Nissan E-nv300 Turned Into An Environmentally Friendly Ice Cream Van

Nissan e-NV300 turned into an environmentally friendly ice cream van

When it comes to reducing carbon emissions and other air pollutants, we typically focus on consumer vehicles, but they're far from the only vehicles that could use improvement. In particular, low-speed local vehicles such as buses and delivery vehicles could be excellent targets for electrification. Nissan chose a more fun example, though, in the form of an ice cream van based on the Nissan e-NV200, an electric commercial van available in Europe.

The van uses the same 40-kWh battery and powertrain from regular e-NV200 vans. But from there, it's been outfitted with a swing-open panel on the side to access shelving, freezer space and a soft-serve ice cream dispenser. The ice cream salesperson won't have to worry about eating into range while running this equipment, though. The van also features Nissan ROAM portable battery packs made from used Nissan Leaf batteries. We first saw this battery pack design coupled with a lightweight camper, and Nissan has announced it will put these packs into production for sale this year. As an extra bonus, there are solar panels mounted to the roof to keep things topped up.

Google Officially Ends Support For Android Ice Cream Sandwich

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was released back in 2011, making it 7 years old. Given that it is now Android 9.0 Pie, it is safe to assume that many Android users have since updated to newer versions of Android and have gotten newer devices, so much so that it doesn’t come as a surprise that Google is now discontinuing support for the update.

Announced on its Android Developers Blog, Google has revealed that they will no longer be supporting devices that run on Android Ice Cream Sandwich. “The Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) platform is seven years old and the active device count has been below 1% for some time. Consequently, we are deprecating support for ICS in future releases of Google Play services. For devices running ICS, the Google Play Store will no longer update Play Services APK beyond version 14.7.99.”
