Magna unveils its next-generation 800 V eDrive solution

Magna has unveiled its next generation 800 V eDrive solution, which it says offers improved efficiency, power-to-weight ratio and torque density.

Magna claims that its 75 kg next-generation eDrive is lighter, 20% shorter in height and faster than its prior generation eDrive, providing a longer driving range. Rotating the eDrive 90° around the drive axis improves system integration in the front and rear vehicle area. The system delivers up to 93% efficiency in real-world driving, based on Worldwide harmonized Light duty Test Cycle (WLTC) and highway testing. 

Magna’s next-generation eDrive can be applied as a primary or complementary secondary drive solution with an optional eDecoupling unit for vehicles in the C, D, and E segments. It delivers a peak power of 250 kW and a peak axle torque of 5,000 Nm.

“We have successfully reduced our reliance on aluminum and heavy rare earth materials, resulting in a significant reduction of CO₂ emissions during production by approximately 20% compared to previous generation eDrives,” said Diba Ilunga, President of Powertrain at Magna.
