Volkswagen Transporter California Special Edition Announced

Germans love their Transporters, so much, in fact, that even VW which is a very conservative brand, makes some rather interesting special editions based on it. One of these is the California, a special edition which features a canvas top, not too dissimilar to that of the Multivan Edition 25.

Aside from the obvious (the roof), this T5 gets matte black trim pieces and black detailing, while inside we find the usual essential accessories for a vehicle like this, including stove, sink, a sleeping bag, and lots of practical storage spaces and cubbies. Powering the T5 California we find VW’s classic lineup of diesel engines, with power outputs ranging from 101 hp up to 180 hp, as well as two petrol engines that nobody will ever buy.

If you are interested in purchasing a T5 California, you will need to have €42,370 ($51,700) ready for the California Beach Edition and €56,290 ($68,600) if you want the more exclusive California Comfortile Edition. Expect it to go on sale in Europe this fall, after its official unveiling at the Caravan Salon in Dusseldorf, Germany, next month. A similar UK-only version was revealed last year.
