The automotive market is disrupted by new technologies in the fields of alternative propulsion systems and autonomous driving. Various new players have entered the market with innovative vehicle concepts. Yet, launching a vehicle successfully in time is not an easy task. It requires a competent engineering and manufacturing team following proven processes in a high-quality production environment, including production plants, and a reliable supplier and distributor network.
Magna is the first and only automotive supplier that provides complete vehicle engineering and manufacturing in a one-stop shop. With our 120 years of automotive experience, we have established a global network of partners and suppliers. Magna has developed more than 40 complete vehicles and derivatives and produced about 3.7 million vehicles. By having reliability as our main concern, we were able to guarantee that every project so far has started on schedule.
Automakers faces challenges in the form of two major market requirements. The first of these is that strong competition, along with government regulations, are forcing them to develop and produce vehicles faster and at lower cost. As a solution to this, more and more are using global platform sharing. The second challenges is that customers are demanding a large variety of models to meet their need for customized solutions. Fulfilling both requirements results in a large amount of organizational effort and financial investment that is hardly profitable.
