New shipping route reduces delivery time of MG vehicles in Europe

China’s largest carmaker, SAIC Motor, recently exported 1,800 MG vehicles to Europe via its self-owned direct international route. It’s the first time this new route has been used and it will help realize the company’s goal of selling 100,000 of its self-owned brand vehicles in Europe by 2025.

The ship transporting the vehicles to Europe is the first-class cargo ship SAIC Anji Phoenix, whose fuel consumption is more than 10 percent lower than that of similar ships. The vessel has a capacity of 4,300 cars, making it the largest Ro-Ro cargo ship owned by SAIC Motor.

The company developed its own international route to the European market, in order to shorten the time needed to deliver vehicles to customers in Europe.

European route serves ambitious goal

In Europe, SAIC Motor is zeroing in on the booming new energy market. Since the European launch of the MG ZS EV, our smart all-electric city SUV has been high on the wish list of business and private drivers looking for a technological advanced, safe and environmentally friendly car, as well as smart pricing, resulting in a top listing in various sales lists. In addition, the MG ZS EV is the first electric SUV in the B segment to achieve the maximum of five stars in the Euro NCAP crash tests.

After the launch of the MG ZS EV in the UK, Norway and the Netherlands, MG is rapidly expanding its sales network across Europe. Showrooms have now also been opened in Denmark, Belgium, Luxembourg, France and Austria. Germany will follow soon, as other countries will.

SAIC Motor is planning to offer a wider range of electric vehicle products to the European market in the future. The company aims to sell 100,000 of its branded vehicles in Europe by 2025.
