Magna Stresses on Liftgate Modules

September 17 2018

Magna International Inc. has been emphasizing on growth of its lightweight thermoplastic liftgate modules. Rising demand for crossovers and sport utility vehicles, along with changing global emission standards, has forced many automakers to opt for such type of liftgates. Since the beginning of 2018, the company launched two thermoplastic liftgates on 2019 Jeep Cherokee and 2019 Acura RDX. Further, it plans to introduce two more in China in the second half of the year.

Magna’s recyclable liftgate modules offer up to 25% weight reduction and wider design flexibility compared with the steel versions. Its design flexibility enables clients to carry out regular and cost-effective mid-cycle refreshes. Additionally, these liftgate modules trim CO2 emissions, expand electric vehicle battery range and develop aerodynamics.
