What: Composite space frame
Innovation: Magna developed a new approach to high-volume production of lighter-weight tailgates and liftgates using a composite space frame reinforcement. The structure meets automaker performance standards while delivering a 10 percent mass reduction from steel reinforcements. The innovation also gives auto designers greater flexibility for new styling features with more complicated and bolder shapes.
