Valeo full-LED headlamps on two concept cars

PARIS: Valeo is fitting full-LED headlights the ZB10 Renault and SEAT IBE concept cars exclusively presented at the Paris Motor Show.

With their low energy consumption, equivalent to 85% of traditional headlamps, LEDs are are seen as ideal for electric vehicles because they increase their range, and they reduce fuel consumption by around 0.2 litres per 100 km for internal combustion engine vehicles.

In addition to low consumption, Valeo said LEDs offer many other benefits, such as a long lifespan exceeding that of the vehicle, the compactness of the associated optical systems, and the freedom they offer designers in terms of customised vehicle styling.

The use of new-generation LEDs, coupled with a high-efficiency optical system, produces light that is close to natural daylight, thereby increasing safety, it said.
