LED Technology

LED Technology

An LED (light-emitting diode) is a light-emitting semi-conductor which has a much longer service life and a lower power consumption than conventional bulbs.

The advantages of LED technology over conventional bulbs are their lower energy consumption, shorter response time, more compact design and a longer service life (lasts the entire life of the vehicle).

Volkswagen installs LEDs, for example, in the rear lights as well as in the turn signals in the exterior mirror housings. The high functional reliability and service life of LEDs increase safety thanks to the fact that rear lights and brake lights are less likely to fail.
