A electric van with stylish look

The ABT tuning company has now gone into a new area, which is the electric car industry. ABT is the biggest VW group model tuner, after the amazing tuning cars and now it also produces electric models for the Geneva Motor Show. The new ABT electric vehicles will be on at the Geneva Motor Show - at stand 1244 in hall 1. The fully electric vehicle is an in-house development and is based on a VW T6, which is electrified at our subsidiary ABT e-Line.The Palexpo convention center, where the Motor Show will take place from March 7 - 17, 2019, is only a brisk walk away from Lake Geneva. The water level in the lake is regulated by the Barrage du Seujet power plant, which generates around 21.1 million kWh/year. This could be used to charge the battery of the new ABT e-Transporter more than half a million times.

With this vast amount of energy, you could also drive around the earth nearly 3,000 times. The vehicle will be presented at the auto show as a tuning version for the first time even before start of series production. The company is an official Premium Partner of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, meaning that sales are also handled by the vehicle manufacturer. The first deliveries to customers are expected for the beginning of the 3rd quarter of 2019. The new look of the -Transporter has got the usual ABT tuning accessories. The exhibition vehicle features a complete Aerokit with ABT front skirt add-on, front grille add-on, side skirts, rear wing and rear skirt set, in addition to covers for the tailpipe trims – for obvious reasons, no exhaust system was fitted. The sporty look was further enhanced by the 9.0 x 20 inch alloy wheels type ABT Sport GR, with glossy black" finish feature a green edge on the exhibition vehicle. They are combined with Continental tires in 275/35 ZR20. ABT suspension springsdo not only improve the handling, but also the look of the vehicle.


2019 ABT e-Transporter


However, the custom-made film wrap creates a link to the ABT RS6-E prototype, which was presented in 2018 and caused quite a stir with a system power of up to 1,018 HP (749 kW). The ABT e-Transporter is perhaps even more of a revolution in its own way. The electric motor in the ABT e-Transporter has a power of 82 kW (111 HP) and a maximum torque of 200 Nm. The 37.3 kWh battery achieves a range of 208 km, assuming a consumption of 18 kWh for 100 km as per NEDC. A larger battery with 74.6 kWh is expected to be available for those who intend to take longer trips. It extends the range to around 400 km. At a CCS quick charging station (40 kW), the battery can be charged to 80% capacity in 49 minutes (37.3 kWh version) or 98 minutes (74.6 kWh version). There is also plenty of capacity in other respects: The ABT e-Transporter, which is always delivered with a long wheelbase, offers 6.7 m³ loading space. Other versions, like the Caravelle, are available for passenger transport and look particularly attractive with the ABT tuning package. In addition to the e-Transporter, a new e-Caddy electric model is introduced, with up to 4.2 m³ in the load compartment and five seats, it is ideal for a variety of uses. It has the same motor, and therefore performance data, as its big brother. While the e-Caddy is only available with the smaller of the two batteries, it still has a slightly longer range of 220 km. This is due to the smaller dimensions and lower weight.
