SYLVANIA Automotive Launches Line of Durable LED Low-Beam Headlights for the Canadian Market
LEDs offer greater clarity and whiter light, designed to last the life of the vehicle
Hillboro, NH – SYLVANIA Automotive, the leader in automotive lighting solutions for the automotive aftermarket and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), today announced its new line of LED low beam headlights for the Canadian market. The line of LED bulbs, including the 9006 LED Headlight, H7 LED Headlight, and H11 LED Headlight, are the first line of SYLVANIA LED low-beam headlights commercially available in Canada.
The new line of LED low-beam headlights boasts a durable design that includes an active-cooled heat sink designed to maximize the performance of the LED system, allowing the bulb to hopefully last the life of a vehicle. Delivering 6000k of cool white light, the LED headlights offer a longer-lasting light, compared to halogen bulbs that typically deliver 3200k.
“As we continuously work to develop new product offerings for our customers and stay ahead of the competition, product quality and customer safety are always top of mind,” said SYLVANIA Automotive’s Head of Product Management, Juan Morales. “Our new LED low-beam headlights provide drivers throughout Canada with a longer-lasting and more rugged headlight, and the whiter light emitted can make a big impact with visibility, offering greater contrast to see obstacles better.”
SYLVANIA Automotive LED low-beam headlights are now available at automotive retailers throughout Canada, including Canadian Tire, and start at $199. The new line of LEDs will be showcased for the first time at the 2017 Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas, from Oct. 31 to Nov. 2, at Booth 2638 in the Sands Expo Center.
