Volkswagen California Ocean

Still the modern day Kombi.

Sleeping under the stars. Being wakened by the soothing rushing of the sea in the morning. Discovering our kiwi back yard and been on the road while still feeling at home: the California literally is pure freedom.

With its comfortable interior and well thought-out details, it transforms every trip into an unforgettable adventure. Savour your independence and travel wherever the road takes you. With everything you need right there with you.

    A whole world in the kitchen.

    Bacon butties, home-cooked steak or a kiwi classic fish and chips: In the California your perfect kiwi staples are at your fingertips. The kitchen is equipped with a gas hob with two rings, a stable cover that can be used as a worktop, and a removable washing-up bowl.

    Sleep like you’re on your perfect holiday.

    There’s not always a hotel at those hidden spots around New Zealand. Unless you have your own with you: with its spacious loft bed, the California offers you enough space and comfort to dream about your best holiday moments and fall asleep with the calming rushing of waves in your ears.

    A home everywhere.

    The California is your home on the road. Its spacious interior provides plenty of room to spread yourself out. Cook, sleep, relax – just like at home. Only with the whole world at your door.
