Swiss manufacturer Rinspeed AG is presenting its new concept vehicle, the electrically powered “Snap”, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week that relies on innovative HARTING environmentally friendly technology for rapid charging. The “Snap” also will be on display at the Rinspeed stand at the Geneva Motor Show (March 8-18, 2018) and at the HARTING stand at the HANNOVER MESSE (April 23-27, 2018).

The HARTING Technology Group’s Fast Charging technology – unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show two years ago,– is part of the family owned company’s growing portfolio of products and components for that sector.  “Almost all new e-car concepts from the big OEMs now offer high-performance fast charging,” says Marco Grinblats, HARTING Automotive Managing Director. “This boosts driver acceptance – it’s a breakthrough.”

HARTING has long been an expert, reliable partner to virtually all national automobile manufacturers and major OEMs in Europe. HARTING is supplying the VW Group with a specific e-mobility solution and various types of charging equipment for different Group brands, including the Porsche Panamera 4-Hybrid. HARTING also is a Tier 1 supplier for the BMW Group.

The Snap project is the third successful collaboration between Rinspeed and HARTING. Last year, HARTING’s miniMICA acted as a scalable and flexible electronic architecture in the “Oasis” concept vehicle. In 2016, the MICA was installed in Rinspeed’s “Etos” vehicle for independent emission and condition monitoring. MICA earned HARTING the prestigious “HERMES AWARD” for innovation that year.
