Chereau signs deal with Sono Motors to offer solar powered refrigerated vehicles
Chereau has partnered with manufacturer Sono Motors to build solar powered refrigerated vehicles. It said the solution provides the vehicle's refrigeration unit with an additional 9.8kW, saving up to 8,475 litres of fuel and reducing CO2 emissions by more than 22-tonnes a year for diesel-powered cooling units. Sono will equip the roof and sides of an existing Chereau semi-trailer with 54 solar modules, which will run the reefer unit by recharging the main battery.
