Mercedes-Benz developing new LED headlights

Mercedes-Benz developing new LED headlights

In this fiercely competitive automotive world a carmaker needs to match its competition, spec to spec and feature to feature. While BMW was the first to launch laser headlights with Audi following suit, Mercedes was left trailing. The company is now developing a next-generation of LED headlights.  

Mercedes will soon start production of headlamps which will feature 84 LEDs. The company claims the addition of these extra LEDs will provide better illumination. 

Mercedes also intends to incorporate High Range LED high beams into their LED headlamps in the "near future." As the company explains, "This additional high beam employs state-of-the-art high-performance LEDs to provide high beam ranges of over 600 meters (1968 feet) in driving situations without any oncoming traffic or vehicles ahead." 

It may not sound very exciting with Mercedes offering additional LEDs in the headlamp cluster, this technology has its advantage over Xenon and HIDs, but should Mercedes have gone the laser way? Well, they can’t offer it in every car, so this seems to be a good move as they might make enough of LED headlamps with better illumination than offer laser for a particular model and make headlines.
