PHILIPS INTRODUCES ECOVISION – THE FIRST HEADLAMP BULBS THAT CAN ACTUALLY SAVE GAS

Environmentally friendly design lowers emissions, helps reduce global warming

Philips Automotive Lighting North America, a division of Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE:PHG), has launched its new EcoVision line of fuel-saving halogen headlight bulbs. Philips EcoVision's advanced energy-saving technology enables drivers to replace standard bulbs with ones that consume up to 20% less power.

EcoVision's unique bulb design uses a high performance filament and a proprietary gas composition that together can help to increase MPG by consuming less power. By switching to EcoVision, drivers can save up to four gallons of fuel over the life of the bulbs. By using less gas, drivers using EcoVision reduce their CO2 emissions, helping to fight global warming.

Philips EcoVision headlamp bulbs are street legal and DOT compliant. Based on Philips' recommendation to always replace bulbs in pairs, EcoVision headlamp bulbs are offered in two-bulb packages for 9003, 9004, 9005, 9006, 9007, 9008, H7, and H11 applications.
