For more than a hundred years, HELLA has been a technological leader for drivers who want to be sure they can see and be seen. Modern xenon technology is a proven milestone for both driving safety and comfort. With a colour temperature of 4,300 K, twice the brightness of halogen lamps and with around three times their luminous efficacy, the white light of these new generation xenon lamps ensures safety and relaxed driving.

The newly developed HELLA Ultra Plus +70% lamps have a colour temperature of up to 5000 K, which is almost as much as modern vehicles' extremely white LED daytime running lights, offering maximum illumination and visibility similar to daylight.

Advantages of HID lamps


  • Bright and broad light distribution
  • Long service life
  • Low power consumption
  • High colour temperature for whiter light
  • Homogenous light distribution (less shadows)
  • Vibration-resistant

HELLA bulbs that change not only what you see, but also how your car is seen. With higher colour temperatures that are similar to HID bulbs, HELLA Design bulbs are closer to daylight with a crisp white light for the design-conscious drivers.

The “whiter” light is closer to LED front position lights, now becoming very common in new cars, and therefore better matches other light functions.

HELLA Design bulbs with the suffix CB (Cool Blue) or BV (Blue Vision) are compliant to ECE standards, so are legal for use. Other brands may offer higher colour temperature bulbs however they are typically illegal, as they have no compliance.
