VOLKSWAGEN COMMERCIAL VEHICLES TO UNVEIL NEW CAMPER VAN AT THE 2018 CARAVAN SALON

Jul 3, 2018

  • New Crafter-class camper with high roof, sleeping area in the back and bathroom
  • Full-production model based on last year's California XXL concept vehicle

Hannover, 3 July 2018 – Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has taken the 2017 California XXL concept vehicle and developed it into a camper van ready for full production. The company will present the new Crafter-based camper for the first time at the 2018 Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf (24 August to 2 September).

The production version of the new camper van follows the clear, fresh design of the California XXL concept vehicle. The design also creates a link to the iconic T6-based California camper van and will likewise be available with single or two-tone paintwork.

Inside, the new model features bright colours and practical solutions. The bathroom (with shower and WC), kitchen units and sleeping area integrated in the back have been systematically thought through and tailored to life on the move.

The Volkswagen California was launched in 1988 based on the third generation of the "Bulli". Now, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is producing the California based on the sixth generation and recently celebrated both the 30th anniversary of the start of production and the milestone of the 100,000th California produced. It makes the California the most successful camper van ever.

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has now used its heritage and expertise to develop a new production vehicle based on the Bulli's big brother.

Further details about Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles' new camper van will follow in the run-up to the Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf.
