Volkswagen translates as “people’s car” in German, and the name traces its roots back to the German Labour Front in 1930. At this time, the German market was dominated by luxury cars that the average worker couldn’t afford—meaning that only one out of every 50 citizens actually owned an automobile. The German Labour Front set out to change this and, four years after the end of WWII, the iconic and enduring bubble shaped Sedan made it across the Atlantic and landed on US shores—a car closely associated with the much loved VW Beetle, using many similar VW parts.
During the ‘50s, sales of Volkswagen cars soared, and, alongside other models such as the Type 2 (Camper Van) and the Karmann Ghia, the Beetle would dominate both European and American markets—eventually surpassing the Ford T Model to become the most produced car in history. In fact, by 1973 the VW Beetle had sold in excess of 16 million units, however, the company itself was beginning to falter in the face of the disappointing sales of the newly introduced Type 3 and Type 4 models, and the declining popularity of the now aging Beetle.
Thankfully, in part due to a long standing partnership with Audi/Auto Union, Volkswagen began to design the fourth generation of VW cars—with Audi’s expertise in front-wheel drive and water-cooled engines at the fore. Beginning in 1973, Volkswagen introduced the Passat (Dasher in the US), which was then followed by the Scirocco and Golf in 1974, and finally the Polo in 1975. Each of these cars shared a number of defining features, as well as common VW parts and engines.
At the close of the 20th century, the VW Beetle was reimagined and redesigned, becoming an instant hit. This, along with the Jetta, the Up!, and the Tiguan, helped “Das Auto” grow into the 21st century, becoming Europe’s largest automotive manufacture, and second in the world only to Toyota. Headquartered in Wolfsburg, Germany, where both cars and VW parts are still produced, Volkswagen now also operates manufacturing plants all over the world, employing more than 190,000 people across all departments.
