For 100 years, Philips has been at the forefront of the automotive lighting industry, introducing technological innovations that have become standard on modern automobiles. Today, one in two cars in Europe and one in three worldwide is equipped with Philips lighting
Award-winning car lamp manufacturer
Our lamps are often rewarded by automotive experts
Philips is the inventor of Xenon HID technology
Xenon HID (High Intensity Discharge) lamps offer twice as much light for safer driving in all conditions. As a matter of fact, the intense white light produced by the Xenon HID lamps is comparable to daylight. Studies have demonstrated that xenon automotive lighting helps drivers to concentrate on the road and to distinguish obstacles and road signs much faster than traditional lamps.
Philips car lamps are highly UV resistant
Philips special anti-UV coating technology protects the headlights against harmful ultraviolet radiation, making Philips UV-coated quartz glass perfect for all driving conditions and ensuring their longevity
Philips car lamps are made of high-quality quartz glass
UV-Quartz glass is stronger than hard glass and highly resistant to temperature extremes and vibrations, which eliminates the risk of explosion. Philips quartz-glass lamps are able to withstand severe thermal shock. With the capability of increased pressure inside the lamp, UV-quartz glass is able to produce a more powerful light.
Respecting the high-quality standards of the ECE homologation
Philips automotive products and services are considered best-in-class in the Original Equipment Manufacturer market and the aftermarket. Manufactured from high quality products and tested to the highest specifications, our products are designed to maximise the safety and comfort of our customers’ driving experience. Our entire product range is thoroughly tested, controlled and certified (ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and QSO 9000) to the highest ECE requirements. Put simply, this is quality you can trust.
Better visibility for safer driving
Xenon X-tremeVision provides you with a better reactivity thanks to earlier recognition of obstacles and traffic signs. Light is a fundamental part of the driving experience and light is the first and only part of the safety circle that actually helps prevent accidents. Philips promotes active safety protection to prevent accidents by increasing overall visibility and road illumination; as a matter of fact the 4800 K colour temperature increases the visual comfort.
Xenon X-treme vision is the ultimate performance solution
Xenon X-tremeVision lamps are engineered with Philips Xenon technology for ultimate performance. Producing a longer beam, Xenon X-treme vision helps you to see obstacles earlier and improves the side perception. By producing even more light, Xenon X-treme vision lamps satisfy the most demanding drivers while maintaining their high Original Equipment quality and superior performance.
Philips car lamps are highly resistant to humidity
Only a burning bulb made of quartz glass can resist thermal shocks, such as a drop of cold water touching the hot bulb, which can happen when you drive through water with a broken headlight unit.
