California 6.1

Where will you go next?

Whether at home or away, the California 6.1 is the ideal travel and leisure camper van to make you feel right at home anywhere. Experience the efficient engines, high-quality interior fittings, modern infotainment and driver assistance systems as well as the innovative mobile online services.

60 years in the making

The movement that began with the Volkswagen camper van – a rolling symbol for independence and freedom – now brings you a true home on four wheels in the California 6.1. There is no better way to add to the success of a legend. And no better way to express your attitude to life.

Elevated roof

The California 6.1 offers comfort in a small space. You can set up the elevating roof of the California 6.1 in just a few easy steps at your holiday destination or stopover. The expanding roof gives you extra space to move around in the passenger compartment. Setting up the elevating roof is easy in the California Ocean as it’s operated electrically. As night falls, you can transform the camper van into your own comfortable bedroom to sleep four.

Prepare a tasty meal anywhere, any time. A kitchen on wheels: the California 6.1 offers you a fully fitted kitchen with a cool box, sink and stove kitchen unit. Plus there’s a camping table and chairs which can be set up outside or stowed neatly away to save space when not being used.

More comfort, more connectivity

The California 6.1 makes your journey as comfortable as possible with intelligent mobile online services and next-generation infotainment systems. The new infotainment systems are fully touchscreen and feature redesigned graphics, as well as an integrated SIM card as standard that offers a range of online functions and services.

The Volkswagen Digital Cockpit is a customisable, full colour digital 10.25" gauge cluster that lets the driver change views to display the most relevant information:

  • Classical view showing the speedometer and rev counter dials in a traditional format
  • Digital view without dials - vehicle speed and key information is displayed in text format
  • Digital view with additional information - as above but with additional vehicle and trip information displayed
  • Comes as standard on the California 6.1 Ocean

Constant online connectivity

All-new across the California 6.1 range, the integrated SIM card (eSIM) comes as standard with the new infotainment systems. The eSIM opens up a range of online-based functions and services to California 6.1 owners.

For example, following an accident, eCall automatically send the vehicle location to an emergency response centre and establishes a voice connection. If the driver doesn't respond, eCall automatically informs the emergency services. Internet connectivity also lets the California 6.1 access the new 'We Connect' world of mobile online service (MOS).

Your second pair of eyes

The California 6.1 has practical driver assistance and safety systems to support you in critical situations, when you're parking or changing lanes and much more.

Always there for you

Be prepared for almost anything with the safety systems in the California 6.1. The driving systems can safely intervene, helping to reduce the risk of accidents on the road.

Newly launched and standard across the T6.1 range, Driver Steering Recommendation gives the driver suggested inputs to help stabilise the vehicle. The system also intervenes using gentle adjustments if it recognises oversteer when cornering.
