LG Electronics will combine it's motor and inverter technologies expertise with Magna International’s powertrain engineering capability to acquire a competitive lead in this business space. The capital for establishing this new venture is likely to be around USD 26.7 million and will be headquartered at Incheon, South Korea.

Moreover, this joint venture will manufacture and sell electric vehicle power trains which can generate 250 kilowatts of power. Some experts have also claimed that the joint venture will surpass USD 178.2 million in terms of annual sales.

According to LG Electronics, the electric vehicle parts market size had reached a valuation of USD 9.23 billion in the year 2020 and is likely to expand at a 35% annual growth rate through 2025.

The Seoul-based multinational conglomerate expects collaboration with Magna International can potentially allow it to capture a prominent share in this market space, cited sources close to the company.
