The Audi Q7 Equipped With Valeo’s Tri-Xenon Smart Lighting

September 15, 2009

FRANKFURT, September 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Valeo’s Tri-Xenon
lighting technology is being launched as a world first on the new Audi Q7. In
addition to traditional high and low beams, the module has a “highway”
function activated at 115 km/h which doubles the range of conventional Xenon
low beams (from 80 m to 140 m), without dazzling other drivers.

Depending on the orientation of the module, three additional functions
are available:

    - the "rain" function, which counters the reflective effect of
      water on the road and improves visibility of the roadside;

    - the "city" function, which redirects the beam below 30 km/h
      to improve lighting of the roadsides, and particularly intersections;

    - the "tourism" function, which adapts the beam in countries
      where traffic flows in the opposite direction.

One of the main advantages of this module is its compactness: as with
Valeo’s Xenon Bi-function module, it is the smallest and lightest module on
the market.

Multifunctional, compact and light, Valeo’s Tri-Xenon module makes it
even safer to drive at night, in all conditions and in all places.

production and sale of components, integrated systems and modules for cars
