The event took place in a tennis court, dubbed the 'EV6 Court'. Its lighting system was electrically powered by a customised Kia EV6 GT-Line. The first dedicated electrified crossover vehicle by Kia boasts an advanced V2L (vehicle-to-load) function and serves as a portable, self-generating power supply.

According to Kia, Nadal will use the Kia EV6 crossover for his personal mobility in Mallorca as well as at major tennis tournaments, including the 2022 Australian Open. He has also expressed his interest to convert all vehicles used at the Rafa Nadal Academy and Rafa Nadal Foundation to EVs (electric vehicles) by 2022.
