BMW M4 Concept Iconic Lights has different lighting effects in different driving modes.

BMW M4 Concept Iconic Lights features a new generation of high-beam laser light technology, capable of lighting up up to 600 metres of pathway, in combination with BMW Selective Beam function which has anti- dazzle High-Beam Assistant. The system is further integrated with assistance systems and vehicle sensors for enhanced safety and comfort. It teams up with the car’s navigation system to illuminate corners way before reaching the spot, while a laser-based Dynamic Light Spot provides early warning of pedestrians or animals at dark from a distance of close to 100 metres.

BMW M4 Concept Iconic Lights are based on OLEDs (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) which produce light from organic semiconducting materials of just 1.4 mm thinness. OLEDs are used for taillights and rear turn signals as well, apart from head lamps. BMW M will be the first production BMW to get OLED taillights, slated for launch in 2016.
