The history of the Volkswagen corporation dates back to 1937. The name of the company translates to “people’s car” in German. The marque is considered to be the flagship of the Volkswagen Group, which was the largest automaker group in both 2016 and 2017 by sales. Initially, sales of Volkswagen vehicles were slower in the United States for a few reasons, including the smaller size of the cars and unusual shapes. A landmark campaign was launched in 1959 where a vehicle was introduced as the “Beetle” and the size was marketed as an advantage to consumers. For many years after, the VW was one of the top-selling auto imports in the United States. The Beetle surpassed the production record of 15 million vehicles twelve years later.
