Lexus rearview mirror cameras will debut in October

Of course, the Lexus isn't the only vehicle we've seen lately to use cameras to replace wing mirrors, but the new ES has beaten the Audi E-tron to market by quite a distance. Another advantage is that Digital Outer Mirrors are shaped to resist the accumulation of raindrops and snow.

It works by transmitting live video feed onto 5-inch display monitors that are placed near the A-pillars of the cabin. Lexus claims that they provide better views of the car's surrounding even at night and in inclement weather. Lexus has also "enhanced" the view for the driver when the indicators are activated to provide better rearward vision when reversing.

The Digital Side-View Monitors will go on sale in late October and will be made available for the Japanese market only.

The digital mirror system is created to automatically enhance the corresponding area that the driver is viewing be it left, right, or behind the vehicle when the turn signals are activated or when the auto is in reverse.

Little change in strength is expected before the center reaches the coast, with weakening expected after the center moves inland. Labor Day marked the end of the peak tourism season in the Outer Banks of North Carolina and other coastal getaways.

Lexus is dropping traditional side mirrors for sleek digital cameras in what it calls an industry-first move to improve safety, visibility and cabin solitude.

The sedan still has stalks sticking out of its sides, but their lower-profile design reduces aerodynamic drag for fuel efficiency and cuts down on wind noise.

We're surprised it's taken this long for manufacturers to catch on, but Lexus is finally offering digital wing mirrors as an option for the upcoming ES replacement model.
