In electric-only mode, the 530e can travel for around 28 miles, so if your daily commute is half that (or if you have charging facilities at the office) you won’t need to use a drop of petrol all week long. Beyond that point the 182bhp, 2.0-litre petrol engine cuts in, delivering a combined 248bhp and 420Nm of torque. 0-62mph takes just 6.2 seconds and top speed is 146mph (87mph is possible on electric power alone). Auto eDrive mode seamlessly switches between electric and petrol power, while Max eDrive prioritises battery propulsion. Official fuel consumption figures are based on a set route of about 7 miles, therefore the 141.2 combined mpg figure needs to be treated with caution. If you only ever travel short distances in EV mode you’ll beat that, if you drive longer distances regularly then the diesel 530d could deliver better fuel economy.

The ES is described by Lexus as a self-charging hybrid, which means it doesn’t have plug-in capability but that it offers a combination of petrol engine and electric motor to deliver smooth performance with excellent economy. Parent company Toyota’s expertise with hybrids is unparalleled and in the case of the ES the result is a very frugal and refined powertrain. An all-new 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine powers the front wheels, aided by a new hybrid transaxle transmission (including 118bhp electric drive motor and a smaller motor/generator) and driving an ‘e-CVT’ gearbox. The result is a combined power output of 215bhp, with an official 106 g/km CO2 and just over 60mpg. The bodyshell of the ES is both light and strong, and all models from F SPORT upwards have adaptive variable suspension for a supple ride and responsive handling.
