Magna has a comprehensive product range, therefore our interest for new technology is very broad. That is one reason why we have also engaged with companies outside of traditional automotive.  Industries such as medical, aerospace and software are working on or already have many technologies that can be applied to automotive especially as we move closer to full autonomy and more electrification.  Technologies that include biosciences, artificial intelligence, big data, etc., are all areas that cross industries. 

Our objective is simple, we want the venturing and innovation world to better understand Magna, our ability to commercialize innovation and our position to lead in the transformation of the vehicle, the automotive industry and the future mobility landscape in general.
