Magna to supply Chevrolet Silverado EV battery enclosures

GM has chosen Tier 1 supplier Magna to supply battery enclosures for the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV. Production is expected to begin later this year at Magna’s St. Clair, Michigan, facility, which is undergoing a 740,000-square-foot expansion and where it currently produces enclosures for the GMC Hummer EV.

Battery enclosures, required by all EVs, house the high-voltage batteries, electrical components, sensors and connectors, and contribute to the vehicle frame’s structural and safety aspects while protecting battery components from impact, heat and water intrusion.
