Technology game changer: Magna’s 48-volt transfer case leads array of CO2-fighting products


Magna is on the fast track to vehicle electrification. With its all-new industry-leading 48-volt transfer case and an array of other 48-volt products, Magna continues to help automakers meet increasingly stringent global CO2 and fuel-economy regulations.

Magna's etelligentDrive eDS 48V High Performance System is one the first mild-hybrid transfer cases available to automakers. Additionally, it's a four-wheel drive system that provides CO2 savings of up to 10% and better fuel efficiency compared to a two-wheel drive system.

"With our expanding portfolio of 48-volt products, highlighted by the new mild-hybrid transfer case, we're giving automakers the flexibility to easily integrate 48-volt drives into their existing drivetrain layouts," said Swamy Kotagiri, Magna CTO and president of Magna Powertrain. "Our electrification strategy is focused on the need to create powertrain efficiencies while also improving driving dynamics and safety for the consumer."

Magna continues to be a supplier of choice with its comprehensive portfolio of powertrain products. The company is well-positioned to lead global automakers through the progression from internal combustion engines to hybrids to battery electric vehicles, all with a focus on optimizing vehicle dynamics.
