Hannover, 29 August 2019 – Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is presenting a further surprise as part of the world première of the new California 6.11 at the Caravan Salon in Dusseldorf (31 Aug. to 8 Sept.): for the first time the entry-level Beach version will have a kitchen. Until now this was reserved for the more exclusive Coast and Ocean lines. New this time: unlike the large row of kitchen units in the Coast and Ocean, being used in the Beach is a completely reworked fold-out mini kitchen. While, due to the broader kitchen, the Coast and Ocean are universally offered with a two-seater bench in the passenger compartment, the California Beach 6.1 can, thanks to the narrower mini kitchen, also optionally be ordered with a three-seater bench. That opens up the possibility for the first time for families of five to go camping with a California, complete with kitchen on board.

External identifying mark: a new front. Internal features include new dashboards with for the first time as an option fully digital instruments, plus a new camper control unit with touchscreen in the roof console. The kitchen and cabinet elements have been enhanced, the beds honed to perfection. Safety is improved by new features such as Cross Wind Assist. Optimum connectivity is guaranteed by new infotainment systems with integrated Internet access. Alongside the California 6.1, also being shown in Dusseldorf are the new Grand California and Caddy Beach.
