The Lexus electrified vision continues with the introduction of the new ES 300h Luxury variant

The Lexus ES lineup is expanding with the introduction of the hybrid electric ES 300h Luxury variant, offering customers more options for a decadent trim level when choosing a Lexus ES. The Lexus ES is now available in 3 variants: the ES300h Executive, the new ES300h Luxury, and the ES350 Premier.

The Lexus ES hybrid electric variants were designed for those who appreciate higher levels of comfort and convenience–plus the sustainable nature of Lexus’ hybrid drive technology. It features an elevated level of sophistication to surpass the expectations of an uncompromising luxury car buyer.

Buyers will find that the current ES models are more spacious, quieter, and safer than ever before. In contrast, a new generation of customers will find a saloon with sharp performance, class-leading safety technology, and a level of craftsmanship rarely found in this market segment.

The ES continues the Lexus Driving Signature philosophy (vehicles that are more balanced, refined in control, and confident thanks to linear steering, brake response, and optimized handling with exceptional ride quality) with these ES performance features, including its rear suspension member brace to further enhance torsional rigidity, handling stability, and ride comfort.

The ES brake system has the regenerative and hydraulic brake control characteristics of the Electronically Controlled Brake System (ECB) on ES hybrid models, enhancing the pedal feel when the brake pedal is released.

The new ES improves on the quality and elegance that has been well received by ES customers. The exterior has evolved into a more modern look by way of the updated designed front grille and headlamps, while the interior has adopted interior colors similar to the Premier variant.

The ES 300h Luxury variant is priced at P4,218,000 and has specifications that are very similar to the top-of-the-line ES 350 Premier variant. These include a 235/45R18 wheel-and-tire combination; rain-sensing wipers; smooth leather seats; driver 10-way power adjustable seats with memory; front passenger seat with 8-way power adjustment; kick sensor for the automatic trunk; and a 12.3-inch Electro Multi-Vision Touch Display.

The Lexus ES 300h Luxury also comes equipped with Lexus Safety Sense (LSS). This is a suite of advanced safety features that include the Pre-Collision System (PCS); Adaptive High Beam System (AHS); Automatic High Beam System (AHB); Lane Tracing Assist (LTA); Lane Departure Alert (LDA); and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC). The latest development of LSS introduces upgrades in performance and functionality. These systems have also been tuned to operate in a way that feels more natural to the driver, and thus more reassuring, adding to the sense of driving confidence inspired by the ES 300h’s platform and powertrains. With this evolution, Lexus Safety System moves to the next level as a personal driving partner.

The 2.5-liter inline-4 engine of the ES 300h Luxury is equipped with laser-clad intake valve seats, which permit increased airflow into the cylinder and an intake port shape that increases the tumble-flow turbulence of incoming air and fuel for high-speed combustion. The engine also achieves world-leading thermal efficiency, combining robust power delivery with excellent response to deliver superb fuel efficiency. Power and torque are rated at 178hp and 221Nm, respectively.

The ES hybrid system achieves excellent fuel efficiency and powerful acceleration due to its hybrid transaxle with improved efficient internal power flow and a higher-efficiency power control unit. Its compact hybrid battery is located beneath the rear seats, contributing to ideal weight balance and low center of gravity, while enlarging cargo space. Total system output of the gasoline engine and electric motor is 218hp.

Moreover, with the new 4th generation hybrid battery, the NEW ES hybrid electric variants now come with an 8-year HEV battery warranty. It also comes with the standard drive train warranty of 3 years or 100,000 kms. (whichever comes first)

The Lexus ES 300h Luxury delivers on the promise of unmatched craftsmanship, refinement, and an exhilarating driving experience.

Other Lexus ES models are available ES350 Premier at P4,828,000 and the ES300h Executive at P3,838,000.
