It’s important to remember the e-Transporter is a conversion performed by ABT, even though you can buy it from a Volkswagen dealership. As such, the fact it is a fairly straightforward conversion makes sense – even if does fall short of the ingenuity and leadership you’d more typically expect from VW.
For some, its simplicity may be appealing, but other, more technically advanced electric vans can be just as dialled down should you wish them to be, as well as giving you the option of maximising your range in the process.
