Magna Awarded Dual-Clutch Transmissions Contract by BMW Group

BMW Group chose Magna to build dual-clutch transmissions which becomes the largest contract for transmission technologies in Magna’s history.

BMW Group just awarded Magna a multi-year contract for transmission technologies. The contract includes all front-wheel drive dual-clutch transmissions, including hybrid transmission variants and will be used in more than 170 different vehicle applications.

This new award is another result of Magna’s commitment to delivering high-quality, flexible and innovative transmissions,” said Tom Rucker, President of Magna Powertrain. “Our scalable dual-clutch transmissions enhance drivability while simultaneously providing optimal levels of efficiency, which makes our product a perfect match for BMW.”

Based on Magna’s website, the hybrid transmission with torque-split technology can be used in many applications as they are fully scalable. “[…] torque-split technology allows use of three powertrain designs on a single platform: a conventional powertrain with an internal combustion engine and dual-clutch transmission, a mild hybrid with an internal combustion engine and a 48 V electric motor integrated into the hybrid transmission, and finally, a plug-in hybrid with an internal combustion engine and a 400 V electric motor integrated into the hybrid transmission.”

Magna factories in Neuenstein, Germany, and Kechnec, Slovakia will be building the BMW Group transmissions.
