Magna to engineer and build INEOS Automotive’s off-road electric vehicle

AURORA — Magna is adding a new customer in engineering and complete vehicle manufacturing with the announcement that it has been awarded a contract to manufacture the INEOS Automotive electric off-road vehicle contract – which is expected to start production in Graz, Austria in 2026. In addition to manufacturing, Magna will also be responsible for the engineering of the complete vehicle.

“We are excited to have been chosen as INEOS Automotive’s strategic manufacturing partner, building on the strength of our existing relationship in vehicle engineering,” said Roland Prettner, Interim President, Magna Complete Vehicles. “This new electric vehicle adds nicely to our line-up in Austria and showcases our flexibility in producing a range of vehicles from ICE-based to fully electric.”

Magna started working with INEOS Automotive in 2018 on complete vehicle engineering services ahead of the launch of the company’s first 4X4, the Grenadier.

“Having worked together on the engineering of our crucial first product, we’ve seen first-hand the value of applying Magna’s agility, expertise and experience to a complete vehicle development program,” said Lynn Calder, CEO of INEOS Automotive.

“As a leading global contract manufacturer with a strong infrastructure and a highly qualified workforce, Magna is ideally positioned to support automakers like INEOS Automotive in turning their mobility vision into reality,” added Prettner.
