Volkswagen Crafter based California XXL Concept to debut at Caravan Salon Düsseldorf



 

Highlight of Caravan Salon this August: California XXL motorhome concept vehicle on the basis of the Crafter

  • California XXL provides a look into the future of the Crafter motorhome, featuring fixed high roof, kitchen and wet room
  • Crafter concept vehicle based on medium wheelbase and fixed roof superstructure transfers the qualities of the popular California to a large motorhome


Hannover, 11 August 2017 – The Volkswagen California based on the most popular campervan ever – the Bulli - serves as the archetypal motorhome. For decades it won the hearts of thousands, especially experienced camping enthusiasts, with a systematically thought-out and highly flexible interior. Now, the new and bigger Crafter with its large number of driver assistance systems, comfortable handling and low fuel consumption offers a unique opportunity to transfer the qualities of the California to the next size up in Volkswagen motorhomes and to refine these still further. The California XXL concept vehicle now being presented by the Hannover-based manufacturer is a more fully-grown variant of the motoring globetrotter.
 
The innovative vehicle body and interior layout creates lots of space inside the California XXL, including for a comfortable bed around 2 metres long. On top of that, a screened-off, spacious living area allows astonishing freedom of movement. A bench seat and the front seats, which can be rotated 180 degrees, provide plenty of room. Typically designed for the purpose and practically thought out as in the California are the kitchen with twin-hob cooker and fridge, sink and extendable work surface. Thanks to the large dimensions of the California XXL, a cleverly devised wet room with shower and WC facilitates added comfort.

Despite its size it cuts through the air well. Even given a height of 2.9 metres, sophisticated aerodynamics (including special indentations in the completely redesigned high roof) ensure that the drag coefficient remains within the favourable range of a conventional Crafter.

Further information on the new California XXL concept vehicle will follow in the course of its world premiere: It is being unveiled at the 'Caravan Salon Düsseldorf' (26 August to 3 September 2017).
