Thermo King has partnered with Chanje, a company that creates sustainable solutions to improve the last-mile industry, to create a fully integrated refrigerated version of its V8100 all-electric last-mile delivery van. The van is equipped with a Thermo King V-520 RT refrigeration unit and ThermoLite solar panels.

Thermo King was the first company to offer European customers a hybrid and non-diesel truck and trailer refrigeration unit solution. Currently, there are more than 20,000 trucks and trailers on the road with these all-electric technologies.

This movement is expanding into other regions. In North America, Thermo King is partnering with several leading chassis Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), such as Chanje, to demonstrate all-electric solutions in a variety of capacities and gather important input from the field to optimize future product offerings.

“The global refrigerated vehicle market is expected to reach $16.5 billion by 2022. In the U.S., we are seeing increasing demand for medium-duty, last-mile refrigerated solutions due to a steady increase in consumers doing their shopping online and expecting fast home deliveries,” says Ian Televik, Director of Marketing, Chanje. “This was a key reason we partnered with Thermo King to create a vehicle to meet this ever-growing demand.”

In total, Thermo King offers more than 25 electric products in its global portfolio.
