AURORA, Ontario, Canada, October 6, 2022 – To match pace with the automotive industry’s acceleration in cleaner mobility solutions, Magna is investing more than $120 million to establish and operate a new engineering center in Bengaluru, India to support e-mobility.

The 240,000 square-foot facility is expected to open in the first quarter of 2023 and will employ engineers and technical experts working on software and system development, simulation, testing and vehicle integration, as well as digital, data and cloud solutions for electric vehicle programs. Approximately 1,000 engineers and technical experts are expected to be hired by the end of 2023 with the capacity to add up to 250 more as needed.

With this new engineering center, we can further strengthen our vehicle systems development and IP creation, especially in the areas of e-mobility,” said Anton Mayer, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Magna International.

A ”Puja” groundbreaking ceremony will be held on October 17th at the Innovation Center with Magna executives.
