Expanding of the LEDriving fog family by fog lights with colored ornaments

In difficult weather conditions such as rain, fog, and snow, the LEDriving fog light family from Osram helps improve visibility for drivers. In addition to the familiar LEDriving FOG and LEDriving F1 products, Osram now for the first time offers a fog light with colored ornaments. LEDriving FOG PL is available in five different colors. Like LEDriving FOG and LEDriving F1, it is certified to ECE regulations (Economic Commission for Europe).

LEDriving FOG PL installed

All LEDriving fog light models produce a white fog light with a color temperature of up to 6000 kelvin and cast an extremely homogenous light on the road thanks to their specially designed reflection/projection unit. The wide emission angle ensures a large field of vision so that drivers can identify hazards earlier and better. The LEDriving fog lights can be used as replacements for a large number of conventional round halogen fog lights with a diameter of 90 millimeter. Drivers can therefore quite easily upgrade to more powerful LED technology. For Volkswagen, Nissan, Infiniti and Toyota cars there are additional attachments available for all fog light models. The lights are compatible with hybrid cars and vehicles with automatic start-stop systems.

LEDriving FOG PL: five colors to match your car

With LEDriving FOG PL, Osram is for the first time offering a combined daytime running light and fog light with colored ornaments which will enhance the styling of the car even when the lights are not in use. There is a choice of five colors for creating an individual look: Silver, Gold, Blue, Pink or Orange – either to match the car finish or provide a neat contrast. The use of color emphasizes the round design of the front lighting in the form of an eagle's eye, giving the car an unmistakable appearance. LEDriving FOG PL is suitable for 12 V systems. They are easy to install because there is no control box to connect. The LEDriving FOG PL with its low energy consumption compared to conventional fog lights is also a winner from the economic point of view. It is available in the specified colors in retail outlets for an RRP of 249.99 euros.

Multifunctional: LEDriving FOG

This famous all-rounder and excellent performer in the LEDriving FOG family also combines daytime running light and fog light in a single unit. Like the FOG PL and F1, it is equipped with high-quality, high-performance LED technology that provides homogenous distribution of light with no visible LED points. LEDriving FOG is suitable for 12 V or 24 V systems. This fog light with impact-resistant lens has the same diameter and shape as the LEDriving FOG PL. The RRP of the LEDriving FOG is 329.00 euros.

LEDriving F1: Single function as a fog light

The LEDriving F1 from Osram is purely an LED fog light and can replace most standard fog light. Installation is simple because there is no control box. It is ideal as a replacement light, an upgrade for vehicles because previously installed fog lights are generally based on halogen, whereas the LEDriving F1 uses modern LED technology. LEDriving F1 is available for an RRP of 99.99 euros.
