Powertrain Winter Test 2022
Demonstrating our latest technologies on the snow and ice for the 2022 Winter tests
Magna welcomed representatives from more than 15 global car makers and more than 10 media outlets to test the technology demonstrators and serial applications under demanding climate and driving conditions on snow and ice, challenging the technologies to prove their functional advantages. At our annual onsite events in Northern Sweden and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, we debuted two brand new demo vehicles fitted with our latest eDrive and hybrid technologies: the EtelligentForce battery electric truck and EtelligentCommand PHEV solution.
Take a closer look at the technologies we put to the test on the frozen test tracks and lakes
