Legacy of VW T2 camper van continues with California campers

Article by Anita Panait, on October 1, 2013

With the production of the iconic Volkswagen T2 camper van scheduled to end in Brazil later this year, its spirit will sure live on with the latest generation of Volkswagen campers – the California SE and California Beach. The rear-engined Volkswagen T2 camper van joined the carmaker’s Transporter line-up in 1951, but only rose to fame almost a decade after when the free-spirited generation of the 1960s was quick to adopt it.

It quickly became a cult symbol of an alternative lifestyle – becoming an epitome of independent travel. The Volkswagen California – available in SE and Beach versions – is inspired by the Volkswagen T2 camper van but is built to cater to the needs and wants of today’s consumers.

It also boasts of a sophisticated design to provide new levels of comfort, performance and safety – primarily thanks to its purpose-built design and superb engineering.

The latest evolution of the Volkswagen T2 camper van still embodies freedom and adventure that had been the secret to the iconic success of the original van.

The Volkswagen California SE and the Volkswagen California Beach still retain the appealing nature of the original camper van – giving freedom on the open road whenever one goes out with family or friends wherever they want. Campers could really enjoy travelling to their chosen destinations without worrying where to relax, eat and sleep. [source: Volkswagen]
