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 eTransporter 6.1’s brakes if needed. If the risk remains, the system will partially apply the brakes to give you a helping hand.

Why go electric?

Power and performance

The ABT eTransporter 6.1’s electric drivetrain doesn’t compromise on power. The standard 83kW electric motor packs 200 Nm of torque and can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 17.4 seconds. Built to the high standards of quality you’ve come to expect from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, the motor is lighter, quieter and smoother to drive than ever before. Plus, the ABT eTransporter 6.1’s payload is not compromised, as the compact batteries are fitted below the load area. We’re so confident in the quality of the ABT eTransporter 6.1, that the high voltage battery comes with an eight years or 100,000 miles warranty (whichever is soonest) on all material or manufacturing defects.

Built for your business

With a high load capacity and a wide range of equipment as standard, the ABT eTransporter 6.1 is built with your business in mind. Driving the ABT eTransporter 6.1 means zero road tax (VED) and lower running and servicing costs, saving you and your business money. Plus, because the ABT eTransporter 6.1 is zero-emissions, it’s also exempt from low emission zone charges, including the London Congestion Charge. The government now offers grants that can lower the sale price of your electric vehicle and even cut the cost of installing at-home charging stations. You can take advantage of these money-saving initiatives that make going green more affordable as well as practical. The ABT eTransporter 6.1 is currently gaining qualification for this grant.

Charging Options

Simple and flexible

The Combined Charging System (CCS) socket on the new ABT eTransporter 6.1 provides a flexible charging solution, combining the ability to charge via both AC and DC. This means you can easily charge your vehicle at home or on the go. If you need to charge while away from home, there is an ever-expanding network of public charging points across the country. You can also charge at home via a domestic 3-pin socket4 or a wallbox. A Type 2 charging cable is included with the vehicle as standard.

Introducing ABT e-Line

A perfect match: Volkswagen and ABT e-Line

We're delighted to collaborate with ABT e-Line, a company that is considered a pacesetter for electric mobility for both motorsport and road vehicles.

Together we have introduced the ABT eTransporter 6.1, an all-electric version of the iconic Transporter 6.1 and our first fully electric van in the UK. Replacing the internal combustion engine with an electric power train has the potential to greatly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector.

Important information :
1.
Figures shown are for comparability purposes and were obtained after the battery had been fully charged. Mains electricity required for charging. Only compare electric range figures with vehicles tested to the same technical procedures. Figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the starting charge of the battery, accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load.
2.
On the Road (OTR) includes: First Registration Fee, Delivery to Van Centre, Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) and Number Plates. Pricing subject to change including in the event of change in the applicable VED or VAT rates. Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles may change RRPs at any time (this includes where there are government changes in regulation and/or legislation). There may be a delay to any RRP displaying correctly on our materials. Always obtain prices from your chosen Van Centre. From 1 April 2020, the official CO2 emissions values used to calculate Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) charges changed for all passenger carrier registrations in the UK, due to a change in the method of testing. This will affect the recommended 'on the road' price you pay (in most circumstances, prices will increase). Choice of wheels and other options may affect fuel consumption and emissions data (which may affect the amount of VED payable and therefore the ROTR price). Please consult your local Van Centre for details of VED charges and recommended 'on the road' prices applicable to passenger carriers registered after 1 April 2020.
3.
These figures were obtained after the battery had been fully charged. The ABT eTransporter 6.1 is a battery electric vehicle requiring mains electricity for charging. Figures shown are for comparability purposes. Only compare fuel consumption, CO2 and electric range figures with other vehicles tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the starting charge of the battery, accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load. Zero emissions while driving. Data correct at [05/20].
4.
Home charging using a domestic socket will depend on the condition and suitability of the wiring in your home. Always consult a qualified electrician before charging when using a domestic socket for the first time, or, if the socket is to be used as the primary source of charging. Domestic sockets on the same circuit as other appliances, particularly those in frequent use, will draw additional amperage which may result in a breaker switch being 'tripped'. Establishing a separate circuit for home charging will help ensure your electric vehicle is supplied with a consistent, uninterrupted current. For optimum charging, we recommend installing an electric vehicle charging point at home. Please ensure your plug is standard, fully functional and correctly installed before using it to charge your car.
5.
Charging times will depend on various factors, including temperature, state of the battery, state of and capabilities of the charging unit and power supply. Actual charging time will vary depending on the level of charge in the battery, as well as environmental conditions. Charging times will also be affected by the charging curve for example once charging passes 80%, charging will slow to protect the battery’s longevity.
