The traditional ice cream van is dying out. But Paddy’s got a plan to save it, in the shape of the home-built Mr Nippy: the all-electric, all-terrain ice cream van for the 21st century. It sweeps streets, it crosses beaches, it’s even got an on-board rubber ring for aquatic ice cream delivery. After demonstrating the genius of Mr Nippy to Chris and Freddie around Blackpool, Paddy is ordered to a military complex on Salisbury Plain for a paintball shoot-out against a crack team of hot food vehicles.
Honda’s got a new electric car out. After giving it a thorough road test in the Peak District, Chris heads to Alton Towers for a race against the Honda’s electric rivals from Vauxhall and Mini. Which Paddy and Freddie are driving, naturally. Which battery-powered city car can escape from a deserted theme park the quickest?
