Limited edition California and Multivan hit Australian shores

5 June 2020

Limited Edition California Beach Camper Van and Multivan Cruise on-sale first online

Sydney – Volkswagen Australia is pleased to announce two extremely limited edition versions from its inbound T6.1 range: the California Beach and the Multivan Cruise. Just 30 units of each will be available to specify and purchase online from 10am 24th June; but customers had better be quick – this is the only chance of securing these vehicles in this unique specification in 2020. 

While the late 2020 arrival of Volkswagen’s updated range of vans and people movers has many customers excited for the introduction of the 6.1’s new EU6-compliant engines and raft of standard safety and infotainment, the announcement of the return of the iconic Camper Van as part of the range has certainly captured the public’s imagination.

As Australians can begin to once again plan weekends away exploring their own backyard, customers have a chance to own the very first new generation Camper, the California Beach, as a highly specified Limited Edition via online purchase on the Volkswagen Australia website. 

With its unique two-tone paint and a raft of premium features, the vehicle will be the only fleet of Campers to arrive this year and in time for summer holidays.  

The full California range will be available online to order from 1st August for 2021 delivery with a starting price of $82,990 RRP.

In addition, a limited-run, highly specified Multivan Cruise Limited Edition is also available to purchase online, limited to just 30 units.

Harking back to the iconic Kombi Van, the Multivan Cruise model offers iconic design with some of the latest in tech and features. Available in a single short wheelbase variant with a TDI340/7-speed DSG engine and transmission combination, the Cruise builds on the popularity of previous special edition Multivan such as the Kombi 70 Years and the Launch Edition from the T6 range.

Transporter Van Update

As previously detailed, the T6.1 also includes Volkswagen’s venerable Transporter van range of workhorses. Due to factory restrictions derived from the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, Australian vehicle arrivals have been delayed, with van models arriving around the same time of passenger vehicles in the range, from November. Customers awaiting ordered vehicles have been notified.  

The T6.1 van and passenger vehicle ranges, like all Volkswagen, are offered with a five-year, unlimited kilometer warranty, capped price servicing every calendar year, and the additional option of pre-purchased three or five-year Service Care Packs.

Pricing and specification information for the full T6.1 range will be announced at the end of July.
