Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has become the latest major van manufacturer to launch a fully electric model in the UK.
The ABT eTransporter 6.1 – the brand’s first fully electric LCV – is now available to order.
Developed in partnership with ABT e-Line, the model claims a range of up to 82 miles and can be charged to 80% in just 45 minutes.
The vehicle’s compact battery is fitted underneath the load area to avoid compromising the load area. It boasts a carrying capacity of 6.7m3and a payload of up to 996kg.
With its zero-emission status, all variants of the ABT eTransporter 6.1 are exempt from road tax (VED) and afforded unrestricted access to the London Ultra Low Emission Zone and Clean Air Zones. They also qualify for OLEV’s Plug-in Van Grant (PiVG).
