The annual SEMA Show in Las Vegas results in rides made to capture the casino-glazed gaze of a hundred thousand over-stimulated conventioneers, peppering them with a healthy overdose of glitz, glitter and glamour – the latter slathered on everything from blackjack tables to areas of the bodysoft ice cream truck game. Ha, obtain it?
SEMA feature vehicles scream for your attention even more desperately than a bathroom selfie girl, and a car that is greater than a car is always a good thing (much like a properly-attired bathroom selfie). Mutating SEMA cars morph into Zen gardens, zombie hunters plus more. While you cant ever have enough zombie defense measure preparation, not all build needs stanced wheels, sticker-bombed bike racks and zipfrom where the magic happens – that sweet, creamy magic. We’re still talking about frozen treats, right?
Kia gets this, which is why it hooked up with Smitten Frozen Treats to create this 2015 Frozen Goodies Soul EV (aka The Slinger) for your SEMA Show. The 2015 Soul EV is straight outta the near future, with a synchronous AC motor rated at 109 hp and three different ways for you to getBrewing and Spirits to produce a second build – a 2015 Sedona beer wagon (soccer moms rejoice! ) It doesn’t get much better than an ice cream truck, unless you add another one that serves beer (which truly makes everything better). We’re talking about ice cream AND beer together – there is a god. Kia’s collabs with these two disruptive companies celebrates the fine art of crafting and creating something as opposed to the more usual manufacturing and assemblyYou’ll need a slide out countertop if you truly want to sling ice cream in style.
Much like the way Ballast Point got its start, Smitten founder Robyn Sue Fisher wasn’t satisfied with the way mainstream ice cream was made with preservatives along with other more nefarious sounding unpronounceable ingredients. She hooked up using a nerd herd of engineers to create the Brrr system, which uses liquid nitrogen to make the creamiest ice cream, made-to-order, from scratch in minutes. Robyn took her Brrr to the streets of San Francisco within a Radio Flyer wagon along with theclass and seats-leading cargo space. The Slinger carries a Smitten frozen goodies parlor. Your move, conventional wisdom.
Gallagher Designs in Portland, Oregon was given the job of creating the Smitten Slinger. Gallagher specializes in small, and large scale installations for such notable clients as Nike and vehicle builds that include menacing big fire and rigs trucks with basketball hoops projecting from allIce Cream started from the back of a Radio Flyer Wagon. This custom deal promises a lot less speed wobble on the highway.
The lead designer on the Soft Ice Cream Soul, Gallagher’s Matt Geiger, wanted to incorporate Smitten’s initial identity of Robyn and her little red wagon into the build. The Frozen Treats Slinger is more than an ice cream truck. It’s a rolling frozen treats parlor that can cause each scoop from scratch. While the Soul EV is much smaller than Gallagher’s prior builds, Matt describes it no less ambitious. I wouldIt would shoot out like the arm sword of a mecha anime creature if this were as much as us. Good thing it isn’t up to us.
Gallagher proposed that the Soul tow a trailer, in a nod to Robyn’s original little red wagon. The crew at McKenna Metal fabricated a custom trailer, a necessity because of the unique demands of the build. Those classic teardrop trailers that are going for a hipster renaissance as of late inspire the look. The Soul EV also lends itself to the classic theme. While the EV technology will be allWe will have used real waffle cones for purposes of authenticity… and laziness.
The Ice Cream Slinger will be swathed in Smitten Red with white accents and a Rockford Fosgate sound system will announce the wagon’s arrival via custom roof-mounted waffle cone speaker enclosures. Once parked, the Slinger coverts into a real frozen goodies machine with countertops bridging the gap involving the Soul EV and the custom trailer. The Brrr System and liquid nitrogen tanks are housed in the rear of the Soul EV and the back of the trailer posesses a fixins bar (because good ice cream is certainly not without the fixins).
