The Digital Outer Mirrors offer an expanded view of the car's surrounding by augmenting the display area during turns or when backing up. Come next month, Lexus will officially launch the "Digital Side-View Monitors" for the all-new ES.

Mirrorless cars may also have an improved fuel economy due to the lower drag of the slim camera housing; wind noise and visibility will also be improved. Those cameras beam images inside the cabin.

Cameras are equipped to areas where side mirrors are usually located and capture views of the vehicle's sides and back, which are shown on monitors set in front of the driver's and front passenger's seats within the cabin.

The feed from the new side camera's will be displayed inside on two 5-inch displays that sit on the ES' a-pillars.
