Rear Combination Lamps
More than a combination of 5 functions
These days, LEDs are key: Not only are they taking the automotive industry by storm due to their energy-saving potential, they also offer a level of design versatility that is crucial to developing a vehicle’s typical appearance. For combination rear lamps especially, manufacturers are exploring the many options available when LEDs are combined with optical systems, creating attractive and distinctive vehicle designs.
A combination of comfort and function
LEDs are becoming more and more popular as light sources in the field of interior lighting, as in other sectors. Already a long-established fixture of the instrument panel, these lights can now also be used for interior lighting and reading lamps, thanks to steady gains in the power and versatility of white and colored LEDs – which also offer low power consumption compared to filament bulbs.
This opens up a whole range of decorative design possibilities for the cockpit in addition to the functional lighting aspect.
Diverse Safety Lighting
The product group of small lamps combines all products of the exterior vehicle lighting, except headlamps and rear combination lamps. So, HELLA offers a comprehensive portfolio of fog lamps, daytime running lights and front combination lamps.
