THE VOLKSWAGEN COMMERCIAL VEHICLES PAVILION
Please note that the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Pavilion will be closed on December 1st due to an internal event. We ask for your understanding!
Powerful, rugged and functional - the perfect description of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. And the brand pavilion, which concludes the Autostadt's park landscape towards the south-east, precisely embodies these characteristics in its design. Inside you will find current vehicles, concept vehicles and digital exhibitions, particularly focusing on the themes of future and freedom. You will also find many attractions to experience and participate in.
CAMPER OF THE FUTURE: THE CALIFORNIA CONCEPT STUDY
So many old-school VW van owners have been yearning for it, and here it is in all its glory: the California CONCEPT study. The latest blue and white van could become your fully fitted motorhome from home for almost any kind of adventure. Based on the long-wheelbase Multivan, this is also the first California CONCEPT to come with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain. The versatile interior fittings give you more space with plenty of drawers and cupboard systems. One new feature is two-sided access, which will prove indispensable for a multitude of situations. The additional driver’s side sliding door and completely redesigned kitchenette provide a variety of opportunities for cooking al fresco. The van also comes with a compact barbecue normally stowed away in the kitchenette for easy removal from outside the vehicle. Whether you’re taking a short weekend out, a road trip for the next few weeks, or you’re planning to get away from it all for months – we think you’ll find this new edition with its clever design will take you to any destination in comfort.
On the highlight area on the ground floor of the pavilion we are currently showing you an Amarok Aventura (fuel consumption in l/100 km: combined 10.4 - 10.2; CO2 emissions in g/km: combined 272 - 266) in Mid Blue Metallic marks the top in the premium segment of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.
A few meters further you can explore a Multivan e-Hybrid (combined fuel consumption 8.8 - 9.8 l/100km, CO2 emissions 199 - 221g/km) in candy white with a black roof and you can take a closer look at ID. Buzz Pro (combined power consumption: 20.9 kWh/100 km and combined CO₂ emissions: 0 g/km). If you need more space in your vehicle, the Grand California 680 (combined fuel consumption: 10.8 l/100km and combined CO₂ emissions: 283 g/km) is ideal. Take a look, we'd be happy to show you the interior.
If you are looking for a modern commercial van with an electric drive that is suitable for long distances and has sufficient cargo space, you will find what you are looking for in our “Future Lounge” in the pavilion. There is an ID there. Buzz Cargo (electricity consumption in kWh/100 km: combined 22.5–20.3; CO2 emissions in g/km: combined 0) in Candy White / Starlight Blue metallic.
When you come up the stairs, you will meet potential travel companions for your next road trip in our lifestyle area: including a California Ocean in Fortana Red Metallic, a Caddy California in Costa Azul Metallic and - to reminisce about - a T2 Camper - an original from a music legend Pete Townshend, music pioneer and guitarist of the band The Who.
120° photo shoot opportunity
Drop by the Pavilion and have your photograph taken in a current model with a 120-degree photo shooter, just like in a professional photography studio. You are welcome to take a printout of the photo home with you as a souvenir.
Response Test with Brake Assist
Visitors to the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Pavilion can now learn all about the brake assist system, one of the many driver assist systems in our vehicles. The aim of the response test is to brake as quickly as possible. To participate, simply take a seat in front of two LED bars, which each have a round LED dot on top, and put your hands on the steering wheel and your feet on the accelerator and brake pedals. When you press the accelerator pedal, the LED bar fills up and the round LEDs light up green. As soon as they change to red, apply the brakes as quickly as possible. Your response time is measured and compared with the response time of the brake assist system. Who is faster – you or the brake assist?
The vehicle only have consumption and emission values according to WLTP and not according to NEDC.
Further information on official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the “Guide on the fuel economy, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new passenger car models”, which is available free of charge at all sales dealerships and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, D-73760 Ostfildern, Germany and at www.dat.de.
