Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has announced pricing for the latest generation California, ahead of UK dealers starting to take orders for the new campervan from 3 August and first deliveries before the end of the year.

Prices start at £37,657 for the Beach model. The Volkswagen California is the only vehicle in its class to be designed, engineered and built in-house by VW on the T6.

The new California is available in two trim levels – Beach and Ocean – and with a choice of three 2.0-litre engines ranging in power from 101 to 201bhp. All are Euro VI compliant and feature BlueMotion Technology modifications to give fuel consumption and emissions figures which have been lowered by up to 15 per cent. A 4Motion four-wheel drive version is also offered in conjunction with the 148bhp or range-topping 201bhp powerplant.

VW CaliforniaEntry to the California range starts with the Beach model which offers up to seven seats and sleeping space for four. The bench-seat easily folds to convert to a two-berth bed across the width of the vehicle, while a manual pop-up roof gives access to a further double bed. A fold-out table and chairs are stored in the sliding door and tailgate, while an integrated awning makes for a comfortable and practical camping experience. The Beach is available with a 2.0-litre 101bhp TDi engine with a five-speed manual gearbox, and a 2.0-litre TDi 148bhp with a six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG transmission.

The California Ocean replaces the SE model from the previous generation, with prices starting from £47,840. Customers can choose from two engines with either 148bhp or 201bhp and six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG gearboxes. 4Motion four-wheel drive variants mean the ultimate ‘home from home’ can go further and wider afield. The Ocean also adds an electro-hydraulic pop-up roof with lighting, plus a kitchenette with two rings, a fridge and sink.
