Thermo King launches all-electric refrigeration unit

Feb. 26, 2021
Combined with electric vehicles, the E-200 creates refrigerated transportation that delivers food and perishable items safely with zero-emission and low noise.

Thermo King is offering a fully electric refrigeration unit for small to medium-sized vans and trucks. With a unique mix of control, convenience, utilization, and reliability, the E-200 is designed to serve as an all-electric solution for electric and engine-powered trucks.

The E-200 provides a unique mix of control and convenience, paired with low noise and reduced weight, and offers an attractive solution across urban settings and final mile deliveries.

Unlike typical direct drive solutions designed for diesel engines, the E-200 represents the future in transport refrigeration by delivering constant capacity independent from the vehicle’s engine and can work with both electric and engine-powered vehicles.

The E-200’s plug-and-play solution requires no road compressor or drive kit to function. It features a power management system, which contributes to lower energy consumption, increased vehicle autonomy, and higher efficiency and reliability.

The E-200 features a host of innovations that are helping transform transport refrigeration, including:

  • A tailor-made inverter for constant capacity and operating efficiency independent of the vehicle engine.
  • A variable speed compressor for temperature control, decreased energy consumption, and enhanced reliability.
  • A smart controller with power management intelligence to optimize the supply and demand of power.

Combined with electric vehicles, the E-200 creates refrigerated transportation that delivers food and perishable items safely with zero-emission and low noise for urban populations.

“The E-200 represents the next generation of all-electric refrigeration units. It provides our customers with refrigeration that moves beyond direct drive systems and helps them meet their sustainability targets throughout the cold chain,” said Tracey Patterson, truck product manager for Thermo King. “As an industry leader, Thermo King is committed to adapting technologies with zero-emission and are compliant with growing regional and national regulations.”
