AURORA — Magna says it has initiated production of its mild hybrid transmission for BMW Group.

The company’s latest 7-speed, mild hybrid dual-clutch transmission will be featured only through BMW Group’s compact class.

Magna says that the mild hybrid transmission technology can help reduce the CO2 emissions of an internal combustion engine.

The contract between Magna and BMW Group also includes production of mild hybrid transmissions for additional models which Magna anticipates will promote the reduction of CO2 emissions across multiple platforms, starting with the new BMW 2 Active Tourer.
