New LED Technology For Automotive Headlight Lamps

Monday, December 27th, 2010

You have probably heard about a number of applications for LED technology, the LED traffic light around the corner, the bright and prettier automotive LED tail lights, stop lights and even the latest LED  headlights lights now available on Prius and other Toyota models.led headlight

For automotive giants Toyota and others, a new movement is about to come.  They are all actively working on the next generation of LED applications, the LED automotive headlight lamps.

The evolution from halogen headlight bulbs to LED headlight assembling means brighter and whiter lighting output, as well as longer lasting bulbs, (4 times longer lasting) with less energy consumption overall.

The brighter lighting output will provide better visibility therefore improving overall road safety.

The whiter color means the color temperature of LED headlight lamps is about 5000 kelvin to 5500 kelvin which is closer to the color of the sun light vs the halogen filament headlight bulbs’ yellowish 3500 kelvin.

An LED greater lifespan makes the headlight last “almost forever” with almost zero maintenance cost v.s. the halogen headlight’s shorter 500 working hour life, then replacement.

Toyota has introduced the new Prius with optional LED headlight lamps with other models to follow including Lexus models such as the LS600h and possibly a new 2012 Camry, Camry redesign.

In the short future, more cars will adopt the LED technology for headlight lamps for its brighter, whiter appearance, econ-friendly make-up, and long lasting characteristics.

UPDATE AUGUST  2011:  2012 Camry, See The Real Car Here


This is a May 2011 image of a 2012 Toyota Camry that is the best we have at this point. Buyer acceptance of upcoming new Toyota cars and trucks will have a pivotal role in Toyota’s future as the number one car maker. A goal for a 2012 Camry redesign is to raise Camry’s image as a value alternative in the luxury car arena.

This car features an upscale exterior that expresses power and energy with Japanese overtones. With this image Toyota  shows a more substantial design, different  from it’s Lexus relatives, while animating headlights and adding horizontal design details that add a sense of width. The proposal of all exterior dimensions are no more than 20mm off the current Camry. Dimensions are approximately 4810MM *1825mm * 1470mm (L*W*H*)

From what we know, Engines  of 2012 Toyota Camry are expected to be the same as 7th generation Camry. The 3.5 V6 is mated  with a new six-speed automatic and produces 268 horsepower. The Camry will have  a standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine also mated  with a 6-speed transmission.

The car is scheduled to debute in the United States FAll 2011.
