The California has been an icon of the open road since it first launched in 1988. The Grand California is Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ latest addition to its proud story of building freedom on four wheels. Featuring a comfortable, spacious interior, cutting-edge technology and a platform taken from the proven Crafter, the Grand California motorhome expands upon previous generations of camper van.
The Grand California will be open for order in early October with pricing starting from £68,899 (RRP including VAT).
Stretch out and relax
Featuring plenty of space to take home comforts on the road, the Grand California fits beds for two adults and two children, a separate bathroom and comfy living space into a safe, efficient package. The white surfaces create an airy atmosphere, helped by the optional panoramic skylights. Enjoy open plan van life wherever you go.
Comfort and style
A defining feature of the all-new Grand California is the separate wet room. The 840x800mm compartment includes a toilet, shower and space-saving sink. There’s also integrated shelving and storage for toiletries and towels. The ventilating skylight clears steam quickly and motion-sensing lights as standard add a touch of style.
Little things, big results
You don't build the world's best-selling camper van without having good ideas along the way. Ideas like an external temperature-controlled shower - perfect for hosing sand or mud off after a long day - or built in storage for the camping chairs and table.
A simple touchpad controls lighting, water and battery levels. The dual fuel heating operates on gas or mains electricity to keep you comfortable all year round, as does the optional roof-mounted air conditioning. Optional solar panels and TV satellite dish bring home comforts to the road.
Making the drive a holiday
The Grand California carries over the advanced safety and assistance features of the award-winning Crafter, with the following as standard:
Front Assist to monitor your surroundings with City Emergency Braking
Front and rear parking sensors to help you into tight spots
Crosswind Assist to keep you stable in high winds
Driver Alert to encourage breaks on long trips
Nothing relaxes like a good night's sleep. Whether you rest your head in the 680's fixed double bed or send the kids upstairs to sleep in the 600's roof bed, you can sleep soundly in the Grand California.
Put your feet up
Life on the road doesn't have to be tiring. After days of exploring and adventure, up to four people can rest in the modern, relaxing interior of the Grand California.
Home from home
The Grand California includes all the modern features you need to make your trip comfortable, however long you spend on the road. There's heating and air conditioning to keep the interior temperature just right, a sophisticated lighting design for a luxurious feel, and sockets and WiFi so you can stay fully charged and in touch with friends and family.
