A New VW California 6.1 with Digital Controls

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles will be giving the new California 6.1 its world première at the end of August at the Caravan Salon show in Düsseldorf.

The 6.1 has:

  • A new front.
  • Enhanced kitchen units and beds
  • A new Digitised multi-function control panel in the overhead console.

Other new features inside the camper van include the optionally digital instruments and the next generation infotainment systems with integrated online connectivity.

New electro-mechanical steering also makes driving safer and easier, as it introduces driver assistance systems such as Lane Assist to the vehicle range.

The California has total sales of over 175,000 worldwide to date

One of the particularly striking features visually is the front section. The top part of the chrome-plated radiator grille forms a single unit with the new LED daytime running lights. Below has a larger air intake for the efficient engines. On the California Ocean 6.1 a chrome strip also adorns the new bumper.

Via the chrome elements the Ocean version differentiates itself externally from the Beach and Coast models. In all cases the sharper design emphasises the width of the California 6.1 and makes all versions of the camper look more serene on the road.
