Osram is the first manufacturer to offer approved LED-based automotive retrofit lamps for the German market. This development is an absolute novelty, as there have been no legal LED replacement lamps for headlight applications until now. With Osram Night Breaker LEDs, drivers will have a significantly improved vision and visibility on the roads.

Hans-Joachim Schwabe, CEO of Osram Automotive, said: “Road approval is an important step that we have been working towards for years. With our LED lamps, drivers can upgrade their halogen lighting to the latest state-of-the-art products legally, easily and cost-effectively.”

The Night Breaker LED H7 from Osram is the first LED retrofit lamp to pass the extensive test procedures of TÜV Süd, making it a legal replacement for H7 halogen lamps in tested vehicle models. This is confirmed by the German Federal Motor Transport Authority, with the granting of the road approval. Currently, the approval covers low-beam light found in many common vehicle models registered in Germany. These include popular models such as the BMW 2 Series, Audi A3 and A4 or Ford Mondeo. The number of vehicles is continuously expanding through ongoing tests and approval procedures.
