Magna has announced that it has received a major order from a European-based global premium OEM to supply its new eDrive system (eDS Mid). The eDrive system is planned for 2027 SUV/sedan models, with production expected to begin in 2026.
Magna’s eDS Mid is a compact, high-speed electric motor that offers a scalable power range from 100 kW to 140 kW and is optimized for 800 V. As a high-voltage electric drive system for electric AWD applications, it enables fast engagement through a new decoupling system and delivers a high-efficiency inverter with silicon carbide (SiC) technology that contributes to industry-leading efficiency, drivability and safety.
It also delivers up to 2,000 Nm of torque and weighs under 72 kg, resulting in reduced weight and volume compared to other products available on the market. Production of the eDrive system takes place at the two climate-neutral plants in Kechnec (Slovakia) and Lannach (Austria).
“The electrified drive technologies of the future are already being developed today. We are rising to the challenge of innovating and bringing scalable technology solutions to market that our customers need,” said Diba Ilunga, President Magna Powertrain. “This new business marks an important milestone in our electrification strategy as we continue to consistently pursue new innovations and solutions to drive the fast-growing EV sector.” www.magna.com
