Mercedes-Benz has announced that the second generation Multibeam LED headlamps will be first introduced on MY2016 models, suggests today’s report on Mercedes-Benz Passion. The company announced in November last year that it will introduce this technology in the future.
The new generation Multibeam LED headlamps consist of 84 LEDs each whereas the current generation Multibeam LED headlamps introduced on the 2015 Mercedes CLS Class has 24 LEDs each. The 84 individually controllable LEDs assure that the driver gets the best visibility with high beam on the road without glaring the drivers of oncoming vehicles. Now the high beam and low beam operation can be implemented digitally and without any mechanical components for the first time. In the future, 1,024 individually controllable pixels per LED chip will improve night vision even further.
The company is testing an S-Class Coupe with ‘HighRange HighBeam LED’ headlamps, as per the report. The latest generation LED lighting technology will be offered on the next generation E-Class (codename: W213) that is set for a world debut at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show next January.
