GUIDED BY GLOBAL AUTOMOTIVE TRENDS.
DRIVEN BY eTELLIGENCE.
While there are clear trends overall towards heightened safety, increased flexibility, added automation, and stronger connectivity to mobile services, the mobility needs of customers are also becoming increasingly individualized. There is no one customer of tomorrow, and OEMs and end consumers define their individual needs depending on the regional market.
Federal CO2 regulations and additional local requirements will significantly change future vehicle architectures and individual driving behavior. Beginning 2021, the permitted emissions for all new vehicles in Europe may not exceed 95g CO2/km. A proposal for a further reduction by 35% until 2030 is currently reviewed.
Increasing urbanization and the rise of megacities, especially in Asia, are creating the need for new mobility concepts. Concepts that ensure a high quality of urban life by providing low-noise, zero-emission vehicles. As one of the expanding automotive markets, China alone has increased the number of electric and plug-in hybrids by more than four times from 2015 to 2017.
On the one hand, the rising demand for crude oil and the increasing difficulties in supplying it force us to deal even more consciously and efficiently with existing fossil fuels. On the other hand, other resources like rare earth metals or lithium need to be considered when talking about electrification. The advances in mobile technology and a rapidly expanding public infrastructure of charging stations facilitate convenient access to eMobility that will speed up the availability of clean transportation solutions.
We are speeding up eMobility today.With future proven, scalable eDrive concepts.
Automotive manufacturers are always thinking miles ahead – in development as well as in production. To best support automakers with future eMobility solutions, suppliers need to develop completely new ways and mindsets.
Magna Powertrain has already passed important milestones on the road to eMobility, with maximum scalability accoding to different market and customer requirements. Drawing on their extensive vehicle know-how and eDrive experience, our research and development teams are powering ahead. New innovations such as Dedicated Hybrid Powertrains and a variety of scalable solutions are just around the corner.
