Advanced safety features

The ABT e-Transporter 6.1 comes with the latest range of our innovative Driver Assistance systems, making it safe and easy to drive.  

Volkswagen were the first to include Front Assist and City Emergency Braking as standard across its entire van range. The upgraded Front Assist detects when the vehicle ahead is getting too close, as well as both pedestrians and cyclists, and will prepare the ABT e-Transporter 6.1’s brakes if needed. If the risk remains, the system will partially apply the brakes to give you a helping hand.
