BMW BLOG had the unique opportunity to experience the BMW i8's laser light technology first hand during a recent test drive of BMW's plug-in hybrid in the Los Angeles, California area.

Of the experience, BMW BLOG states:

"Compared to the standard LED lights, the optional laser lights ensures a high beam range of up to 600 meters. This means that the already high illumination range of the modern LED high beam is doubled. Thanks to the new laser technology, it is possible to increase energy efficiency by a further 30 percent compared to already highly power-saving LED light."

"BMW Laser Light illuminates the road ahead with a significantly higher light intensity without heating up the surrounding area. Laser diodes are ten times smaller than conventional light diodes."

Check out the video to see how the laser light technology performs in the real world.
