Production programme of Magna Exteriors (Bohemia), a member of Magna International group, includes bumpers, dashboards, fifth door for passenger cars and truck masks.

Nowadays, many companies could benefit from rapidly developing car industry in terms of electric vehicles. The number of charging stations for electric vehicles in the Czech Republic is increasing and just recently, the Czech Republic and Slovakia agreed on preparing a cross – border project on the D2 motorway between Bratislava and Brno, which could provide smart motorway testing in traffic for autonomous vehicles.
