The new camper van from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is based on the long-wheelbase version of the Multivan. For the first time, the California has sliding doors on both sides as standard.

The VW New California is based on the MQB platform and is 5,173 mm long, 1,941 mm wide without exterior mirrors and 1,990 mm high with the pop-up roof lowered. All versions of the New California include the pop-top roof with a front window as well as a large front opening and two further windows to the sides in the bellows (all with mosquito net) as well as the sliding doors on the left and right, for which an awning can be ordered as an option. Instead of a rear bench seat, there are now individual seats in the rear. From "Beach Tour" upwards, camper functions can be controlled via a camper control unit in the front passenger C-pillar. The alloy wheels are available in sizes 16, 17, 18 and 19”.

The camper van is available with various drive systems. In addition to the four-cylinder TDI with 110 kW (150 PS), a 150 kW (204 PS) TSI petrol engine is available for the front-wheel drive versions. The new plug-in hybrid drive offers a system output of 180 kW (245 PS) and is equipped with 4Motion all-wheel drive. The towing capacity is said to be up to 2,000 kg.

Pre-Sales Start in June

The VW New California camper family consists of five models: The California "Beach" offers six seats and two sleeping berths under the manually operated pop-up roof, the five-seater "Beach Tour" has swivel front seats and two additional sleeping berths and an additional camper battery. The "Beach Camper" motorhome is also equipped with a mini-kitchen in the rear. In addition to four seats, the "Coast" and "Ocean" also offer a full kitchenette on the driver's side. Pre-sales start in June 2024.
