Europe: A project for a 100% electric, refrigerated truck
The City Move, or 100% electric, refrigerated truck, is currently being tested.
Developed by a group of industrialists including Chéreau (the European leader in refrigerated vehicles), the City Move has been designed for urban transport. Able to carry up to 15 pallets, this truck is equipped with a 150kW lithium-ion battery for traction, which assures autonomy of 100km. Cold temperature is assured by another 11-20kW lithium-ion battery.
The cost of batteries, which represents EUR 300,000 (USD 391,838.32), remains an obstacle for this all electric vehicle.
