Philips Automotive, a division of Royal Philips, has unveiled new street-legal applications for stop, tail and back-up lighting with its new line of Philips X-tremeVision LED Exterior Lighting.
According to the company, these new Philips X-tremeVision LED Exterior bulb replacements use high-powered LEDs to deliver five times more light output than standard 1156, 1157 and 921 incandescent bulbs, while using 13 times less energy. The extra light output provided by these new LEDs helps increase safety and speeds driver response during braking.
Designed as direct replacements for original equipment, they are heat resistant and offer a perfect fit in the vehicle’s existing bulb socket. With a life expectancy of up to 12 years, the new Philips LED lights will last substantially longer than traditional bulbs, the company says. The new LED lamps are available in Intense Red for 1156 and 1157 for stop, and tail light, as well as 6000K Xenon White for 921 White and 1156 White for back up light applications.
Philips new X-tremeVision LED Exterior line complements Philips' current line of interior LEDs, which are available in both 4000K Bright White and 6000K Xenon White configurations for overhead and glove box applications.
