Volkswagen ABT e-Transporter 6.1
The Volkswagen ABT e-Transporter is a 100% electric panel van with an 82 mile electric range, making it perfect for urban and last mile deliveries. It has zero emissions, zero road tax (VED) and charges from dead to 80% in 45 minutes at a DC charging station. The electric motor delivers instant torque with superb refinement for stress-free journeys, and the cargo area has a 6.7m3 load volume with a 996kg payload capacity.
There are two trims: Panel Van and Panel Van Advance. The Advance model has LED headlights, a heated windscreen, front and rear parking sensors, power-folding door mirrors and body-coloured bumpers and trim. The Panel Van is the entry-level model, but it’s still well-equipped, with a 6.5” touchscreen with App-Connect, rear parking sensors, climatic air conditioning, heated front seats and electric windows.
The ABT e-Transporter’s charge port is located on the passenger door and the battery is rated for more than 1,600 charge cycles. It’s built just as tough as the regular Transporter, only it’s cleaner, environmentally-friendly and VED free.
The ABT e-Transporter is powered by a 37.3kWh lithium-ion battery which powers an electric motor that produces 200Nm of torque. It’s smooth and refined to drive, with a DSG gear selector with Park ‘P’, Reverse ‘R’ and Drive ‘D’ modes.
The ABT e-Transporter has a 6.7m3 load volume and a 996kg payload capacity with a sliding door on the left and rear wing doors. The load compartment has LED lighting, folding lashing rings and a full height steel bulkhead without a window.
