Volkswagen (VW) is one of the world's largest car makers and owns a variety of other brands such as Audi and SEAT. Its brand name literally means "people's car", and its origins are in National Socialist Germany, with the company having been founded in 1937. The original Volkswagen designer was Ferdinand Porsche, ironic given that the modern Porsche company had a controlling interest in Volkswagen, which was reversed in 2010.
In the immediate post war period, despite the German factory's state of disrepair, production in 1946 reached one thousand cars per month. Demobilising soldiers returning home sometimes took their VW's with them and the brand quickly became popular in the UK. The success of VW seemed unstoppable and models such as the Beetle and Kombi became archetypal symbols of the 1960's social revolution. To this day the Kombi is still the most wanted car for men over 35.
The Golf and Passat have been huge global successes and in the 1990's the brand moved upmarket, developing a reputation for engineering excellence. The march of VW has been impressive and the brand is now at the pinnacle of the world car industry.
