The Emergence of Automotive LED Lighting

Hanging LED Light Fixtures
 
The light emitting diode (LED) is technology that actually goes back more than a century, but only in the past two decades has it emerged to become arguably the most popular type of energy-saving illumination. Today, LED lights are replacing the incandescent bulbs all thanks to their energy efficiency, longevity and surprising durability.

One area where LED lighting has really made strides is in the automotive world where LED light fixtures for headlights, taillights and everything in-between are quickly becoming standard features. The question is why LED light manufacturers have pursued this type of lighting for vehicles which are not normally thought of as being in need of energy efficient light bulbs.
