Nissan all-electric ice cream van
Is a ‘zero emission at point of use’ ice cream van feasible for parks & towns?
Ice cream vans are predominantly used in either urban or recreational areas, almost exclusively powered by a diesel engine idling throughout the day. Environmental, social and legislative pressure is quickly mounting, and there are still currently no ‘zero emissions at use’ solutions available. With over 2500 licenced ice cream vans on the UK roads, a very real commercial opportunity exists for anyone with a viable solution.
Ice cream vans have key features of:
- Freezers, to hold pre-made goods such as ice lollies and pre-packaged ice creams
- Soft ice cream machines (‘Mr Whippy’ machines), producing high margin product
- Sinks for washing utensils and operator hygiene
Having undertaken a whole vehicle analysis of usage profile and power consumption, Performance Projects has developed a viable solution which enables full operation without compromise, making the fully mobile ‘zero emission at point of use’ ice cream van a commercial reality.
