Green light for new electric SUVs

BREMERHAVEN. At the beginning of January, the start signal was given at the BLG AutoTerminal for unloading the new BMW iX3, the first fully electric SUV from this manufacturer. The first units of the new model were delivered by the ship “Phoenix Leader” from the shipping company NYK Line, before being transported by transporter to dealers throughout Germany and Europe – for their initial fitting out as part of the market launch. This year, more new electric vehicles are expected at the BLG AutoTerminal Bremerhaven, where around 2.1 million vehicles were transhipped in 2019.
