The ABT e-Transporter 6.1 is available to order now, as either a panel van or kombi van.

Front Assist with City Emergency Breaking

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.

​Driver Steering Recommendation

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.

Crosswind Assist

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.

Charging Options​

Simple and flexible

The Combined Charging System (CCS) socket on the new ABT e-Transporter 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.

Fast charging, Top-up in no time

Conventional alternating current (AC) chargers will recharge an electric vehicle overnight. However a direct current (DC) charger works much faster. With power up to 50kW at their disposal, a DC charger can bring the ABT e-Transporter 6.1 from 0-80% in as little as 45 minutes5. If charging at home, a wallbox provides you with up to 55% approximately higher charging performance and consequently shorter charging time than a normal domestic mains socket. With help from a Government grant, you can get up to 75% off the total costs of installing the wallbox, along with any other associated installation costs (capped at £350 incl. VAT).

Range, Go further

How far you can drive in your electric vehicle depends on a variety of factors including driving style, temperature, road surface and payload. In standard conditions your ABT e-Transporter 6.1 can travel up to 82 miles on a single charge1.
