Stage 4: Lanzarote Tour

Good weather did not accompany the beginning of the fourth stage, but Pepe Rodríguez and Germán were able to take a spin around Lanzarote and enjoy its volcanic landscapes and typical cuisine.

Route through Paradise

The day prior to departure for Stage 4 of the #eVuelta, the Canary Islands welcomed us with storms. Pepe Rodríguez and some colleagues from this stage had problems landing on the island. But once there, the Lanzarote sky opened up and showed us the beauty of the landscapes of the fire island.

 

The journey

We began very early at Endesa headquarters in Arrecife. There we met Germán, the Endesa employee and pilot for this stage. Whilst we loaded his vehicle for departure and to show us the island Pepe appeared eager to begin the route. The tour for this stage led us to discover some of the most spectacular natural marvels. Who wouldn’t want to get going?

Pepe was hungry, so we stopped to have lunch at the La Geria Natural Site, very close to the National Timanfaya Park. A site covered with a spectacular black cloak of volcanic ash. In this barren corner, we discovered a wine cellar that makes maximum use of this land to grow different kinds of plants and use their fruits.

After tasting typical products from the area we resumed our journey and enjoyed the lunar landscape. The variety of colours present (reds, browns, ochres, blacks or oranges) give the park an extraordinary beauty.

Our tour around Lanzarote concluded in the headquarters where local authorities were waiting to welcome us. Employees from Endesa headquarters in Lanzarote took advantage to come close and meet Pepe. It was a pleasure sharing a few moments with such nice people.

Get to know the cars from the stage

The 2nd Tour of Spain in Electric Vehicle uses two kinds of efficient vehicle currently on the market:

The Kia Soul EV, with zero emissions, electric autonomy of up to 250 km and innovative technology that enables recovering up to 12% of kinetic energy; the battery recharges when braking and in retention.

On our journey, we also used the Kia Niro Plug-in Hybrid (Niro PHEV) that combines major versatility with very low fuel consumption and emissions. Therefore, it has the ZERO label and can drive free of restrictions during the high contamination episodes in major cities. It enjoys bonuses when parked in regulated areas. The 100% electric version of this model comes out on the market soon. 

 

Taking part

The electric scooter hunt has even reached the Canary Islands. On this occasion, we wanted to make it a little difficult and we hid the car well, but it was to no avail because they found us. Sandra was the winner this time. Congratulations!
