We've seen the other German car manufacturers - Audi and BMW - move onto laser head-lamp technology. Looks like Mercedes-Benz is finally catching up since it recently introduced its next-gen LED head-lamps.
Mercedes-Benz said that the company will soon begin producing head-lights with 84 LEDs; compared to the current 24 LEDs in the CLS, it is over three times the number. The company also confirmed plans to incorporate High Range LED high beams into their LED head-lamps in the near future. This additional high beam will employ state-of-the-art high-performance LEDs to provide high beam ranges of over 600 meters (1968 feet) in driving situations without any oncoming traffic or vehicles ahead.
The company also took a dig at laser technology used in head-lamps by saying that "LED technology achieves this performance at markedly lower costs and with a manageable degree of complexity."
From what we can see of the head-lamps, it also previews the new look of the S-Class Coupe. We will know exactly which car it is soon.
