Experience the future together with us - Powertrain Meets Future

Exciting, impressive and networking it was on May 17, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and at our Evening reception at 6:00 p.m.

The automotive future lies directly ahead, but where will the journey take us? At the Drivetrain Forum 2018 you could join leading experts to catch a glimpse of the future, and discuss the automotive industry’s latest developments in transmissions and drivetrain solutions.

At the one-day symposium, leaders in research, development, and production will gave exciting insights into the “machine room” of an industry in transition. You were able to explore fascinating drivetrain technology throughout the extensive exhibition – and to experience the full range of dynamics live, during our test drives.

You took advantage of this opportunity to participate directly in the future of the automotive sector, and make valuable contacts in the industry. We hope you had a day full of inspiring conversations with experts and decision-makers who are shaping the mobility of tomorrow.

Swamy Kotagiri

Staying ahead of a rapidly changing industry doesn’t just require an understanding of where it’s going. It takes an understanding of where it’s been. And with six decades of proven success and expertise across the entire vehicle, Magna can identify the most significant emerging trends and then act on them. We create technologies that solve big problems for our customers and the world around us. With brilliant and disruptive thinking everywhere, the question isn’t about when all vehicles will be fully electric. The question is about who is ready for these transformative shifts. At Magna, our ever-expanding portfolio of powertrain products prepares us to match the market’s progression from internal combustion engines to plug-in hybrids to battery electric vehicles.

We cultivate innovation – in our company, in our industry, and beyond. We turn disruptive thinking into disruptive technology. Then we bring it to market.
