Jul. 19, 2017 - Ontario-based auto parts maker Magna International has announced it will build the Jaguar E-Pace compact SUV at its contract vehicle manufacturing facility in Graz, Austria.

Production is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2017.

It is the second model Magna will contract manufacture for Jaguar, joining the Jaguar I-Pace.

“We are proud to expand our partnership with Jaguar Land Rover and contribute to their new E-Pace compact SUV,” said Günther Apfalter, president of Magna Europe and Magna Steyr. “This second collaboration in just a short time emphasizes the agility and flexibility we provide automakers with our contract manufacturing capability.”

Along with the Jaguar E-Pace, Magna will be manufacturing four other models by the first quarter of 2018: Jaguar I-Pace, BMW 5 Series, BMW 530e plug-in hybrid, and Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

As a contract manufacturer, Magna says it has produced more than 3 million vehicles across 23 different models.
