One of the biggest headaches when it comes to transporting vaccines is the required storage temperature of between 2 to 8 degrees Celsius. Toyota answers the issue with this custom-made Refrigerated Vehicle that even the World Health Organisation (WHO) has given a thumbs up.

The Refrigerated Vehicle is a product of a collaboration between Toyota Tsusho Corporation, Toyota Motor Corporation, and B Medical Systems S.a.r.l.

Toyota Tsusho provided the knowledge on how to optimise the use of the truck while Toyota provided the platform of a Toyota Land Cruiser 78. Meanwhile, B Medical Systems provided the specialised CF850 vaccine refrigerator.

The refrigerator has a storage capacity of 396 litres, or more specifically, 400 vaccine packages at one go. On its own, the fridge could operate for 16 hours without a power supply.

It was also specifically designed to have the ability to be charged via an external power source when parked and by the vehicle while driving.

The Refrigerated Vehicle is the first vehicle in the world to have received a Performance, Quality, and Safety (PQS) qualification for quality of medical devices and equipment as set by the WHO.

Toyota has hopes that the vehicle will not only be used worldwide to transport the Covid-19 vaccine but also to make transporting general mandatory vaccines for infants in developing countries easier.

There isn’t a time in memory that doesn’t involve staring at cars. After discovering the excitement of watching Schumacher vs Hakkinen, Formula 1 became a major part of life. The love for cars and F1 ultimately led to a job with CAR Magazine. The untimely death of the magazine meant a hiatus from cars at lifestyle women’s magazine Marie Claire before another opportunity came knocking again.
