The famous VW Transporter will soon be available with electric engines. Launching in early 2020 in the UK, the new VW e-Transporter will not be built by Volkswagen but by their partner firm, ABT. With emissions charges and fuel bills, Volkswagen are keeping up with modern times with the reveal of the first fully electric VW Transporter.
It will only be available in long wheelbase meaning the cargo capacity of the VW e-Transporter will be 6.7 m3. Maximum payload is 1,186kg with a single battery or 695kg with the twin battery.
Depending on which battery option is selected, the driving range will differ. The stated NEDC range allows for 134 miles in the single battery while the twin battery offers an impressive 250 miles.
To summarise, when the VW e-Transporter comes available, the choices will be between a higher payload or a higher driving range.
A quick charging station can allow for an 80% charge in just 49 minutes with the single battery or 98 minutes in the twin battery.
If you can’t wait for 2020 for the electric VW Transporter, the e-Caddy will be made available by Volkswagen in late 2019.
The larger e-Crafter could also be an option with right-hand drives launching in 2020, too.
Introducing the Volkswagen eTransporter. If you’re looking for the best in functional, working class van technology, with the reliability that Volkswagen has come to be know for, then you can’t beat the new eTransporter. For style and reliability, the new eTransporter is exactly what you’re looking for!
Let’s begin with the plethora of driver convenience features offered by the eTransporter. With and acoustic vehicle alert system, Bluetooth hands free kit, cross wind assist, and a driver alert system, you get all the modern convenience you’d expect from a Voklswagen. Add to that the Voklswagen power steering and a height and longitudinally adjustable steering column, and driving becomes not only a breeze, but a joy! There’s even a multi-function display with premium multi-color display options and an SD card slot. For safety, Volkswagen has included front assist including a city emergency braking system.
If you need a bit more entertainment while behind the wheel, the eTransporter is replete with features! These include 2 USB interfaces of the Type-C variety in the dashboard. There are 4 audio speakers, a composition color radio with a 6.5” touchscreen, digital radio reception (DAB+), and Volkswagen app connect!
The interior features extend beyond just entertainment, however. There are a number of functional interior features to help make your day and your drive that much easier. For starters, there is a 12V socket; comfort headliners in the cab; a dash panel with open stowage compartments; drink holders and a lockable glovebox; dimmable dashboard illumination; a dust and pollen filter; an electronically controlled air conditioning system; and an electronically controlled heating system!
Adding to those features, we have heated driver and front passenger seats; a leather trimmed multi-functional steering wheel, LED interior lighting in the load space area (so you’ll never have to worry about losing your footing while stepping into and out of the van); LED interior lighting with two reading lights in the roof console, and reinforced lashing rings for holding down heavy loads and keeping them stable during transport
As if the interior features weren’t enough, the exterior is just as flush with modern convenience and technology. This includes 4-stage windshield wiper intermittent control; closing rear wing door with unlatching from the outside; daytime running lights; electric windows; h7 twin halogen headlamps, and heat insulating windows in the cab. But it doesn’t stop there. The eTransporter also includes convex exterior mirrors, a radiator grill with chrome trim, and a left sliding door in the load compartment.
No discussion of a vehicle would be complete without mentioning safety features, and the Volkswagen eTransporter delivers in this area as well. There are both driver and passenger front air bags, with passenger airbag deactivation; a single tone horn; and a warning buzzer and light for driver and front passenger seat belts when not properly fastened.
Rounding out our discussion, lets look at the feature that makes this electric vehicle electric: the battery! The Volkswagen eTransporter comes with a lithium ion, 37.3 kW capacity battery. With fast charging, charging from 0-80% takes only 45 minutes! With standard wall charging, users can expect a full charge from 0-100% in only 9 hours.
