Thermo King launches all-electric TRU

March 1, 2021
The new E-200 refrigeration unit has been designed for operation with medium-sized electric and engine-powered vehicles.

Thermo King now is offering a new, 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 the ideal all-electric solution for electric and engine-powered vehicles, the company said. Paired with low noise and reduced weight, it 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 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.

E-200 features innovations that are helping transform transport refrigeration, including:

  • A tailor-made inverter for constant capacity and exceptional 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,” said Tracey Patterson, truck product manager for Thermo King. “It provides our customers with refrigeration that moves beyond direct drive systems and helps them meet their sustainability targets throughout the cold chain.

“As an industry leader, Thermo King is committed to adapting technologies with zero-emission and are compliant with growing regional and national regulations.”
