Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is celebrating the production of the 100,000 California camper van at its Hannover-Limmer site in Germany.
The milestone vehicle was a California Ocean (2.0 TSI) with 4MOTION, 7-speed DSG, two-tone Candy White/Starlight Blue Metallic paintwork with matching dark blue pop-up roof sides and awning, cycle rack, navigation system, kitchen units and wood-effect flooring.
The story of the most successful mobile home in its class began 30 years ago. Originally developed jointly with Westfalia, it was based on the third generation VW Transporter and initially produced in Rheda-Wiedenbrück until 2004.
More than 160,000 units have been produced in total – 100,000 of them in Hannover-Limmer since 2004
“We could hardly write or continue this story of a legend’s success in any better way: because 100,000 vehicles also mean 100,000 customers living their dream of independence, travel and enjoyment with the California,” said Dr Eckhard Scholz, Chairman of the Brand Board of Management of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.
“The California is justifiably an icon among camping and leisure vehicles, the most popular and best-selling mobile home of its kind.”
