LED Lighting Technology

The closest re-creation of daylight yet.

Imagine you're driving late at night down a twisty road. Something emerges from the inky shadows into the lane ahead. Your eyes strain to make out the object in utter darkness. That's where Audi LED headlight technology comes in. The light shining on the road ahead approximates the color temperature of daylight. Your eyes perceive more contrast. They relax. And with a nicely illuminated road, so can you.

LEDs are in our DNA.

Audi revolutionized vehicle lighting with the first full-LED headlamps appearing on the Audi R8 in 2008. Today, the use of LED technology helps create a look that's iconic and unmistakably Audi?even in the dark of night. But it's not simply about style. LED technology offers many other advantages: virtually daylight-white brightness, faster reaction time than traditional bulbs, low energy consumption and a long operating life.
Designed to beat trouble to the punch.

LED taillight technology goes on fast and bright, reacting ten times faster than conventional bulbs. That means if a trailing driver can notice the brake lights of the leading car sooner, that driver's reaction time can be quickened, potentially resulting in a shorter stopping distance.  Another fast-acting feature, the available high-beam assistant, can decide for itself when it's sensible to use the high-beam headlights. It automatically detects the headlights of oncoming traffic and the rear lights of other road users and varies the range and width of the headlights between dipped and full beam according to the road situation. Trouble really doesn't stand a chance.

The future is bright.

During their first year of operation, cars equipped with LED daytime running light technology sold by Audi saved around 25,000 tons of CO2. That's not just a load of hot air. Since LEDs are four times as efficient as halogen bulbs, they require the vehicle's alternator to replenish less energy, which in turn saves fuel and curtails carbon emissions. In addition, LED headlight technology is zero maintenance and designed for the life of the vehicle.
