High Voltage Electrified Products
Best-in-class electrified platforms for an emission-free future.
We have it all.
Electrification is in full swing and range and efficiency are still one of the most important criteria for the driver. We accept this challenge and are constantly working to further develop our electric drives. Our goal: Best-in-Class (BIC) efficiency, safety, dynamism and comfort.
Magna's high-voltage portfolio covers the entire product spectrum for electric vehicles and full and plug-in hybrid vehicles, from individual components to complete systems – from eaxles, eDrive transmissions and highly integrated eDrives to solutions for full and plug-in hybrid vehicles. Our eDrive platform approach offers maximum flexibility through cross-project synergies with maximum scalability from 50 - 250 kW, while our eDrive portfolio provides systems with 400V to 800V operating voltage.
Latest eDrive Innovation:
Magna eDrive System High HE
Magna's latest high-power eDrive System delivers world class attributes on efficiency, power-to-weight ratio, torque density and sustainability.
Magna’s 800V eDrive is based on a KPI driven generation approach and can be applied as a highly efficient primary or complementary drive with optional eDecoupling to battery electric vehicles from the C, D and E segments. It delivers a peak power of 250 kW and a peak axle torque of 5,000 Nm.
Designed as a drop-in solution, the upcoming eDrive generation incorporates several new advanced technologies to offer significant reductions in weight and size compared to the current generation. One industry-first advancement is to rotate the eDrive 90° around the drive axis which allows improved system integration. Another new to market technology is Magna’s next gen High-Voltage Embedding SiC power module with less parts and interfaces creating higher efficiency.
Magna’s new Active Fluid Control systems (AFC) is another outstanding technology in the next gen eDrive for increased efficiency. AFC consists of a reversible electric pump unit for a fully active controllable fluid management. In combination with an intelligent functional software, the Magna Thermal Operational Strategy, it enables an on-demand distribution of cooling/lubrication oil to mechanical and electrical components of the eDrive.
Weighing only 75 kg and with a 20% reduction in z dimension, it allows for easier integration into the rear and front vehicle space. The system achieves more than 93% efficiency in real-world driving (including WLTC and highway) leveraging its highly efficient gearbox. This significantly improves efficiency across a wide range of vehicle speeds, making it more versatile. To increase flexibility eDrives can also be equipped with eDecoupling and park lock.
Our new eDrives exhibit enhanced product and production sustainability, as well as improved system integration. They require less aluminum and rare earth materials, reducing CO2 emissions during production by approximately 20 %.

Highest flexibility for multiple applications
Usually in hybrid architectures, to enable boosting and recuperation, an e-machine must be added to the transmission or engine. However, this also leads to a critical cost-benefit question. With the new Dedicated Hybrid Drives (DHD) we simplified our existing hybrid concepts and utilized our long-term development experience with hybridized dual-clutch transmissions. We added a strong e-machine, shifted the dynamic operation towards it while standardizing the engine operation, and reduced the number of gears.
DHD offer best-in-class electrical performance and efficiency, outstanding convenience and adapt to real-world requirements in different vehicle segments and markets. Magna is looking at a complete systems approach to both conventional and electric platforms, so watch out for more DHD variants as they are developed.
