ABT VW e-Transporter Tuned Electric Van Revealed


ABT Sportsline, as the world's largest tuner for vehicles of the Volkswagen Group (especially Audi), through its ABT e-Line subsidiary, is introducing a very special version of the Volkswagen Transporter – the ABT e-Transporter, which will be presented at the Geneva Motor Show.

The ABT e-Transporter (already hinted last fall together with ABT e-Caddy) is based on the Volkswagen T6 and will be officially available also from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. First deliveries to customers are expected to begin in the 3rd quarter of 2019.

ABT offers the e-Transporter with a single (37.3 kWh) or double battery (74.6 kWh) in commercial or passenger version. The bigger battery version seems reasonable, but the 400 km (250 miles) of NEDC range will be difficult to achieve in normal conditions.
