PARIS, October 2, 2008 - Valeo announces that the rear lighting of the new Volvo XC60 features its new MicroOptics(TM) technology.

Valeo is the first automotive supplier to offer a unique lighting and signaling style, using a new optical surface that spreads light uniformly. MicroOptics(TM) can diffuse a fully configurable light source. The light from just a few LEDs, for example, can be evenly spread across a very large area, such as rear lighting. It is also possible to produce shading effects that give the lights a 3-D appearance.

Compliant with current regulations, this technology offers yet greater design freedom such as differentiated daytime and nighttime styling. It can be applied both to front and rear exterior lighting, even if they have complex shapes.

Combined with LEDs, MicroOptics(TM) technology offers the benefits of low power consumption and a lifetime equal to that of the vehicle itself.
