Volkswagen California

Limitless freedom on four wheels

Freedom has transformed over the years, from the peace-loving 60s and 70s to today. Back then, we built the world’s most iconic camper—the Kombi. Now we have your modern-day answer for freedom—the California. You will feel right at home while exploring what our Kiwi backyard has to offer. Wherever you’re heading, the California campervan will transform your trip into an unforgettable adventure to remember.

The Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) is designed to provide a standardised measurement and enables the consumer to make reliable comparisons between vehicles in terms of energy (fuel and/or electricity) consumption, emissions, and electric vehicle range. However, it should be noted that the results of this test may not accurately reflect the actual fuel consumption, emissions, or range that a driver might experience in the real world. Actual results may vary depending on various factors such as driving style, road conditions, temperature, weather, vehicle load, and maintenance. Therefore, the WLTP results should be considered as an indicator of the vehicle's performance and not as a guarantee of the actual energy consumption, emissions, or range that a driver will experience in real-world driving conditions, or for making a vehicle-to-vehicle comparison. All WLTP test values are provided in accordance with New Zealand Land transport Rule: Vehicle Efficiency and Emissions Data 2022.
