirrors in a high-volume production car. It provides an enhanced view compared to traditional mirrors, reducing and eliminating the driver’s blind spots.
The Digital Side-View Monitor option will be available in the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain and Poland starting in March, and the rest of Europe by the end of 2020.
