Magna is growing its electrification customer base with a newly awarded contract from a North America-based OEM to supply a specialized primary rear eDrive system for one of the company’s high-end niche vehicle platforms.
The highly complex system, a variant of Magna’s 800V eDS Duo, delivers 726 kW of power and 8,000 Nm of torque. The solution integrates two e-motors, two inverters, and two gearboxes into a single package.
Magna’s responsibilities encompass the design of the gearbox and housing, the cooling system, and the integration of the e-motors and inverters to ensure reliability, efficiency, and continuous power levels.
“We are dedicated to assisting our customers in their transition to electrification by providing them with industry-leading electrified platforms for a sustainable, emission-free future,” said Diba Ilunga, President Magna Powertrain. “This award reflects our expertise in electric powertrain system engineering and integration, as well as our collaborative approach with a highly valued customer to deliver cutting-edge solutions.”
The system will be manufactured at Magna’s facility in Ramos, Mexico, with serial production scheduled to start within the next few years.
