We were delighted to show the Grand California range at October's Motorhome & Caravan Show at the NEC, Birmingham. We spoke to hundreds of visitors, all eager to discover our brand new motorhomes and share their passion for Volkswagen.
The Grand California made its UK debut at the February 2019 edition of the show. This time, we revealed both the 2+2 berth 600 and two-berth 680 with right-hand drive for visitors to discover. Every clever feature and design touch was on show - from the 600's folding roof bed to the fitted wardrobe in the 680.
With Grand California now open for order at a Van Centre near you,→ read on to pick which version you'd choose.
You drive a Volkswagen, you feel like you're in a club. It's cool to be part of.A real Volkswagen devoteeMotorhome & Caravan Show, October 2019
The Grand California 600 packs a kitchen, separate wet room, double bed and optional roof bed into one vehicle. Kids will love their upstairs hideaway just as much as you’ll enjoy the luxurious interior and convenient design details. What’s more, the Grand California 600 shares infotainment and driver assistance systems with the award-winning Crafter. Even if you’ve never driven a motorhome before, you’ll be right at home behind the wheel.
A bigger bed, larger kitchen space, a wardrobe... The Grand California 680 means you don't have to give anything up to get away from it all. There's plenty of storage to fill with souvenirs from your travels, a large awning for shady summer drinks and lots of worktop and storage space in the kitchen for preparing delicious local produce.
It wasn't all about the new addition to the family. We also showcased the California Ocean - perfect for people after a more compact camper van that can be used every day.
The California Ocean features the same basic elements - bed, kitchen and pop-up roof - that have defined what a compact camper van should be. It's an icon of the road and a ticket to stories and special memories for camper van fans everywhere.
Now the California has two bigger, younger brothers to share the journey with, the same spirit of adventure that's made Volkswagen vans a favourite for generations shows no signs of fading.
