Magna's 48 Volt hybrid transmission goes into production with Stellantis
Magna's 48-Volt hybrid dual-clutch transmission debuts on the Jeep Renegade and Compass e-Hybrid, Fiat 500 X and Tipo; production underway at Magna’s Slovakia facility

30 Oct 2022

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.

An Industry-Leading Decarbonization Strategy
The global race to cut emissions to zero is a vital step to tackle climate change, and Stellantis intends to be a front-runner. A huge undertaking possible only by reconsidering how we produce, consume, and move around. Transport has traditionally been heavily reliant on fossil fuels, which accounted for more than 90% of the sector’s energy needs in 2020(1). In the same year, it was the third main source of total carbon dioxide emissions, emitting over 7 Gigatonnes of CO2(2). As stated in the 2015 Paris Agreement, temperature increase needs to be limited to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels to prevent the worst impacts of climate change and preserve our planet.

As the automotive industry accelerates change to avert climate and ecological threats, Stellantis’ Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan implements a pathway consistent with science-based recommendations to achieve this critical target. Through aggressive and clear targets, it sets out deep emission cuts to slash CO2 in half by 2030, benchmarking our 2021 metrics, and achieve carbon net zero by 2038 with single digit percentage compensation of the remaining emissions(3).

(1) and (2) International Energy Agency
(3) The achievement is conditioned by key external enablers: decarbonized energy (based on Announced Pledges Scenario from International Energy Agency), and conducive public policies for BEV (charging infrastructure, purchasing incentives)

A Holistic Approach to Climate Change
Stellantis' strategy to achieve Carbon Net Zero by 2038 is focused on three main areas:
  • Aggresive electrification roadmap
  • Cutting-edge technologies
  • Integrated battery ecosystem
  • Innovative mobility solutions
  • Circular economy business
Supply Chain:
  • Optimized logistics
  • Strong supplier involvement
Industrial and Sites:
  • Responsible energy management
  • Pioneering real estate management
Table of Carbon Net Zero by 2038

“We took 2021 as a reference, which makes the trajectory of our ethical commitment very bold compared to peers. Taking a leadership role in decarbonization is the best path to protect our Company, our employees, and generations to come.”
Carlos Tavares, Stellantis CEO

A Threefold Strategy to Reduce Our Carbon Footprint
Our push to net zero addresses all sources of greenhouse gas emissions, from Vehicles to Supply Chain, and Industrial and Sites. We identified nine critical activities to reduce our carbon footprint across Scopes 1, 2 and 3, implementing different practices and technologies that limit compensation to the bare minimum.
As the world is entering a hopeful new era for climate action, Stellantis is leading the industry’s transition toward a carbon net zero future and expects all stakeholders to be aligned, starting with the clean energy supply.
Note: Scope 1: GHG emissions that occur from sources owned or controlled by the Company; Scope 2: GHG emissions released from the generation of purchased energy consumed by the Company; Scope 3: GHG emissions that occur from sources not owned or controlled by the Company

Stellantis starts European dealer network shake-up
As part of its efforts to cut costs and support investment for electrification, Stellantis will move toward an agency sales model.

Peugeot dealer

Peugeot is among Stellantis brands whose dealerships will switch to an agrency sales model.

Stellantis said it would reorganize its European dealers' network in July next year, starting in Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
"The rest of Europe will progressively follow in the implementation of the new distribution scheme," Stellantis said on Thursday.
As part of its efforts to cut costs and support investment for electrification, Stellantis last year said it would end all current sales and services contracts with European dealers for all of its 14 brands, from June 2023.
The plan is to move toward an "agency model" in which carmakers take more control of sales transactions and prices while dealers focus on deliveries and servicing, no longer acting as the customer's contractual partner.
Uwe Hochgeschurtz, Stellantis' chief operating officer for Europe, said the group aimed to promote a "sustainable" distribution model and all stakeholders would benefit.
Stellantis said it ran a comparative economic simulation showing that, under the new planned distribution model, dealers would enjoy "at least equivalent profitability" and reduced exposure to risks.
A spokesman for the company said Stellantis' light commercial vehicle brands would enter the new distribution structure from Jan. 1, 2024.
