With many summer holidays this year expecting to take place on home soil owing to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is offering a special deal on its flagship Grand California motorhome.

The new Grand California, which is usually priced from £72,745 is currently available with free factory options worth up to £2,000, a deal which will last until the end of the year.

As well as free options, Volkswagen is also adding four free services, a four-year extended warranty and roadside assistance cover into the mix as well.

Standard features on the Grand California include a fully-fitted kitchen, panoramic skylights, and a separate wet room with toilet, sink and shower.

Two different version are available: The 600, which comes with the option of an overcab bed to sleep a total of four, or the 680 which has a longer double bed and overhead storage.

Volkswagen says that interest in the Grand California has doubled since Britain has been in lockdown, and the van can be purchased bought on a Solutions Personal Contract Plan (PCP) with nothing to pay for the first three months with 3.5 percent APR Representative. Other finance options are available, including a 10 year hire purchase plan.
