Magna’s 48 Volt Hybrid Transmission System Started Production with Stellantis

DCS Magnas 48 Volt Hybrid Transmission System Started Production with Stelantis 1 400x275

November 25, 2022


  • •Magna’s 48-Volt hybrid dual-clutch transmission made its debut on the Jeep Renegade and Compass e-Hybrid, Fiat 500 X and Tipo
  • •Production taking place in Magna’s Slovakia facility 
  • •Agreement includes additional hybrid models in the future for Europe


Magna’s 48 Volt hybrid transmission hit the market on the Jeep Renegade, Compass e-Hybrid, Fiat 500 X and Tipo, the first models from Stellantis to be equipped with a 48-Volt hybrid system. The two companies have signed a multi-program agreement.

Hybrid technologies are an important step on the path to lower emissions. Magna’s hybrid transmission achieves stringent CO2 targets and offers improved driving dynamics due to electric torque vectoring and traction support. 

Magna’s 48V 7-speed dual-clutch transmission for hybrids provides a maximum torque of 320 Nm and torque-split technology to optimize the efficiencies of the combustion engine (ICE) and the e-motor. The e-motor is capable of providing propulsion to the vehicle even when the ICE is switched off. This new transmission features independent on-demand cooling for the clutch and e-motor with a single oil circuit for cooling and lubrication, resulting in significant CO2 reductions in WLTC and real-world driving.

“Our scalable transmission technologies aid our customers in their transition to vehicle electrification which help to achieve regulatory targets. The transmission enhances both efficiency and performance. We are excited that Stellantis has awarded Magna this hybrid transmissions business across multiple vehicle models, a testament to our expertise and capabilities,” said Tom Rucker, President Magna Powertrain. 

Magna is producing the 48V hybrid transmission at its division in Kechnec, Slovakia. Further 48V hybrid transmissions are expected to be adopted in additional future Stellantis models.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
