Magna to Produce Chevy Silverado EV Battery EnclosuresFebruary 14, 2023
Magna International has announced plans to expand its partnership with General Motors to supply battery enclosures for the new 2024 Chevy Silverado electric vehicle (EV), set to begin production later this year. The firm recently completed a $500 million, 740,000-sq.-ft. expansion at its St. Clair, MI, facility, where it produces EV battery enclosures for the GMC Hummer EV.
Per the Magna website, “at our St. Clair plant we’re making two versions of the steel battery enclosure for the Hummer EV, designed to fit the short- and long-wheelbase versions of the truck. Both are packed with parts, including stampings, rollformed components and fasteners. The integration and assembly of all of these components into such a large assembly, held to millimeter-level, tolerances is a challenge that we have overcome.”
