Thermo King is now offering a new, fully electric refrigeration unit for small to medium-sized vans and trucks.

Unlike typical direct drive solutions designed for diesel engines, Thermo King notes that the E-200 represents the future in transport refrigeration by delivering constant capacity independent from the vehicles 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, according to the manufacturer.

E-200 features include:

  • A tailor-made inverter for constant capacity and operating efficiency independent of the vehicle engine.
  • A variable speed compressor for precise 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, low noise, and maximum convenience 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.
