LEDs will shape the future of lighting technology. We are already accustomed to seeing them on screens and other devices.

In developing the first dynamic full LED high-performance headlamps for the new CLS-Class, Mercedes-Benz demonstrates that LEDs can enhance both visibility and safety on the road. The LED high-performance headlamps deliver a colour temperature of 5,500 K.

This means that they are closer to the temperature of daylight than their bi-xenon counterparts and are less of a strain on the eyes.

With an average service life of 10,000 hours, a light-emitting diode lasts around five times as long as a xenon lamp. Using LED headlamps also reduces the power consumption of the lighting system. In combination with Adaptive Highbeam Assist, the Mercedes-Benz LED high-performance headlamps deliver a new level of safety for night-time driving.
