Full LED headlight technology produces light at 5226 Celsius, that's roughly the same as daylight. This could help your eyes perceive more contrast. They experience less strain. And those dark stretches of road become a little less daunting.
This means that the light shining on the road ahead approximates the colour temperature of daylight. Important when one considers that the increased contrast perceived by the human eye allows it to relax, bringing more comfort to the driver.
Whatever the daytime light conditions, the use of LED daytime running lights ensures that a vehicle is seen quickly by other road users.
In fog, wind and all weather conditions, experts recommend switching on the dipped-beam headlights during the day or the use of any additional daytime running lights as a reliable solution to this problem.
If desired, automatic activation or deactivation is available so that when the light and rain sensor of a modern luxury vehicle activates the dipped-beam headlights, the daytime running lights are switched off.
As an added benefit to being seen quickly by other road users regardless of daytime light conditions, these special daytime running lights consume less energy than normal dipped-beam headlights. This also reduces fuel consumption while extending the dipped headlights’ working life.
LEDs are four times as efficient as halogen bulbs requiring less energy from the vehicle’s alternator to replenish. Not only does this save fuel, but significantly cuts down on carbon emissions. What’s more is that LED headlight technology requires zero maintenance and designed for the life of the vehicle.
This incorporation of daytime running lights with LED light sources has now become standard for many luxury car models including sedans, coupes and sportback vehicles. The increased safety and efficiency which are the hallmarks of a luxury vehicle, have benefited greatly from LED lighting technology.
Turning night into day, one LED design at a time.
Incredibly small in size, LEDs have opened up an array of styling opportunities for Audi designers, giving each vehicle a distinct, yet unmistakably Audi look.
