Look ahead at the new California 6.1

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has revealed the first sketches and details of the new California 6.1.

 

The update for the campervan covers many aspects: the interior of the camper van has been enhanced; the multifunctional camper control unit in the roof console has been redesigned and digitalised, new assistance systems enhance safety and comfort; a new generation of infotainment with integrated eSIM opens up the world of mobile online services, and digital instruments are available for the first time (“Digital Cockpit”).

 

More than 18,000 Californias are sold per year (2018)*, making it the number 1 campervan and a true all-rounder, ideal for big trips and daily journeys. Now Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has further refined the top seller: the living and sleeping areas of the camper van have been carefully enhanced and optimised. Furthermore, the driver and front passenger sit in front of a redesigned dashboard including new instruments (analogue or as an option digital for the first time) and new online infotainment systems.

 

Like the Multivan 6.1 revealed earlier this year, the California 6.1 features electromechanical power steering. Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is giving the camper numerous new assistance systems, for example, “Lane Assist”, Side Protection and “Trailer Assist”, which makes light work of manoeuvring with a trailer. In addition, a side-wind compensation system makes travelling in a California 6.1 even safer.

 

The new California T6.1 will be launched with highly efficient 2.0-litre turbodiesel engines1 with an output of up to 146 kW /199 PS. The new camper generation will celebrate its world premiere at the end of August at the Caravan-Salon in Düsseldorf.
