Do you know what Volkswagen means? It means ‘people’s car’ in German. The German automobile manufacturer is an admirable name in the auto industry since the time of Hitler. Volkswagen was originally found by the Nazi trade union in 1937, as a company that produced affordable cars for the public.
Today, the group has grown very big and has many big names under its umbrella. The big names include Audi, Lamborghini, Porsche, Bentley, and more. The name Volkswagen is synonymous with quality, value, safety and performance.
The company proclaims that it commits itself to product engineering and growth. Germans have proved their expertise in craftsmanship and technological skills.
Volkswagen has a history with a reason.
In the early 1930s, Germany did not have any affordable cars for the common man. Those were the times when the car was nothing more than a luxurious dream for the common man.
This was the time that witnessed the beginning of small ventures like people’s car. During the inception of many such projects, Adolf Hitler got involved and proclaimed his opinions.
He called in for the manufacture of cars that could house 2 adults, 3 children and capable of achieving a speed of 62 mph.
He also introduced certain savings scheme by which people can buy the cars on a monthly installment basis. Soon, Germany went through the world war, and many other fights.
Though the vision, manufacture concepts and designs changed with each party in power in Germany, Volkswagen lived through the fight for existence and emerged as a stable company. Now, Volkswagen stands tall and makes the German engineering sector proud.
The design speaks of laser seam welding and carefully crafted interior, with minute detailing on the parts, and a strong, well-built, beautiful exterior. Volkswagen uses soft touch material for the interiors that will keep the passengers at a good comfort level. This is their promise of quality.
The performance cars deliver good performance. They are fast, and distribute power to the wheels using traction control systems.
They value your money.
The name ‘Volkswagen’ meaning ‘people’s car’ stands for that promise. Volkswagen also uses fuel efficient technologies.
Volkswagen provides many features for safety. The features include hydraulic brake assist, electronic stability control, anti-slip regulation, crash optimized front end, etcetera. After all, safety has to be a concern always.
