CES Las Vegas 2018: Rinspeed’s “Snap” car banks on HARTING’s Fast Charging technology

Swiss automobile manufacturer Rinspeed is presenting its new concept vehicle "Snap" at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this January 9-12, 2018 in Las Vegas – with Rinspeed AG once again relying on innovative HARTING technology. This time, the family-owned company is providing rapid-charge technology to quickly charge the "Snap" with electricity in an environmentally-friendly manner.

The globally active HARTING Technology Group has long been at home in the automotive supplier industry market. Fast Charging technology – premiered at the Geneva Motor Show 2016 – is a convincing example of its growing portfolio of products and components.

"Besides conventional charging technology, almost all new e-car concepts from the big OEMs rely on high-performance fast charging. This will boost driver acceptance. This is the breakthrough," says HARTING Automotive Managing Director Marco Grinblats with confidence. Grinblats sees the potential of an end-to-end network of conventional and fast charging stations which extends beyond just Germany.


The company has long been an expert, reliable partner to virtually all national automobile manufacturers and major OEMs in other European countries. At the end of 2016, HARTING became a direct supplier to the VW Group for a specific e-mobility solution. HARTING supplies various types of charging equipment for different Group brands, among others for the Porsche Panamera 4-Hybrid. HARTING is also a Tier 1 supplier for BMW Group.

The new project is already the third successful collaboration between the Rinspeed think tank and HARTING. Last year, HARTING’s miniMICA acted as a scalable and flexible architecture in the "Oasis" concept vehicle. In 2016, the HARTING MICA was installed in Rinspeed’s "Etos" vehicle for independent emission and condition monitoring and garnered the "HERMES AWARD" that year.

The "Snap" will be on display for all to marvel at on 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).
