Magna Steyr to engineer EV architecture for BAIC
Automotive News China | 2018/4/13

BEIJING -- Magna Steyr, the vehicle engineering unit of Canadian supplier Magna International, will develop a next-generation smart electric vehicle architecture for state-owned Chinese automaker BAIC Motor Co.

Magna Steyr was chosen for its innovation and cost-effectiveness in manufacturing and engineering as well as its full-scale electronic/electrical architecture and lightweight technologies, Magna said this week.  

Last week, Magna International formed a joint venture with a component subsidiary of Guangzhou Automobile Co. to make composite liftgates in the central China city of Changsha.

With the addition of the BAIC partnership, Magna will have established 50 plants in China producing automotive exteriors, body structures and chassis, powertrain and vision components as well as locks and seats.  

Although BAIC makes gasoline-powered vehicles, it is a major EV maker in China, delivering roughly 25,000 EVs in 2017. It also has vehicle partnerships with Daimler and Hyundai Motor Co.
