LED rear lights

Pure brilliance: the LED rear lights are innovative brake lights and tail lights featuring long-lasting LED light sources. They indicate to other road users when the vehicle is braking, reversing or signalling to turn, and they are highly visible in fog thanks to their light intensity.

Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have a whole series of technical advantages over conventional bulbs. The most important of these are their quick reaction times and long service life. Seeing the brake lights of the car ahead sooner can reduce a driver’s stopping distance, by around 5.5 metres for instance when braking from a speed of 100 km/h (all other conditions being the same). The light-emitting diodes last an entire vehicle life, consume up to 50 percent less energy and take up less space.
