Lighting technology

Audi Q5 40 TDI

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

Next-generation OLED lighting technology is available for the first time ever in the modified Q5. OLEDs are extremely efficient organic light-emitting diodes that generate a homogenous light surface. The optional OLED rear light is split into three tiles of six segments each, which enables Audi designers and developers to create different light designs and signatures from a single item of hardware.
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.
