VOLKSWAGEN COMMERCIAL VEHICLES LAUNCHES ELECTRIC VAN SERVICE PLAN FOR ABT ETRANSPORTER 6.1

  • Bespoke service plan introduced for all-electric Volkswagen ABT eTransporter 6.1
  • Electric van servicing is around 30 per cent cheaper with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles transferring savings straight to customers
  • Plan includes three services, MOT, brake fluid and pollen filter change
  • Service plan available to ABT eTransporter 6.1 customers for £399

Milton Keynes, UK – Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has launched a new electric van service plan for the new zero-emission ABT eTransporter 6.1, passing EV maintenance savings onto customers.

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 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.

As servicing costs are up to 30% cheaper for electric vans, because powertrains feature fewer moving parts and do not require oil replacements, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is ensuring customers see the financial benefit, too, as part of its Working With You promise.

The eTransporter, now available to order at 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. The ultimate zero-emissions urban logistics van offers an all-electric range of up to 82 miles* with cargo space of 6.7m3. Flexible charging options allow for 80% charge in just 45 minutes.

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).

David Hanna, Head of Aftersales at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, said: “Our new bespoke service plan means that fleet managers, SMEs and sole traders who choose to go green with our first all-electric van not only benefit from on-the-road reduced running costs but also lower servicing and maintenance fees. As part of our Working With You promise, we are passing the savings associated with EV servicing directly onto our loyal customers, so they can focus on their day jobs.”
