Electric Car Sets New World Record with Vincotech's Help
2016-July - Vincotech was on board when the students of ETH Zurich's AMZ racing team set out to break the world record for an electric vehicle's ability to accelerate. With the benefit of Vincotech's power modules and technical support, the “Grimsel” racer put in the fastest 0-to-100 km/h acceleration time ever recorded for an electric vehicle.
Guinness acknowledges the new record
Flying across the tarmac of the Dübendorf military airfield, the car of the Formula student team of the Academic Motorsports Association Zurich hit the 100-km mark before it had covered 30 meters. The e-racer took just 1.513 seconds to reach that speed, shaving a couple of tenths off the time of the previous record of 1.779 seconds held by a University of Stuttgart car.
Vincotech is proud to support these enthusiastic students and their project, and we're delighted with their record-setting achievement, which is now in the Guinness Book of World Records. To learn more, visit http://bit.ly/29oTUoZ.
Vincotech is proud to announce to have renewed the Silver sponsorship with TUfast in Munich, who even reached a world record with their self-developed electric race car eb019 this year and moved to the first place in the world ranking list!
Academic Motorsports Club Zurichhas been developingelectric racing cars since 2010, taking home many trophies in Formula Student races. The team led the 2018 Formula Student world ranking list. We support the team with power modules and technical advice and look forward to collaborating in 2019.
Vincotech donates to the humanitarian organization Plan International Deutschland e.V. again instead of providing Christmas gifts to their customers. The donation will be used for the project “Safer Cities for Girls”, the same worthy cause we have been supporting during the year.
Vincotech staged a charity Sudoku challenge at the PCIM Europe show in support of Plan International Deutschland e.V. The determined efforts of Vincotech's engaged partners and the booth's staff to solve puzzle upon puzzle are now helping to make cities safer for girls in India.
As an engineering-driven tech company, we feel a kinship with young engineers. It's our pleasure to afford them opportunities to apply what they learned and gain experience juggling the complexities of real-world projects.
Supporting Plan International Deutschland e.V., Vincotech’s committed partners and its employees both tried to make as many ascents to the top of the 3-meter high boulder wall installed at the PCIM fair booth.
A charity fun-run organized by Vincotech as part of the PCIM Europe show in May 2014 raised a rather impressive sum of €12,000. All proceeds went to the children's development organisation Plan International Deutschland e.V. to support the 'Water for Ethiopia' initiative.
Vincotech remains a staunch backer of the children's charity Plan International. Late last year, the company found a good way to get into the seasonal spirit of giving. Opting to forego the usual Christmas gifts, Vincotech instead donated the handsome sum of €10,000 to Plan International.
Vincotech had the opportunity to redeem a voucher worth €2,083 presented during this year's summer festivity at the Förderzentrum Förderschwerpunkt geistige Entwicklung and extend the school's fleet with three new children’s vehicles.
During PCIM Europe 2014, May 20-22, Vincotech set up a treadmill equipped with one of our modules at fair booth. The Vincotech team committed to a charity fun-run on that machine donating for each kilometer logged € 50 to Plan International Deutschland e.V.
In spring 2013, Vincotech again conducted its annual survey asking customers for their opinions on our products and services. As a small incentive and token of gratitude for our customers’ participation, we made a donation of 30€ to Plan International Deutschland e.V. for every survey we received.
Several small towns in western Hungary were contaminated with toxic red sludge when a severe industrial chemical accident occurred in October 2010. Vincotech worked out a plan to help the people affected by the catastrophe, providing direct, effective support on site.
