Federal-Mogul has introduced an expanded and enhanced premium offering of Wagnerreplacement headlamp capsules to meet the needs of virtually any vehicle owner. The new premium Wagner line – featuring three highly differentiated, advanced-technology capsule designs – is offered in attractive new, retail-friendly packaging.

The Wagner premium capsule line now features expanded coverage and advanced technologies for popular Wagner BriteLite headlamps and newly redesigned, Xenon gas-charged Wagner TruView Plus headlamps. Federal-Mogul also has introduced innovative Wagner NightDefense headlamps, which provide an enhanced field of vision for improved driving safety.

“We are excited to now offer three differentiated premium technologies that meet the demands of today’s drivers. These sophisticated and proven technologies help consumers enhance driving comfort, confidence and safety in a full range of conditions,” said Mike McKee, product director, service products, Federal-Mogul.

Now available for a market-leading 98 per cent of registered passenger vehicles, Wagner BriteLite headlamps deliver 80 per cent more light to the road and project a beam pattern that is 120 feet longer than standard halogen headlamps. New Wagner TruView Plus capsules, available for 95 per cent of registered passenger vehicles, feature a Xenon gas charge and offer the “Purest, Whitest Light” among replacement capsules to provide the look of high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps.

New Wagner NightDefense capsules feature a tri-color/tri-zone coating that disperses light that is up to 40 per cent brighter for optimum viewing and project a beam pattern that is up to 60 feet longer than competing lamps. This unique technology projects a bright white light straight ahead for a deeper view, and an enhanced horizontal beam pattern with yellow light for an easier view of the street and road signs and to help reduce the glare of oncoming traffic.

“NightDefense capsules represent an important new benchmark in headlamp performance,” McKee said. “Consumers can now significantly enhance their driving vision through an easy and affordable upgrade.”
