Because we often need to follow a vehicle and are therefore in a position to observe the quality of its rear lamps, it is obvious that the latter are an essential factor in the perception of the vehicle.

They also help identify the model and its brand. LEDs offer this design flexibility which enables each brand to create its signature look.

To do this, Valeo has developed a range of technical solutions, which designers can adapt, giving free rein to their creativity. Another advantage offered by LEDs is that their instant activation reduces by several hundred milliseconds their response time and therefore cuts the braking distance of vehicles following behind by several meters, which could be crucial in case of emergency braking. Lastly, the low electricity consumption of LEDs help reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
