LANNACH, Austria, October 7 -- MAGNA Drivetrain announces the successful start of serial production of the Integrated Transfer Case (ITC) for the new Land Rover Discovery III (L319). The manufacturing and assembly of the transfer cases will take place in MAGNA Drivetrain's facilities in Lannach and Ilz (Austria).
