Kia Plies SEMA Attendees with Beer and Ice Cream Food Trucks
6 November 2014 - Autoblog
Kia's 2014 SEMA Show theme is "A Day At The Races," and in addition to a very powerful K900 luxury sedan, the company has revealed several vehicles that would make any day at the track more comfortable – and tasty.
The Ballast Point Sedona is a complete about-face for Kia's minivan, turning the family hauler into a beer truck for infield parties. As the name implies, the Sedona features beer on tap from the Ballast Point, a San Diego-based craft brewery. The vehicle also has restaurant-grade stainless steel counters, extra space for kegs and audio speakers integrated into the roof.
After seeing this Sedona, we actually now kinda like the idea of a minivan-based truck model. Are we nuts?
Those with a sweet tooth will be drawn to the Smitten Ice Cream Soul EV. It's painted cherry red with white upholstery inside, and the retro-look vehicle has room for the requisite ice cream maker.
Though Kia is catering to racing fans, it also built something for drivers. Billed as the "Ultimate Karting Sedona," this take on the minivan offers room for racing gear, tools and spare tires. There's a rack for a kart on top of the Sedona, and there's a trailer to pull a second kart for particularly serious enthusiasts.
