Cars with horizontal tail lights?

I’m looking for a car with horizontal tail lights, as I don’t think the rear ends of cars get enough love. What cars have horizontal tail lights?

The Audi Q8, Aston Martin Vantage, Kia Proceed, Lincoln Continental, and Mercedes EQS all have horizontal tail lights.
LED technology has made horizontal light bars more common. The technology allows carmakers to install a horizontal light bar across a vehicle’s rear, usually connecting the two rear light clusters.
Audi Q8
’s Q8 SUV has a thin LED light bar connecting its rear light clusters—the Q8 was the first Audi to have this design.
Aston Martin Vantage The rear horizontal tail light on the Aston Martin Vantage gives this supercar a third brake light. The Vantage horizontal light bar is unique in that it shoots slightly upward from both rear light clusters and over the Aston Martin badge before running across the rear hatch.
Kia Proceed
’s Proceed features an LED strip that runs horizontally across this fastback. The strip is actually not connected to either rear tail light, but it is so subtle that it’s hard to notice without really looking for it.
Lincoln Continental The Continental’s horizontal tail light seamlessly connects both tail light clusters on the Continental. The folks at
liked the look so much that now all Lincolns feature the horizontal light strip.
Mercedes EQS None of
’ gas-powered models have a horizontal light strip, but the electric EQS crossover does. This horizontal light bar mirrors the chrome bumper just below it, matching its understated beauty.
