Volkswagen launches electric van service plan
Volkswagen is to offer a bookable service plan for its new ABT eTransporter 6.1 electric van.
With electric vans 30% cheaper on average to service, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is offering three services for the price of two to customers who purchase a bespoke ABT eTransporter 6.1 plan.
For £399, customers will receive three services, one MOT, a brake fluid change and pollen filter replacement. The eTransporter has an annual service schedule (or 24,900 miles) with an extended inspection after 36 months (74,500 miles). Following that, an extended inspection is required every two years.
The eTransporter, now available to order from UK van centres, has been developed in collaboration with Premium Partner ABT e-Line, combining quiet and smooth driving, instant torque, fast charging and high load capacity.
It is said to offer an all-electric range of up to 82 miles with cargo space (on an unconverted base vehicle) of 6.7m3.
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, as well as being eligible for the government Plug-in Van Grant (PiVG).
