Extra Impressive

A whole world in the kitchen

Bacon butties, home-cooked steak or a kiwi classic fish and chips: In the California 6.1 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 6.1 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 6.1 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.

Just right. For the town and beach.

The California 6.1 is perfect for a road trip to the coast. And for shopping in the urban jungle. Thanks to its compact dimensions and passenger car-like handling, it’s truly the right companion and entertainer: with the digital cockpit, you can use the touch display of the Infotainment systems and the leather-covered multifunction steering wheel to call up the perfect holiday soundtrack. And the “Discover Pro” navigation systems always guides you to your next dream destination.

More comfort, more connectivity

The California 6.1 makes your journey as comfortable as possible with intelligent mobile online services and next-generation infotainment systems. The new infotainment systems are fully touchscreen and feature redesigned graphics.

Carefully planned right down to the smallest detail


Be it sporty, convenient or efficient: with the engine/gearbox combination and chassis settings in the California 6.1, there is no need to limit your freedom.


The hint of a legend: the California 6.1’s modern design features countless chrome elements that evoke memories of its world famous ancestor, the T1 camper van.


It has never been easier to bring your travel plans to life: The California 6.1’s interior is multi-functional, giving you the maximum comfort.

Operating Equipment

The smarter way to chauffeur: Thanks to the digital cockpit and We Connect, you always have the information you need at your fingertips – professionally and privately.

Driver Assistance Systems

The driver assistance systems in the California 6.1 are mostly like a close group of friends: they make life easier and are ready to provide support when you need it.

Discover Media Pro

Make the most of the Discover Media’s large touchscreen and connectivity to stay informed on the road. The 2D/2.5D navigation comes with maps displaying a range of useful information such as points of interest and speed limits. To help you avoid congestion, this system even offers you three routes – fast, short and eco-friendly – using live traffic updates.

  • 9.2″ colour touchscreen with proximity sensor
  • Two USB type C ports

Multi-leather function steering wheel

As well as offering grip and comfort for hours at the wheel, the multi-function leather steering wheel gives you fingertip control of functions including the radio and cruise control.

Always there for you

Be prepared for almost anything with the safety systems in the California 6.1. The driving systems can safely intervene, helping to reduce the risk of accidents on the road.

Driving Steering Recommendation

Newly launched and standard across the T6.1 range, Driver Steering Recommendation gives the driver suggested inputs to help stabilise the vehicle. The system also intervenes using gentle adjustments if it recognises oversteer when cornering.

Crosswind Assist

As part of the Electronic Stabilisation System (ESP), this applies the brakes if the vehicle encounters a strong crosswind. Standard across the T6.1 range, this feature is activated automatically when travelling above km/h.

Lane Assist

Available as standard, Lane Assist counter-steers the vehicle if the driver unintentionally drifts from a lane. The system also emits audible and visual warnings via the multi-function display to alert the driver of danger.

Park Assist

This standard feature aids positioning into parking spaces. When reverse gear is engaged, the vehicle automatically assumes control of the steering. All the driver has to do is operate the clutch, accelerator and brake.

Side Protection

Available as standard, Side Protection alerts you with visual and audible warnings if you’re getting too close to other vehicles, pillars, walls or pedestrians.

Adaptive Cruise Control

The standard Adaptive Cruise Control ACC automatically adapts your speed to that of the vehicle driving in front and maintains the distance set by the drive – remaining within the set speed.
