Lighting technology

Audi prologue

Audi is the world’s leading brand for automotive lighting technology, and new solutions such as Matrix laser headlights continue to drive progress. In addition to its function, the lighting of Audi models is also of central importance as a design element. The lighting visualizes the brand’s core values – progressiveness, sportiness and sophistication to a great extent.

Highlights

Audi leads the way in lighting technology and design. In the new A8, the technologies interact intelligently with the surroundings. For example, Audi laser lighting is used here for the first time with HD Matrix LED high beams.
Audi opens another chapter of innovations in automotive lighting technology with the e-tron Sportback concept. The brand with the four rings was the first in the world to adopt full LED headlights.
The TT RS is equipped with LED rear lights as standard. Upon request, Audi presents an innovation: Matrix OLED rear lights (organic light-emitting diode) in a 3D design.
