The designer was proud of teh fact teh LED taillaights were distinctive. They are, but. I would like to see a more practical and imaginative use of LEDs. Replace all light bulbs with LEDs. No more burnt out bulbs. This would be a real customer-engineer related advantage.

LEDs moving quickly into many price points

Its good to see how fast LEDs are finding their way onto automotive lighting applications. Especially on the Dodge Dart, a much lower priced consumer segment compared to the first introduction on Audi.  It was only a couple of years ago, that Audi introduced the bright white LEDs outlining the headlamps and touted it as industry leading innovation (which it was).   Only 2 years later, many vehicles have the same feature, and now even seen low cost after-market products in the Wal-Mart automotive section to dress up your grill with an adhesive based strip wired into the running lights.  I don't recall another accessory feature having as fast an adoption rate across so many consumer segments.

nice to see the appearance of how led taillights were designed in the back end of dodge dart. It indicates sense of style. They last longer like those low cost Headlight Bulbs still the same performance with expensive ones. It offers safe ride with maximum brightness plus quality and stylish look. Looking forward to see new designs from it.

The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
