Look ahead at the new California 6.1

2 July 2019

 

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.

 

If you'd like to be kept informed of when the 6.1 will be landing in the UK, contact Breeze Van Centre Poole on 01202 713100.

Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited are Appointed Representatives of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 571076). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of finance providers and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time.
