Thread: Volkswagen teams up with Berghaus on special edition California camper van

  1. #1

    Post Volkswagen teams up with Berghaus on special edition California camper van

    Filed under: Minivan/Van, Europe, Volkswagen, UK, Design/Style


    Volkswagen has a rich heritage when it comes to camper vans. But while the German automaker may only offer the Chrysler-built Routan in North America, overseas, it tends to that heritage quite closely, and for its latest model, Wolfsburg has partnered with outdoor outfitter Berghaus for the special edition you see here.

    Spun off the Transporter's California line (which somewhat ironically isn't offered in its namesake or any other state in the union), the Berghaus edition packs all the regular features of the standard model and upgrades with some unique touches. That means four seats, an electrically-operated pop-up roof, onboard kitchen and folding dinette. What distinguishes the Berghaus edition, however, is its long list of extra equipment, including a bike rack, folding awning, 18-inch alloys and special badging both inside and out.

    It also comes with a special rucksack, a pair of sleeping bags, gloves, hats, mugs, water bottle, flask and more. All that kit is driven by a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel and six-speed manual transmission with ABS, traction control, engine braking and stability management. Only 80 examples will be offered in the UK (no word on further distribution in other markets), and you can scope out the full details in the press release after the jump.Continue reading Volkswagen teams up with Berghaus on special edition California camper van

    EXPLORE THE GREAT OUTDOORS IN STYLE WITH THE NEW CALIFORNIA BERGHAUS

    As the weather starts to take a turn for the worse and those long summer nights and festivals seem a distant memory, it needn't be just hardcore campers who can still enjoy the great outdoors as Volkswagen adds the limited edition Berghaus to the versatile California range.

    Created in collaboration with the outdoor clothing specialist, the California Berghaus has been specially developed to be the ultimate vehicle for exploring and enjoying the outdoors in comfort and style.

    The limited edition Berghaus model boasts all of the creature comforts that standard California models offer, including seating and accommodation for four, thanks to an electrically-operated pop-up roof, a fully-functioning integrated kitchen in the rear living space including a fridge and gas-powered cooker, and fold-away table and chairs.

    In addition to the extensive list of equipment fitted as standard, the newest addition to the California range also features a bike rack, side-mounted awning, 18-inch bi-colour 'Dakar' alloy wheels, metallic paint, Berghaus-branded carpet mats and waterproof seat covers and Berghaus badging.

    Each vehicle also comes with an exclusive 'Berghaus pack' to prepare customers for exploring the outdoors in style. The pack includes a Berghaus 'Freeflow 25' rucksack, two 'Flare' sleeping bags, gloves, hats, insulated mugs, a travel water bottle, a flask and a map case. All that's missing is the Kendal mint cake!

    All Berghaus models are fitted with the familiar 2.0-litre BiTDI 180 PS engine and six-speed manual transmission, which returns 36.2 mpg on the combined cycle with CO2 emissions of 205 g/km. Acceleration from standstill to 62 mph takes 12.4 seconds while the top speed is 117 mph.

    As you would expect from Volkswagen, all California models are equipped with an extensive range of safety systems including anti-lock brakes (ABS), traction control (TCS), engine braking control (EBC) and Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP).

    Priced at £47,995 on the road (including VAT), the Berghaus model is the first ever special edition California, and exclusivity and desirability are guaranteed on the campsite with a total of only 80 being produced.
