AURORA, Ontario, Aug. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The 2022 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) is returning with its first-ever indoor-outdoor fall show and Magna will be there in full force demonstrating its commitment to the future of mobility. Also known as the Detroit Auto Show, NAIAS will be held at Huntington Place Convention Center in Detroit, Mich., between September 14-25, 2022.
The ‘Power of Magna’ is the company’s expertise in delivering solutions across many areas of the vehicle, setting it apart from its competitors. With proven technologies spanning electrification, ADAS and new mobility, the company’s capabilities and expertise in vehicle systems make Magna the ideal partner to develop mobility technology for today and into the future.
“As our industry evolves rapidly, Magna is at the forefront of innovations that power the mobility experiences of the future,” said Eric Wilds, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer. “NAIAS is one of the most influential auto shows in the world, making it a great opportunity to showcase Magna’s broad expertise and ability to solve the key mobility challenges.”
Magna’s presence at NAIAS will include an outdoor welcome center, an interactive booth in Hall C showcasing a range of mobility solutions and sponsorship of the Automobili-D University area.
One of the highlights of Magna’s booth will be the first public display of the company’s EtelligentForce technology. The advanced battery-electric vehicle (BEV) powertrain system is a no-compromises solution for electrifying pickup trucks and light commercial vehicles, without sacrificing payload, towing and other capabilities truck owners expect.
