Volkswagen understand that no matter what kind of drivetrain your vehicle has it needs to be robust and dependable.

Functionality & Security

No two jobs are the same, which is why Volkswagen have designed the ABT e-Transporter 6.1 to give you ultimate space and versatility. The ABT e-Transporter 6.1 has the perfect rear door solution, no matter what the job is. Every van is available with a choice of either a large tailgate or versatile rear wing doors, and are available glazed or in solid metal for added security.

The ABT e-Transporter 6.1 features several storage options to create an organised and uncluttered cab, including cup holders, a foldable ruler tray, and upper and lockable lower glove compartments. The e-Transporter also has LED lighting throughout the interior, including in the cargo area as standard.

Extra peace of mind comes as standard in the ABT e-Transporter 6.1 with eight fastening aids which ensure your cargo is held firmly in place when driving. Extra features available include half height hardboard side panels and adjustable lashing eyes in the load compartment.

Available on the ABT e-Transporter 6.1 with a bulkhead, the new split locking functions keep you and your load safe and secure. The Postman mode is designed for drivers who are in and out of the cab often; it locks the load doors when the ignition is switched on and can only be unlocked and opened from within the van. Workshop mode allows you to keep your personal equipment and paperwork safely locked in the cab, but keeps the load area unlocked so you can still get on with loading and unloading without any fuss.

Advanced Safety Features

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.

Introducing Driver Steering Recommendation, a new feature for the Transporter 6.1 range. The system is designed to help stabilise the vehicle as you drive, and gently intervenes if it detects oversteer around corners.

As part of the ABT e-Transporter 6.1’s Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP), Crosswind Assist applies the brakes when it detects a strong crosswind. Standard across the Transporter 6.1 range, it automatically kicks in when you’re travelling above 50mph.

Why go electric?

The ABT e-Transporter 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 e-Transporter 6.1’s payload is not compromised, as the compact batteries are fitted below the load area.

With a high load capacity and a wide range of equipment as standard, the ABT e-Transporter 6.1 is built with your business in mind. Driving the ABT e-Transporter 6.1 means zero road tax (VED) and lower running and servicing costs, saving you and your business money. Plus, because the ABT e-Transporter 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.
