Nadal also voiced his approval of the new EV6 electric vehicle.
“My job naturally requires a lot of travel, and my lifestyle is not fully sustainable.
“But I’m determined to make the necessary changes where I can, starting with my personal use of the EV6 crossover in Mallorca and beyond,” Nadal said as per reports on Hyundai.
“I feel lucky to have the support of Kia and the new EV6 that will help drive my commitment.
“I would like to encourage others to join me in driving these kind of vehicles wherever possible.”
