Default Spotted a Lexus test mule

I spotted a Lexus Test Mule this morning in NYC. The car has mfr plates, wider wheels, and missing body trim all in an es body.. I'm curious if it has the new ttv6 under the hood..

Looks like ES hybrid or possible hydrogen testing. Or maybe pure electric. I say this because a twin turbo V6 would likely have dual tailpipes.

Lexus/Toyota will never have a pure EV.

I think it's the new ES is being tested. The 7ES is right around the corner.

ES-F, anyone?

Obviously a sarcasm if it is not detected.
