Thermo King’s new e-1000 electric trailer unit is here and ready to revolutionize mobile transportation, with electrification bringing us upon a new age in refrigerated transport. With gas prices surging, switching to a fully electric delivery vehicle can reduce costs in the long run, while giving out zero emissions. Revealed during Work Truck Week, the e-1000 is designed to maximize thermal efficiency, with high quality materials provided by industry leading companies. 

Benefitting from a Mobile Refrigeration Unit

When maintaining FDA standards, putting your trust in a third party delivery company can be a risk. Especially when you’re dealing with products that require a temperature specific climate such as pharmaceuticals, produce, and art. The e-1000 allows you to have full control of your delivery process, from start to finish. Transporting small to large hauls has never been less cost effective. With better fuel efficiency, ease of use, and no recurring rental fees; owning a fully electric refrigerated vehicle has its upsides. Mounted on a Lyon Electric Lion chassis, with components from Morgan Truck Body make for a versatile and powerful delivery vehicle. Accommodating to any personalized customizations you may need, with Thermo King’s e-1000 you can guarantee your customers health and satisfaction.
