About ABT e-Line

Mobility and its Development

Since its founding in 1896, ABT has been dedicated to mobility and its improvement. In this way, we utilise our vast experience and the expertise of our engineers to continually realise innovative projects relating to the topic. ABT e-Line was born of this innovative capacity.

Building on our experiences of conventional drive technologies, we are always at the cutting edge, providing suitable solutions for the challenges of the future – also for Electromobility. ABT e-Line has consistently pursued this path for over a decade. 

With their quiet and clean drive, electric vehicles have been a success for quite a while, especially in inner cities and metropolitan areas, and help to maintain peoples’ quality of life.

The pioneering work in this sector began with the development of an e-Caddy and an e-Transporter. This first phase was characterised by various projects in close co-operation with partners from industry and science. Several follow-up and new projects stemmed from this, in which we have made a name for ourselves as engineering service provider. We were able to demonstrate our close affiliation to tuning in 2018 with the publication of a concept study, the RS6-E with performance-increasing hybrid drive. Our passion for motorsport also constantly inspires us in the global Formula E series, in which we have enjoyed many years’ success.

Our Core Competences

The fact that a vehicle tuning company concerns itself with electromobility may come as a surprise. However, because of the spirit of innovation deeply rooted in our DNA and the desire to explore new horizons, we have also established ourselves in the field of e-mobility with ABT e-Line. For over a decade, we have not only focused on the development of electric vehicles, but we also provide engineering services for third parties.

The spectrum ranges from the development and programming of control units, lithium batteries and complete drive trains to the construction of road-ready prototypes. For special requirements, we even have the capability to produce special vehicles and small series.

The success story continued in 2018 with a further high point. A collaboration with Volkswagen Nutzfahrzeuge combines the best of both worlds: a bespoke electric drive (from ABT) and a proven large series-production vehicle (from Volkswagen). In doing so, the Transporter and Caddy models are available throughout the EU in a small series production via the Volkswagen Commercial Network.
