Valeo Full-LED Headlamps on Two Concept Cars

With their low energy consumption, equivalent to 85% of traditional headlamps, LEDs are perfect for electric vehicles because they increase their range, and they reduce fuel consumption by around 0.2 litres per 100 km for internal combustion engine vehicles.

In addition to low consumption, LEDs offer many other benefits, such as a long lifespan exceeding that of the vehicle, the compactness of the associated optical systems, and the freedom they offer designers in terms of customized vehicle styling, as illustrated by these two concept cars.

The use of new-generation LEDs, coupled with a high-efficiency optical system, produces light that is close to natural daylight, thereby increasing safety.

These new lighting systems are the fruit of a close partnership between Valeo and these automakers, and they demonstrate how the technology can be adapted to convey the sort of powerful, distinctive image sought by brand designers.
