Updates about the Symposium & Expo
Electrification not only increases the variety of drive solutions, it also requires more complex electronic control systems. Developers are more and more confronted with topics like functional safety, diagnostics, advanced driver assistant systems or autonomous driving.
The automotive industry is developing fast – and so are our CTI Symposia. What began nearly 20 years ago as a specialist get-together for the transmission industry has now grown to become a leading Drivetrain Engineering congress and exhibition platform.
Our symposia on Intelligent, Electrified Automotive Drivetrains are specifically dedicated to the challenges and solutions of new energy vehicles.
- even more forward-looking technology
- even more important topics
- even more knowledge-sharing opportunities

TU Munich scientists created the electric car “aCar” specifically for application in rural areas in Africa. Five years ago, scientists at the TU Munich began building a car that is supposed to improve mobility in developing countries within the course of a research project, thus opening a new possibility of … Continue reading “aCar : TU Munich develops electric car for Africa”
The Magsplit transmission device splits propulsion power magnetically. In operation, it offers greater efficiency with superior NVH compared to the alternatives. As a power split, the launch quality is smooth and tunably progressive, whether driving purely electrically or with the combustion engine. As electrification proliferates, hybrids must continue to offer … Continue reading “The MAGSPLIT® Hybrid Transmission”
Lubricants have always been the “lifeblood” of automotive vehicles, reducing energy losses in the battle against friction, preventing wear, and ensuring durability and longer vehicle lifetimes. For modern drivetrains, purposefully formulated lubricants are a vital design element. They enable high levels of fuel economy and powertrain efficiency in response to … Continue reading “The Importance of Rheology and Viscosity Index Improver (VII) Selection in Passenger Car Efficiency”
Electrification opens up many new opportunities, but also causes a complex interaction between the combustion engine and electric motors in hybrid vehicles. This is why new concepts and components for powertrains are in high demand. It is not enough to simply mix and match existing options. Magna Powertrain is meeting … Continue reading “A Comprehensive System Approach for Future Powertrain Electrification”
