Then, the maker could market an actual "Eco-bright" headlight (something that these new Sylvanias are not) due to a low power draw and long life expectancy. They could be sold at a premium...Instead of using lots of small ones they could use just a couple of the super powerful singles.
And you can bet they would be - negating the potential fiscal benefits of buying them.
