About Volkswagen

Volkswagen is a German make of car founded in 1937 by the German Labour Front under the auspices of the Nazi party.  The name ‘Volkswagen’ literally means ‘people’s car’ in German.  Volkswagen was the largest carmaker in both 2016 and 2017 based on worldwide sales with the Chinese market accounting for 40% of cars sold.

The Third Reich and Hitler in particular had been keen to create a basic vehicle that could accommodate two adults and three children and at an affordable price.  State sponsorship ensued with a new state-owned factory using a design by Ferdinand Porsche with some modifications suggested by Hitler himself.  The initiative would have failed without government support as it was just not economically viable to produce the car with such a low return on price.  The stigma of slave labour used in the VW factory, harvested from a local concentration camp, has stayed with Volkswagen for decades.

After the Second World War, the factory site was located in the British occupation zone and was saved by a British Army officer, and by 1946, the VW factory was producing 1,000 cars a month, quite remarkable considering that when it rained, production had to stop due to the damage to the roof and windows.  After the war, German car production was only allowed to continue at a rate of 10% of its pre-war output but no other motor manufacturer internationally was interested in taking on this visible prop of the German regime, pronouncing the car ugly, noisy, and not commercial.

Volkswagen turned the tables on all its doubters, quickly becoming an icon of West German regeneration.  They were found in the UK in small numbers quite early on during the post-war years as British soldiers brought them home from the front.  By the 1960s, sales were booming with slick advertising campaigns from an American agency – the adverts were as popular as the car which retained its appeal even as the Beetle style became outdated.  In 1972, VW was able to claim the world production record for one single make of car.

Famous for the iconic VW Beetle, Volkswagen is also well-known for the Golf, Jetta, Polo, Passat, Tiguan, and the Camper van.  Committed to producing at least 30 EV models by 2025, this German brand still scores highly for reliability and style.
