LEDs are used for the low beams, the high beams, the DRLs and the turn signals. With a color temperature of 6,000K, the LED light is very similar to daylight, making it easier on the eyes when driving at night. Additional strengths include excellent light distribution, long service life and extremely low energy consumption."

LED headlamps supplied by Osram were one of the energy-efficient features of the Volkswagen L1 concept car, a diesel-electric hybrid vehicle constructed from aluminum and carbon fibre weighing just 380 kg and capable of 189 mpg miles per gallon – see Volkswagen’s one-litre car shines with Osram LED systems.
