Buyers can get the RV in seven colours, and four of them are two-tone combinations. An awning is among the standard equipment on the outside.
Inside, the rear seats fold into a double bed. The front seats can become a smaller daybed. Camping in Australia can get hot, so the Kampervan has an air conditioner and two fans. If things get too chilly, there's a diesel heater.
The pictures show the Kampervan with a modern-looking cabin. The walls, ceiling, and cabinetry are white. The rear bed is very light grey. The floor has a light shade of wood finish. With the pale colour scheme, if you spill anything, it's going to be easy to see.
The kitchen consists of a two-burner gas stove, microwave, and a refrigerator. There is a full bathroom with a toilet and shower. VW isn't yet specifying the size of the water containers
For entertainment, there's a television and a Wi-Fi extender. The Kampervan has a lithium house battery and solar system for providing electricity. There are no specifications about this system at this time.
Power comes from a 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel making 174 bhp (130 kilowatts) and 302 pound-feet (410 Newton-metres) of torque, according to the Australian site Car Expert. The Kampervan comes standard with VW's 4Motion all-wheel-drive system.
VW is only taking reservations for the Kampervan in Australia at this time. Pricing isn't yet available.
