VW Camper T6.1 is a MPV ready to challenge the Alphard
The Volkswagen Camper Van will not be retired and instead there is a new version on its way. meanwhile, the hard working Multivan is getting a facelift with new cabin features and this should be part of the product lineup for Asia as MPV’s take a huge sales chunk in all markets year on year.
Codenamed the California T6.1, it will come in a few variants and the base T6.1 brings an available 10.3-in digital instrument cluster and a variety of available touchscreen-based infotainment systems with eSIM-based connected services. The California conversion complements that tech with a redesigned, digitalized camper control module in the roof console.
In addition to the digitized driver’s area, California 6.1 drivers will enjoy electro-mechanical power steering and an upgraded driver-assistance suite. Those towing trailers and toy haulers will be particularly happy about the trailer assist system, which provides automated takeover when attempting ever-challenging reverse maneuvers. Other new assistive technologies include lane assist, side protect and side-wind compensation.
