German auto-giant shows off modern camper van
The camper van comes in two versions with the difference being the engine under the hood of the car.
The Beach version comes with a 2.0L diesel engine making 102hp while the Ocean version comes with a 2.0L gas engine with twice the power output of the diesel.
Regardless of which engine option you choose, both versions have the same camper features. You get the ability to sleep four people with a double bed in the main area and a roof bed. The Ocean model has an electrohydraulic pop-up roof and dimmable LED lighting.
Both versions come with an 11-gallon refrigerator, twin burner stove, and a stainless steel sink. VW includes a combination cup, ashtray, and towel holder as well.
Sources also reveal that the California also has lots of modern safety features with a Driver Alert System to detect unusual steering patterns that indicate driver fatigue.
Brake assist will apply full brake pressure in emergencies. Automatic Post Collision braking stops the vehicle after a crash. Pricing for the California hasn’t been announced, but VW promises pricing will be announced soon.
