Thanks to its know-how and a comprehensive portfolio, the HARTING Technology Group is an expert partner to all national automotive manufacturers and is well-positioned to help the transportation transition achieve a technological and infrastructure breakthrough. At the 89th Geneva International Motor Show (March 7-17, 2019), the family-owned company will now be presenting its innovative fast-charging technology on the Rinspeed “microSnap” vehicle.
As a pioneer for reliable, clean and environmentally friendly e-mobility, subsidiary HARTING Automotive offers tailor-made solutions and components for all relevant markets and develops and produces charging equipment for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. In addition to the number of electrical charging points and a nationwide charging infrastructure, the acceptance and success of electric vehicles will crucially depend on easy to handle, cost-saving and time-saving charging technology.
The technology group can point on decades of experience in connection and transmission technology for data, signals and power, and early recognised the increasing environmental awareness within society with respect to vehicle traffic and the resulting demands and opportunities. “Air pollution control requirements will only be met with e-mobility, especially in cities. Consequently, we’ve focused on this in our R&D and production and are also involved in all aspects of standardisation,” emphasises Marco Grinblats, Managing Director of subsidiary HARTING Automotive.
HARTING manufactures power cables for e-mobility and actuators for automotive applications at its Romanian sites in Sibiu and Agnita. Due to the strong increase in demand, the production capacity at both plants was increased significantly last year.
The technology group has been a direct supplier to VW for a specific e-mobility solution since the end of 2016. Various charging equipment is produced for several models of the VW Group, e. g. the Porsche Panamera 4-Hybrid. HARTING Automotive is also a Tier 1 supplier to the BMW Group.
Development work continues. HARTING is working very intensively on High Power Current solutions. “This technology will shape e-mobility in the medium term,” Managing Director Grinblats is convinced.
