Stage 5 Seville - Córdoba

After a visit to the local market to acquire fresh produce from the Sevillian orchards, Pepe Rodríguez and Juan drove from Seville to Córdoba in the rain but they didn't get into difficulties. 

Travel without contaminating

They say the rain in Spain stays mainly on the plain but this was not so true at the start of this stage.

We began in San Francisco square next to the town council. What a pity the weather did not favour us to be able to enjoy this emblematic site in the heart of the city.


The journey

Pepe Rodríguez joined us from Seville to Cordoba, together with Juan, an Endesa employee.

This morning, both met up in a local greengrocer where they bought products from the Andalusian countryside. Market activity was buzzing even before the first buyers appeared and fresh products from Seville orchards were piled high on the stands. Among these local vendors was Fernando’s stand, nicknamed Lime Green, where Pepe and Juan made a mandatory stop.

We then began our journey to Cordoba. Despite the rain, the climate did not hinder our enjoyment of the people’s warmth in the beautiful landscapes in the south of Spain.

We arrived at Cordoba town council square around 13h. The local media were waiting for us there to discuss the details of our stage.


A few points of interest

After several interviews we took the mandatory photos with both cars and local authorities. At the photocall, we were joined by the Councillor for Mobility, the Endesa Director for Andalusia and Extremadura and the KIA area manager.

The entire team stopped for lunch in one of the many top quality restaurants that Cordoba offers to bid farewell to the city in style before continuing our journey to Merida.

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.

During this stage that passed through water, Cristian was our electric scooter winner. He beat the other five people who arrived running - intending to win the scooter - by just a few seconds.
