Hella's Full-LED Headlamps to be 2009 PACE Award Finalist

It’s reported that Hella KGaA Hueck & Company, a global supplier of automotive lighting and electronic equipment based in Germany, became a finalist in the 2009 Automotive News PACE (Premier Automotive Suppliers' Contribution to Excellence) Award program for developing the industry's first full LED headlamps in North America for the Cadillac Escalade Platinum.

Hella's LED headlamp technology is used for low- and high-beam functions on the recently introduced 2009 model Cadillac Escalade Platinum. The Cadillac Escalade Platinum is reportedly the first high-volume vehicle in the world to be equipped with LED headlamps. LEDs emit light considerably closer to daylight, improving perception when driving during twilight and darkness, as well as increasing overall driver comfort and safety.

Hella's full-LED headlamps also last up to 20 times longer than traditional automotive lighting. According to Dr. Martin Fischer, president of Hella Electronics Corporation and Hella Corporate Center USA, LED technology makes new lighting functions possible by creating innovative styling and differentiation options for vehicle manufacturers, they are honored to have been selected as one of 25 finalists for the PACE Awards.
