Road-legal Philips Ultinon Pro6000 LED range extension in Germany
 
Suresnes, France – Lumileds today advances automotive lighting and improves road safety with the launch of the first road-legal H4-LED in Germany, from its Philips Ultinon Pro6000 LED retrofit range. This is a range extension to the H7-LED that was approved in Germany in May 2021. The new Philips Ultinon Pro6000 H4-LED bulb delivers up to 230% brighter light[1], and its plug-and play-design allows DIY’ers and mechanics to install it on their own. 
 
Safe road-legal H4-LED on the market worldwide
 
Approval of the Philips Ultinon Pro6000 H4-LED type by the German federal authorities means that drivers across the country can now legally upgrade their headlight bulbs from halogen to Philips LED lighting.
 
These premium Philips LED bulbs improve safety by boosting visibility and delivering a perfect beam pattern that illuminates the road ahead without dazzling other road users.
 
A comprehensive testing program in collaboration with TÜV Rheinland confirmed the new Philips LED bulb’s high performance, enabling homologation by the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA). The “ABG” approval certificate was granted by the KBA based on national regulation §22a StVZO enabling use in selected vehicle models[2]. Therefore, Lumileds can now offer its latest LED retrofit technology to German drivers.
 
We believe that the only way to develop a road-legal bulb is to focus on safety: the safety of drivers, passengers, bicyclists, pedestrians, and anyone else using the roadways,” said Swati Singh, EMEA Product Manager for LED at Lumileds. “We will continue to provide ever-increasing coverage of the car marques and models available in Germany”, she added.
 
Up to 230% brighter light for both performance and style
 
Once fitted, the Philips Ultinon Pro6000 H4-LED provides up to 230% brighter light compared to the minimum legal standard for halogen bulbs. That light comes courtesy of the advance Lumileds LUXEON Altilon LEDs – the same LEDs used by automotive Original Equipment Manufacturers.
 
Its cool white beam with a stylish color temperature of up to 5800 Kelvin – the same color temperature used by Original Equipment Manufacturers – provides a comfortable driving experience and reduces strain on the eyes.
 
The Philips Ultinon Pro6000 H4-LED also features greater durability with up to 3,000 hours’ lifetime. Advanced AirBoost technology and a built-in fan for active cooling contribute to long-lasting reliability.
 
Plug-and-play installation from best-in-class design
 
Drivers can now convert their halogen headlamps to the brighter, approved light of Philips Ultinon Pro6000 H4-LED on a wide range of car models[3].
 
Thanks to its brand-new, one-piece design, this bulb fits easily into existing headlamp units. Integrated electronics ensure a compact footprint, making installation easy for DIYers or mechanics even where space is tight – just plug and play. 
 
Renowned quality and enhanced safety
 
Technologically advanced Philips automotive lighting is renowned in the automotive industry and has been for over 100 years. The Philips Automotive Grade Quality products are designed and developed following strict quality control processes (including applicable ISO norms), leading to consistently high production standards.
 
Philips Ultinon Pro6000 LED range in Germany is available in the most common headlight bulb types, H4-LED and H7-LED.
