Volkswagen California XXL teased
Crafter-based motorhome to be revealed in August.
Volkswagen has released a trio of teaser sketches for its new California XXL motorhome, scheduled to debut at the 2018 Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf next month.
Essentially a production version of the California XXL motorhome concept shown at last year’s Caravan Salon, the new camper van is based on the Crafter commercial van, and will sit atop the T6 Transporter-based California in the company’s line-up.
Like its smaller sibling, the California XXL will be available with single- or two-tone paintwork (the latter pictured), also offering a shower, toilet, kitchen units, and sleeping area.
Volkswagen says the interior itself will also offer bright colour options, allowing customers to tailor their camper van to personal tastes.
Final specifications are yet to be detailed, though the concept version measured 2.9 metres tall and 5986mm long, using the medium-wheelbase Crafter as its donor vehicle.
Power will likely come from a range of four-cylinder turbo-diesel engines offered in the Crafter – the most powerful of which makes 130kW and 410Nm, hooked up to either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic.
