eDrive Gearboxes

Compact and efficient gearboxes for eDrives in a single housing. Well-defined bolt-on interface for the e-motor allows a convenient assembly. Complete line-up of variants and features..



Magna’s electro-magnetic eDecoupling acts as a stand alone or integrated power flow decoupler for EV applications. With quick activation times, superior NVH behaviour via integrated powertrain controls and compact packaging, the Magna eDecoupling increases EV range by reducing drag torque of e-motor and gearbox in primary and secondary eDrive systems.

eTorque Vectoring

eTorque Vectoring

Magna’s proprietary Twin-Clutch eTorque Vectoring system with corresponding software and controls supports best-in-class dynamics and safety up to 300 kW power per axle for BEV, HEV, and PHEV vehicles.

Magna also supplies a Duo Drive (2 E-motor) eTorque Vectoring system for applications that require more than 300 kW power per axle.

E-motor Core Stack

E-motor Stator & Rotor Lamination Core Stacks

Magna offers e-motor cores for electrified powertrains – featuring an advanced dot bonding process, which not only improves power density and weight reduction through higher stacking factor, but also requires lower activation temperature reducing process CO2 footprint.

Mechanical Modules and Components

eClutch Products

eCoupling Plus

Our eCoupling Plus is an electromagnetically-actuated multi-mode device that connects or disconnects power flow in HEV and BEV powertrains, with an added one-way overrun feature. It enables added power flow options for hybridization and EVs via three+ functional modes that have been combined into one unit to save space and cost. It can also be scaled to accommodate various torque ranges, while simultaneously reducing power consumption and reducing CO2.


Electric One-Way Clutch

Our Electric Selectable Reverse One-Way Clutch products replace traditional wet friction clutch packs and mechanical one way clutches, yielding a number of benefits. In addition to weight reduction, transmission architecture is simplified because hydraulic circuits are not required. More importantly, parasitic drag is reduced by as much as 10%, decreasing CO2 emissions.

Magna’s eCoupling is an electromagnetically-actuated ON/OFF coupling that connects or disconnects power flow in HEV and BEV applications. Multiple modes are possible enabling connection of two rotating elements, such as an eMotor’s connection into a powertrain. It can also be scaled to accommodate various torque ranges, while simultaneously reducing power consumption and reducing CO2 by reducing parasitic drag common with other technologies like friction clutches.

eSelectable Grounding Clutch

Magna’s eSelectable Grounding Clutch is an electromechanically-actuated clutch that locks rotating elements to a powertrain housing. Application suggestions include locking a shaft or gear to a transmission case, or locking a planetary ring gear for speed actuation. Numerous beneficial attributes include a compact and scalable design that can accommodate various torque ranges, no parasitic drag loss while open, and system protection through its unique ratcheting function.

Lightweight Products

Leading the way towards a lighter future

Magna’s innovative metal-forming capabilities and advanced materials expertise allow us to produce parts from alternate materials that are lighter and stronger, increasing driveline efficiency compared to their steel counterparts.
