2013 Lexus ES 300h

Lexus ES was first time introduced all the way back in 1989 and for 2013 we are getting a sixth generation and some nice improvements. What is most interesting to us is the 2013 Lexus ES 300h hybrid that will bring lower fuel consumption and CO2 emission.

The new ES 300h will be offered with the Lexus Hybrid Drive that combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder Atkinson cycle engine with an electric motor for a total of 200 HP and an impressive fuel economy of 39 mpg combined. The car can hit a top speed of 112 mph and will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 8.1 seconds and the quarter mile in 16.8 seconds.

Since its introduction in 1989, the ES has been the benchmark luxury sedan for quality, reliability, ride comfort and value, said Mark Templin, Lexus group vice president and general manager. The new ES 350 and the first ever ES hybrid raise the bar once again. /p

Updated 07/16/2012: Lexus has announced today that the 2013 ES 300h will arrive at dealerships next month. The model will be priced at $38,850, representing a difference of $2,750 over the ES 350 priced at $36,100.

The sixth generation Lexus ES has been refreshed from front to rear and has also grow in sizes: wheelbase has been increased by 1.8 inches and the length by 1 inch so that now the car offers better interior room. In the same time the car’s ride has been lowered so that it now offers a more aggressive and sporty look.

The car is defined by Lexus’ latest L design motif starting with the LED daytime running lights, the fog lights integrated into the sculpted lower front bumper fascia and down to the exclusive rear design with hidden exhaust and an integrated rear spoiler. The hybrid version will also be distinguished by unique blue badges and exclusive 17-inch alloy wheels.

Thanks to the car’s bigger exterior dimensions, the interior is also offering better room: rear headroom is increased by 0.8 inches, knee room is increased by 2.8 inches and legroom is lengthened by 4.1 inches. Lexus is also offering new cabin materials and the latest technologies from the market.

The sixth generation Lexus ES will be offered with enhanced NuLuxe seating surfaces, genuine or semi-aniline leather depending on the customer’s wishes. It can be ordered in Piano Black, Espresso Bird’s-eye Maple, plus Bamboo for the ES 300h.

All models will be offered with standard Lexus Premium Sound System featuring eight-speakers with Automatic Sound Levelizer (ASL), in-dash CD player, USB/iPod connectivity, and an integrated SiriusXM Satellite Radio receiver with a 90-day trial subscription.

Lexus is also offering an optional HDD Navigation System that includes voice command, an integrated backup camera, an eight-inch screen, and the next generation Lexus Enform system with App Suite.

The 2013 Lexus ES 300h is powered by the Lexus Hybrid Drive system that combines a 156 HP 2.5-liter four-cylinder Atkinson cycle engine with an electric motor for a total of 200 HP and an impressive 40 mpg city, 39 mpg highway and 39 mpg combined. The engine is mated to a six-speed sequential-shift automatic Electronically Controlled Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i).


The ES 300h will be offered with a Drive Mode selector. There are three driving modes to choose from: Normal for every day use, Sport mode that offers details on the IP changes from the hybrid power monitor to a tachometer and EV mode which allows short distance drives, at reduced speed, using only the power from the hybrid battery pack.

The car can hit a top speed of 112 mph and will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 8.1 seconds and the quarter mile in 16.8 seconds.
