At the 2015 CES, BMW introduced the M4 Concept Iconic Lights with new OLED headlights which produce light from wafer-thin semiconducting layers of organic material. The OLED elements are very thin, with a thickness of just 1.4 millimeters.
On the BMW M4 Concept Iconic Lights model, BMW Organic Light is used in the tail lights and rear direction indicators. By activating the OLED segments individually, it is possible to create different rear lighting effects in different driving modes.
Whereas normally the L-shape is wide and uniformly illuminated, in Sport mode a different-shaped light pattern can be used by activating only some of the OLED segments. The rear light then appears as a narrow, focused and sharply defined “strip” of light.
An M car will arrive in 2016 to celebrate BMW’s 100 years of existence and will feature the OLED technology.
