GRAZ — The Mercedes G-Class SUVs have been built by Magna since 1979. The off-road vehicle entered its 44th year of production in Graz, Austria and has now produced 500,000 vehicles.

“A half a million of this iconic vehicle is a significant milestone which underscores Magna’s competencies as a highly flexible and experienced contract manufacturing partner. Our partnership with Mercedes-Benz has been one built on trust and collaboration which is reflected in the longevity of the program in our Graz facility,” said Roland Prettner, Interim President of Magna Steyr.

Magna’s carbon neutral facility can accommodate vehicles with conventional, hybrid and electric powertrains. Over the years, 31 different models have rolled off the production lines in various quantities, making a total of over four million vehicles.
