Lexus has been building luxury cars for over 30 years. Through most of that time, the Lexus ES has been the most popular model, even though it has undergone many changes since it first debuted. The name itself even means “Executive Sedan” or “Elegant Sedan” depending on who you talk to.
One of the more recent updates to the Lexus ES has been the addition of a hybrid powertrain. Starting in the sixth generation and continuing into the current seventh generation, the Lexus ES has offered a Hybrid version to appeal to a different crowd in the luxury category. The success of this move is evident simply by looking at Lexus dealerships all across America. ES and ES Hybrid models share spots next to each other on lots from coast to coast. For those unsure if the hybrid version of the ES is the right choice to make, the following table shows many of the most important features and specifications for the vehicle.
