PARIS, October 4, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Valeo is fitting full-LED headlights the ZB10 RENAULT and SEAT IBE concept cars exclusively presented at the Paris Motor Show.

In addition to low consumption, LEDs offer many other benefits, such as a long lifespan exceeding that of the vehicle, the compactness of the associated optical systems, and the freedom they offer designers in terms of customized vehicle styling, as illustrated by these two concept cars. The use of new-generation LEDs, coupled with a high-efficiency optical system, produces light that is close to natural daylight, thereby increasing safety. These new lighting systems are the fruit of a close partnership between Valeo and these automakers,
