VW in the beginning

Volkswagen was founded in 1937 by the Nazi movement to counter the limited availability of basic cars to the German public. Adolf Hitler demanded production of a ‘People’s Car’, which Volkswagen translate into from German. The ‘People’s Car’ would suit the needs of an average German family, two adults and three children and be offered at a reasonable price. The Third Reich even offered the public a saving scheme, which no competitor could offer. Hitler told the German people, “five marks a week you must put aside, if you want your own car to ride”, which around 336,000 people eventually paid into. These savings were eventually stolen by the Russians during its invasion of Berlin. Seizing on the opportunity, Adolf Hitler invited Ferdinand Porsche to the designing table who would go on to design the ‘People’s Car’, which would later develop into the Volkswagen Beetle.

The year of 2014 is set to take the Volkswagen group to the top of the worlds best selling car manufacturer charts. The Volkswagen brand have also put plans into place to expand the Volkswagen dealership network in India and also have plans to produce a number of models locally.

Volkswagen have released and plan to release a number of new models in 2014 with the Golf-R model set to be amongst the most successful. The Volkswagen Golf-R has been labelled as being the most powerful Volkswagen Golf to have ever been produced. Arguably the most iconic VW model to exist is the Beetle model and 2014 will be the year VW release a new cabriolet Beetle.

The SUV market has been amongst the most successful markets for the VW brand in the past 12 months and the brand and the group plan to further that success with a host of new additions. The new Cross Polo model is set to be the firms first crossover model whilst the T-Roc concept is also tipped to join the larger crossover market.
