Suresnes, France – August 1st, 2023 – The latest innovative additions to the Philips Ultinon Drive 5100 series of LED auxiliary lights are designed to bring more intense and broader illumination for great visibility. These new lamps combine powerful brightness with a rugged design and are 100% road-legal in Europe. Precision engineered by leading automotive lighting supplier Lumileds, the Philips Ultinon Drive 5100 series provides enhanced brightness for cars and trucks on and off-road.

Philips UD5101R: drivers can spot hazards up to 552 meters away!

The new Philips UD5101R LED driving light comes with two light functions. On-road driving brings drivers outstanding road-legal brightness and greater safety, illuminating the road ahead for up to 335 meters[1] in ECE mode. Its effective 2700 lumens generate intense illumination far and wide. This enables drivers to react faster on dark, rural roads. The cool light color temperature of 6500 Kelvin produces daylight conditions, improving contrast and helping drivers stay focused. Off-road, drivers can opt for increased intensity of 7100 lumens, switching on the Boost function to unleash the full power and increase the beam length to 552 meters1. With our Boost function bringing more powerful illumination, off-road driving is safer.

The extra LED position lights of our Philips Ultinon Drive 5101R allow drivers to be seen properly on side roads or in parking areas. They can express their style and personality by choosing light colors, brilliant-white or -amber LED.

The Philips UD5101R LED driving light meets ECE-R149 and -R148 standards and is 100% road-legal for high-beam and position-light functions.

Philips UD5104L: 6-inch light bar

The new Philips UD5104L LED light bar provides a brilliant light beam that illuminates the road ahead for up to 298 meters1. Its effective 2000 lumens are homogeneously distributed in an optimized indirect beam, generating wide illumination with reduced glare for everyday use. The 6500 Kelvin color temperature produces a cool white beam for enhanced visibility.  

Our LED light bar has extra dual-color LED position lights: intense amber or cool white.

The Philips UD5104L LED light bar meets ECE-R149 and -R148 standards and is 100% road-legal for high-beam and position-light functions.

Optimal illumination

Our Philips UD5100 series features a patented optical reflector design incorporating MirrorFlux technology, which maximizes the efficiency and performance of the light beam. Combined with our innovative SafeBeam technology, the light is precisely directed to the areas where it is most needed, allowing drivers to identify potential hazards far ahead and along the sides of the road. All of this is achieved while ensuring the safety of other road users, providing optimal illumination for everyday road use.

The built-in toughness of Philips LED driving lights

The entire Philips Ultinon Drive 5100 series lights are built to withstand the toughest conditions. This allows for excellent heat management and consistently high light output throughout the drivers’ journey.

Rated IK07, it is shock-resistant to ensure faultless performance on and off the road. Its unbreakable polycarbonate lens can take any hit without damage or scratches.

With their sturdy one-piece body, the Philips Ultinon Drive 5100 LED auxiliary lights can withstand the wettest conditions. IP68 and IP69K certifications mean they will perform wherever the road leads and whatever the weather. And it will be more than a match for any power washer drivers use to clean their vehicles afterward. The convenient DT connector guarantees a perfect connection

The Philips Ultinon Drive 5100 series offers ultimate corrosion protection with its anodized pre-treated and automotive-grade powder-top-coat body. Its mounting brackets are made of coated stainless steel, which is corrosion-free. It can withstand snow, ice, and even salt.
