The dazzling white, high-speed train on display at Berlin Central Station is just one of the eight new ICE 3 trains that Siemens delivered to Deutsche Bahn (DB) by the end of March. The first trains began successful operation in the DB rail network already in December 2013. The trains feature greatly enhanced comfort as well as increased energy efficiency. For example, their aerodynamic characteristics, which reduce wind resistance by some 20 percent compared to the previous model, have been further optimized to cut energy consumption. The new ICE 3 is also DB's first train to be equipped with a wheelchair lift on either side. Alexander Dobrindt (German Federal Minister for Transport and Digital Infrastructure), Rüdiger Grube (Chairman and CEO of Deutsche Bahn) and Jochen Eickholt (CEO of Siemens' Rail Systems Division) were all on hand to present the new ICE 3 to the public at Berlin Central Station. "We're very pleased that all the trains planned for domestic service have now arrived at DB. We've reached an important milestone for the project," said Eickholt.
