Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has won a new fleet deal to deliver 15 ABT e-Transporter 6.1 vans to aviation detailing business, Up & Away.

The all-electric fleet will be used by the team to transport aircraft and helicopter cleaning equipment to and from airports across the UK.

Up & Away Aviation Detailing serves the UK’s private aircraft industry by offering a full range of interior and exterior valeting, and detailing services.

The ABT e-Transporter was developed in collaboration with Premium Partner ABT e-Line and has an all-electric range of up to 82 miles, with cargo space of 6.7m3.

Flexible charging options allow for an 80% charge in 45 minutes.

The new fleet of all-electric ABT e-Transporters features a bespoke livery and has been converted to include tailored racking to store equipment securely in the vans.

Up & Away says the ABT e-Transporters will help it reach its carbon neutral targets.

Stefan Murphy, managing director for Up & Away Aviation Detailing, said, “We needed a fleet of vans that represented us as a business; vans that looked and felt premium, offered utmost reliability and provided us with a sustainable solution to help us reach our goal to become carbon neutral.”

Rob Holdcroft, head of Fleet for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, added, “We strive to work with our customers through every stage of the purchasing and aftersales experience and we are delighted to have been able to offer tailored, liveried premium vans to Up & Away Aviation Detailing as well as helping the business on its way to reach carbon neutral status.”
