BMW will be the first carmaker worldwide to offer a production vehicle that has laser headlights. Available as an optional extra on the i8 plug-in hybrid sports car, the laser headlamps will offer a high beam range of up to 600 meters.
The automaker says that the laser headlights are 30 percent more energy efficient than high power saving LED lights. Incoming vehicles won’t be blinded by the new headlights, as these include a camera-aided digital high-beam assistant.
Following its debut on the i8, the laser light technology will be applied to further BMW models.
Audi is also experimenting with laser light technology, which it recently unveiled as the Sport Quattro Laserlight Concept.
