Volkswagen unveils limited edition California Berghaus

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 20, 2011

Consumers’ needs vary with the change in seasons. What Volkswagen UK recommends is its limited edition Berghaus model that had been added to the California lineup. Volkswagen designed the California Berghaus for consumers who love to explore the outdoors with a ton of comfort and with style too. The limited edition Berghaus model comes with all the comfort that standard California models have to offer.

This four-seater has been equipped with an electrically-operated pop-up roof, a fully-functioning integrated kitchen in the rear living space including a fridge and gas-powered cooker as well as a fold-away table and chairs.

It gets a long list of equipment as standard but the California now also gets a bike rack, side-mounted awning, 18-inch bi-color ‘Dakar’ alloy wheels, metallic paint, Berghaus-branded carpet mats and waterproof seat covers and Berghaus badging.

All these models are powered by a 2.0-liter BiTDI 180 engine and a six-speed manual transmission. When combined, the vehicle could return 36.2 mpg on the combined cycle with a CO2 emissions rating of 205 g/km. Sprinting from zero to 62 mph takes 12.4 seconds.

All the California models come with an extensive range of safety devices such as anti-lock brakes (ABS), traction control (TCS), engine braking control (EBC) and Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP). The Berghaus model is the first ever special edition California. It costs £47,995 on the road (inclusive of VAT).

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.
