VW ABT e-Transporter joins Mobile Service Clinic fleet


Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has introduced the ABT e-Transporter van onto its Mobile Service Clinic fleet to provide remote, zero-emission, expert servicing to businesses.

The zero-emission van, which will join the clinic's fleet later this year, has a 75-mile range on a single full charge allowing Volkswagen trained technicians to reach businesses all over London, including those located in zero-emission zones, and reduce their downtime.

Vehicle downtime costs businesses up to £500 per van but with specially converted Mobile Service Clinics, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ expert technicians are able to carry out service work, inspections, A/C servicing, MOT repairs, minor warranty work and software updates remotely, while the vehicles are not being used.

The panel van is kitted out with an array of on-board tools including compressed air jacks and even a hand wash basin. It also has solar panels fixed to its roof that sustainably power the vehicle’s interior electrics with no requirement for an additional battery unit.

As a brand-new addition to the Mobile Service Clinic, provided by Alan Day Volkswagen, the all-electric van will carry out zero-emission journeys to customers across London. This is a vital element of the dealer group’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint in the capital as the company aims to expand its EV fleet.

Alan Day is a long-term franchise partner of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, providing premium customer service since 1972, and is the first Van Centre to add an ABT e-Transporter to its lineup of Mobile Service Clinics.
