Philips new X-TremeVision Pro150 - the new standard in all-round halogen headlamps

Date: Monday 12 October 2020

The Philips name is synonymous with innovation in automotive lighting and is now introducing what it believes is potentially a game-changing all-round bulb in the halogen headlamp sector. Combining striking brightness with the kind of lifespan previously unavailable in such a high-performance bulb, Philips X-tremeVision Pro150 provides the visibility to keep drivers and their loved ones even safer on the road.

Philips original X-TremeVision was the performance-leading halogen bulb for many years, scooping numerous Headlamp of the Year awards and even Auto Express’s coveted Car Accessory of the Year honour.

See the road better with up to 150% brighter light
In the latest wave of new Philips Automotive lighting products, X-TremeVision has evolved further still. It now boasts +150% performance compared to the industry standard bulb - a figure which was previously class leading, while offering improved longevity and the same durability for which it was justly recognised.

High-performance beam throws light 70 m further
Philips X-tremeVision Pro150 can throw light up to 70 meters further ahead on the road, increasing a driver’s ability to react to potential hazards. Extending this safety distance means drivers, passengers and other road users can enjoy a safer drive.

More contrast and visibility with cool light
X-tremeVision Pro150 boasts a lifetime of up to 450 hours, which is one of the longest for such a powerful bulb. At 3400K temperature, it also has an extremely white beam, compared to the industry standard, which offers better contrast for objects lit up by its beam, helping to reduce fatigue and therefore further enhance safety.

This advance is made possible thanks to a high-performance filament, precise gradient coating on the glass and a new and unique mixture of noble gasses in which the filament operates.

“Advanced filament design provides greater precision and luminance for better illumination of the road, while new Philips Diamond Precision quartz-glass technology ensures more brightness.” said Mark Bülow, EMEA Senior Product Manager at Lumileds, who are the global licensees of Philips Automotive Lighting products.

As with the Quartz glass long-used on Philips Automotive headlamp bulbs, it helps protect the headlamp optic from UV damage, but the new Diamond Precision Quartz also has increased pressure and thermal shock resistance properties.

“This might just be the best all-round Halogen bulb that has yet been manufactured,” enthuses Richard Armstrong from Lumileds. “The potential it has as an upgrade bulb for so many cars makes it a really exciting new product for us. It does everything so well. I really think X-tremeVison Pro150 is a winner and can’t wait to get out into the marketplace with it.”
