Reliability comes first

Double-down on sustainability by eliminating TRU carbon emissions and minimizing food waste in the cold chain. e1000 matches the performance of equivalent capacity diesel reefers. It supports truck box sizes from 16 – 28 ft., with fresh and frozen setpoints, similar to Thermo King T-1090 units. With telematics hardware that comes standard, you can maintain tight quality control by monitoring TRU temperature from anywhere.

Compelling Total Cost of Ownership

  • May qualify for Clean Off-Road Equipment (CORE) funding. (Potentially covering up to 40% of unit purchase price.)

Electrify with Confidence

Meet compliance timelines

Electrification timelines for transport refrigeration units (TRUs) have been defined in California and 14 other states, with initial compliance dates starting this year. Thermo King’s e1000 meets California Area Resources Board (CARB) regulations for zero emissions and rules for refrigerants. With availability in 2023, Thermo King is ready to help you start your transition to electric TRUs today.

Take advantage of rebates and incentives

Nationally and at the state level, investments are being made to help businesses offset the cost of purchasing zero-emissions equipment. For example, in California, the Clean Off-Road Equipment Voucher Incentive Project (CORE) can help offset the e1000 purchase price by up to 40%. (e1000 is the only qualifying TRU for class 5 – 7 trucks.)

Choose a partner for the journey

We have committed to invest more than $100 million to deliver fully-electric products into every segment of the cold chain in the Americas by 2025.
