DAKAR RALLY WITH AN ELECTRIC CAR
ACCIONA DAKAR ECOPOWERED

For the first time ever, someone will face the toughest motor race in the world without a single liter of fuel in the car, and without emitting CO2.

A major challenge that beyond the sport challenge is a project of innovation, environmental sustainability and responsible leadership into the future.

I have done the Dakar Rally 8 times and I love it, but my evolution in consciousness and environmental commitment has moved me away from it, and I could only go back there in a truly innovation and sustainability project.  Many time ago I dreamed to participate with an electric car, something never done one before, and where the aim is not so much the race itself, but use it as a means to disseminate values of respect and commitment to a more sustainable future.

We have many dreams. Sometimes we get to struggle to achieve one. And sometimes we get it. This is for me one of these very rare moments in life that one of your dreams comes true.

But there have been two years of hard work, a lot of tension, high uncertainty, and being able to develop an extremely complex project in all its aspects: Sport side, technological, economic, communication and people management.

I assure you that there is a high risk of failure, many people will criticize us, many will say it's impossible, and we do not have everything under control. I guess if one of the above ingredients would be missing, it would mean that we are not really doing something new and different.  But that's what motivates us: We are not going to repeat or improve what some others have already done before; we want to do something that has never been done, and do it through a sporting adventure with very clear purpose and values.


And everything has been possible because we have found a great company that has entrusted us. ACCIONA has accepted the challenge convinced that it fits a lot with their sustainability values and attitude of working to make a better world from everyday work and innovation really focused to the people.

You can follow the development of this project both on this website and in the official project site.
