Volkswagen reveal images of new Camper
Volkswagen has revealed the first images and details of their new Mini-camper, based on the all-new fifth generation Caddy and boasting a host of new features. One example is the entirely new bed concept that has been redeveloped to offer greater versatility. Technology in the compact camper van is definitely state-of-the-art. And a touch of cool is also included, with the panoramic glass roof offering a view of the night sky.
Since 2005, Volkswagen has been selling a compact mobile home based on the Caddy as a standard production model. The small brother of the California is an all- rounder, intended for all who seek maximum flexibility from their car, so that they can embark on the occasional spontaneous micro-adventure.
One of the new highlights is the opportunity to gaze at the stars through the 1.4m3 panoramic glass roof before dozing off. Those who prefer to sleep in the dark or wish to avoid being woken by the sun in the morning can of course also darken all of the windows, including the glass roof. Ensuring comfort while sleeping on the almost two-metre-long bed.
Cleverly stowed in the rear are lightweight camping chairs and table from the California models. Two practical storage bags can also be taken inside the home for easy loading. They also serve as privacy screens inside the vehicle when fastened in the rear window sections.
The Caddy’s four-cylinder engines are also new. They are from the next stage of engine evolution, fulfil the 2021 Euro 6 emissions standards and are all fitted with particulate filters. Also being used for the first time in the TDI units – which have power outputs between 55kW / 75 PS and 90 kW / 122 PS.
The world premiere of the new compact camper is set to take place at the beginning of September.
