Volkswagen has introduced a new service plan for its electric ABT eTransporter.
The eTransporter, which has an electric range of 82 miles, is one of the latest battery-powered vans to hit the market, offering lower running costs to buyers as well as smaller maintenance costs as a result of the electric powertrain’s limited number of moving parts.
The new servicing plan aims to bring additional peace of mind to owners of the eTransporter. Priced from £399, it includes three services, one MOT, a brake fluid change and a pollen filter replacement. It equates to three services for the price of two for buyers of the plan.
The eTransporter has an annual service schedule – or every 24,900 miles – as well as an extended inspection after 36 months. Following that, an extended inspection is required every two years.
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.”
Thanks to its electric powertrain, the eTransporter is exempt from road tax and can use London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone without charge. It’s also eligible for the government’s plug-in car grant.
