You often hear about these new lighting technologies for vehicles, but how often do you actually know what they do? Here is Mercedes-Benz showing off what its most advanced system, the Multibeam LED headlamps, can do.

Available first in the CLS four-door coupe, the brand’s latest headlamp technology has just been introduced on the W213 Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Featuring a precision LED grid module with 84 LEDs in three rows, the German car maker calls this the first high-definition lighting system in the auto industry.

But rather than have you read all about its “precise deactivation of individual LED chips,” Adaptive High-Beam Assist Plus and what not, here’s a short video that explains it all better than words ever could.

The W213 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is expected to arrive in Malaysia by the third quarter of the year, but in the meantime, you can read all about the new model in our report of its global debut. You can also check out the car’s cool Remote Parking Pilot and Parking Pilot systems here.
