Thermo King, Chanje Partner For Last-Mile Refrigerated Deliveries

Thermo King has partnered with Los Angeles-based Chanje Energy Inc., to create a refrigerated version of its Chanje’s V8100 all-electric last-mile delivery van. The V8100 is a 6000 lbs. payload van with 675 cu. ft. of storage space.

The van uses a Thermo King V-520 RT refrigeration unit and ThermoLite solar panels. The vehicle reportedly has a range of 120 miles and cooling capacity, depending on ambient conditions, to -10 F. The V8100 has a 13.2 kW Level 2 charger and uses to solar panels for accessory charging.

Thermo King said it is also partnering with several chassis manufacturers (OEMs), such as Chanje, to demonstrate all-electric solutions in a variety of capacities and gather 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.”
