A CLEANER FUTURE
Electric cars, electric vans – there is no denying that over the last year there has been a huge change in the vehicles we buy, changing from petrol and diesel which we have relied on for so long to a much cleaner, quieter and actually better way of powering your vehicle.
At CoolVan we realised this change was coming and started to prepare ourselves over 5 years ago. Initially we purchased some electric cars for our own fleet, so we could grasp what it was like
to drive and operate an electric car and van so that when we are asked questions by our customers we would be well equipped to answer.
We then started to look at what changes we needed to implement on our existing refrigerated van conversions to make sure the fridge systems achieved the temperatures required whilst using the least energy. We quickly concluded that the key aim would be to maintain as much of the base vehicle range as possible. This would also minimise co2 usage.
THE BENEFITS OF OWNING AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE...
NO DPF FILTER
Whilst we researched this we also questioned what we could do to make the overall conversion process less impactful to the environment, this has led us to reduce our waste and energy usage and we also came across a product that not only had superb insulation qualities but was also made from recycled plastic bottles. A single fridge van conversion could take up to 5000 of plastic bottles out of landfill and help to keep people’s groceries nice and cool at the same time. Plus, the majority of the insulation can then be recycled again and maybe even be used to insulate a temperature controlled vehicle built by CoolVan again in the future. This patented conversion technology is also lighter and more durable than other insulation systems. It is also substantially more thermally efficient, achieving an industry leading ATP K-Value 0.29 in recent tests.

Over this time, we have become experts in the conversion of refrigerated and temperature controlled electric vans. The technology is changing rapidly as is the mindset of our customers, who have lots of questions about this new eco-friendly product offering.
The research we have done in last few years will help us to answer these questions and help our customers purchase the best electric fridge van for their business with the best insulation and fridge systems to keep their products cool.
