SLXi Hybrid

Thermo King, undisputed leader in diesel-powered trailer refrigeration, recently teamed up with Frigoblock, supreme expert in electric-powered solutions. The result is the industry’s first true hybrid trailer unit, offering all the benefits of both diesel and electric power.

Diesel and electric power each have their own advantages. By combining them as a hybrid, we can ensure that your operation is fully adaptable to current and future environmental requirements

Key challenges that face today’s refrigerated trailer fleet operators include:

  • Reducing their environmental footprint to comply with ever more stringent requirements from ordering parties
  • Ensuring the distribution of fresh products in densely populated urban areas where access is limited to low-noise, low-emissions vehicles
  • Retaining the flexibility needed to operate either distribution or long haul as required
  • Making these changes without impacting operating cost.

SLXi Hybrid provides the lowest total cost of ownership and the smallest environmental footprint for both distribution and long-haul applications.

Low emissions, low noise level

  • More and more cities are restricting or banning vehicles due to noise or diesel emissions.
  • SLXi Hybrid ensures current and future access to every delivery location.
  • Our hybrid solution means you can leverage the economy and low emissions of the most advanced tractor engines without compromising performance.
  • Emissions can be cut by over 90% while noise can be reduced to minimal PIEK levels for urban access and driver comfort.

Fuel efficiency and operational savings

  • A full return on investment can be obtained within a relatively short time period.
  • Operation in hybrid mode can deliver substantial fuel savings compared with diesel operation.
  • Savings of up to 5,000 litres of fuel per year and emissions reductions of 13,500kg of CO2 are achievable for each vehicle operating in hybrid mode.
  • Lower engine operating hours mean less frequent maintenance, further cost savings and extended equipment life.

Retrofittable so no need to wait for new equipment purchases

  • The SLXi Hybrid gives you the opportunity to optimise your existing fleet and minimise your environmental
  • Your Thermo King Dealer can advise on the best retrofit solution for your specific needs.
  • Your asset values can be maintained while securing short-term investments.
  • You retain total flexibility in choosing alternative fuels such as LNG, CNG and biofuel.
