Volkswagen is a German automobile manufacturer based in Wolfsburg, Lower Saxony (Germany). Volkswagen is the original and best-selling of the Volkswagen Group, the largest German automobile manufacturer and the second largest producer of automobiles in the world.
Volkswagen also owns the brands Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Ducati, Lamborghini, Porsche, SEAT and Skoda, as well as manufacturer of trucks Scania and MAN.
Volkswagen is German for 'car of the people'. International the company slogan was "Das Auto" ('the car'), although due to the scandal of emissions it sought to change its slogan to something more humble and less pretentious, so at the beginning of the 2016 slogan was changed simply to "Volkswagen".

Volkswagen has three cars on the list of 10 best-selling car of all time, namely: Golf, beetle and Passat. This information can be found on the website called 24/7 Wall St. With these three cars Volkswagen has more cars on the list of those who continue to produce than any other manufacturer.
The Volkswagen name is that the project to build a car that would be accessible to a large number of people emerged in Germany in the 1930's. When Adolf Hitler rose to power in 1933, decided to implement a plan of promotion of the automobile industry, with the aim of relaunching its factories and make them more competitive against the English and the French. Thus was launched a contest to entrepreneurs for the manufacture of so-called 'village auto' grant (Volkswagen). Ferdinand Porsche was commissioned to carry out the project whose purpose was to build a simple and cheap vehicle that could be within the reach of the majority of Germans.
Hitler wanted to build the biggest factory in Europe for the manufacturing of the car of the people. To do so, the requirement was to have access to a navigable waterway. An own power station, which caters to both the factory and the new town was also necessary. Hitler chose the village of Fallersleben, on the banks of the Mittelland canal. The place is part from the 14th century Schloss Wolfsburg County, owned by count von Schulenburg. According to the ideas of Hitler, the factory should have their own city annexed thereto, to house workers and their families.
The name chosen by Hitler to the automobile was Kdf-Wagen (Kraft durch Freude: 'strength through Joy') and the city, Kdf-Stadt. However, nor in the factory or in whole Germany nobody used another name that was not that of Volkswagen to refer to the beetle. The Kdf-Wagen name only was used in catalogues and Nazi military. The "beetle", "Beetle" or "Käfer", was the first Volkswagen. Ferdinand Porsche made the plans and designs of the car, but was the own Hitler who polished, upgraded headlights front, rear and adding a side Rod giving it a more sporty.
The nazi party Ferdinand Porsche provided the necessary infrastructure for the construction of which would be later the factory responsible for the project. For the realization of this project, the new city was founded, Stadt des KdF-Wagens bei Fallersleben, on May 26, 1938. The ceremony of this important event for the nazi regime, sought clearly to impress the German people, a people which was entrusted with its leader. More than 70,000 people from all corners of Germany attended the ceremony. Logically, Ferdinand Porsche was present, along with the General nazis and footballer Führer. At the ceremony, Hitler came on Board of a convertible Kdf-Wagen, led by Ferdinand Porsche.
Second World War
For the purpose of funding throughout this project give the German people of a low-cost car, the German Government devised a system in which savers eager to own a Volkswagen (car of the people), troop 5 marcos weekly. Thus gathered around 286 million marks. None of these people received the Kdf-Wagen, since military projects monopolized the attention of the country after the start of the second world war in September 1939. Fallersleben factory went to producing military, and after 6 years of war, the money of the Kdf-Wagen was requisitioned by the Russians as war reparations.
Hitler never came to see your Kdf-Wagen leave production lines. With the end of the war, Ferdinand Porsche was imprisoned for his links with the nazi regime and the English took control of the factory. On 27 December began the mass production of the beetle.
Since the 1950s
Although his first steps began before the second world war, it was not until the 1950s when the beetle becomes one vehicle of high social acceptance in Europe as America. The one-millionth copy left the factory in 1955, and in 1972 beetle, as it was already known around the world, broke the record of units manufactured from a car, which Ford held its "T" model, to reach the figure of 15.007.034 Volkswagen manufactured.
In 1978 the beetle ceased manufacture in Germany to lower demand in the majority of countries, that had appeared in the world market car equivalent, but much more current design and technology. He continued to produce, however, in Brazil continued its production until 1985, by putting in that country by presidential mandate in 1993, commercial was in 1996. In Mexico the Volkswagen Sedan production continued uninterrupted until 30 June 2003 when occurs the last Volkswagen Sedan last edition, which carried distinctive equipment. The last unit produced is in the Volkswagen Museum in Wolfsburg, and another one of these coveted copies was given to Pope Juan Pablo II by a group of dealers of the brand in Mexico.
At the end of the last century, the Volkswagen Sedan (beetle) was considered 'the car of the century'.
After long closed years in the production of their archaic models of rear with opposed cylinders and air cooled motor, Volkswagen, fortunately, recovered the thread in the evolution of their cars, and after the absorption of Auto Union, and former constructor of NSU Motorenwerke automobiles in 1969, based on inherited this latest brand technology, could be at the height of the rest of builders, and develop their own models with traction and front four cylinder in-line engines and water cooled.
After the initial Volkswagen K70 (powered entirely by NSU), and Volkswagen Passat, Golf, which adopted the same mechanical configuration as the advanced Fiat 127, regarded at the time as the coche-patron in its segment, and that was the model most it presented in 1974 sold in Europe for many years. Thanks to this injection of technology, Volkswagen was step by step to expand its range of models, abandoning its previous policy of obsolete single model. Thus it was incorporating firstly the Passat in 1973, slightly earlier than the sporty Scirocco, and then smaller model Polo and Golf. The New Beetle, which offers a design based in the old beetle, but completely modernised, as well as the technology appears in 1998. This car is mainly destined for the U.S. market, where there is still a large number of nostalgic for the beetle. The appearance of this model, coupled with a decline in demand also in Latin American countries, leading in 2003 at the end of the production of the classic Vocho in Mexico. Previously they have been leaving other new models, such as the Phaeton, flagship of the brand, the Sharan, Touran, a seven-seater minivan, and the Touareg, a 4 x 4 luxury for use in city, highway and in difficult terrain.
In 2002 the number of employees was 325000. Also in 2002, and after 28 years of production, the Golf surpassed in sales to the legendary beetle.
In the year 2012 Volkswagen delivered 5.738.000 vehicles, so that its global market share reached 12.8%.
In September 2015 came to light that Volkswagen had illegally installed a software to change the results of the technical controls of emissions by 11 million diesel-engined cars, sold between 2009 and 2015. As a result of this fraud, its engines had successfully drawn the United States (EPA) environmental protection agency standards. Involved vehicles emit up to 40 times the legal limit of nitrogen oxides.
Volkswagen factory in Dresden.
The Group has 45 factories in 20 countries: Germany, Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, China, Spain, Slovakia, United States, France, Hungary, India, Italy, Israel, Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Russia, and South Africa, and is present in 150 countries with own trade organizations.
Wolfsburg is currently the principal seat of the Volkswagen Group. The coat of arms of the city (which, between 1951 and 1963, would appear in the versions of the Volkswagen export), was designed by a cartoonist named Kern. It made up the figure of the traditional castle with two towers and liftgate with a stylized Wolf in the battlements. At its apex a few wavy lines symbolize the Mittellandkanal.
Volkswagen has built in recent years in Dresden a completely new factory, glass, allowing visitors to see in detail throughout the manufacturing process. Wolfsburg has built the automobile city, a complex of buildings intended for the public, who can see exhibitions about the history of the company and the automotive world, and in which buyers may collect personally their cars Volkswagen.
In 1994 VW dodged the crisis due to a decline in demand by applying a model in which employees agreed with employers to reduce working hours and pay by 20%. The immediate result was that they were able to save close to 20 000 jobs. However in recent years the measure has been counterproductive.
At the moment, Volkswagen announced that it will buy 19.9 percent of shares in the Japanese Suzuki amounting to 1,700 million euros (around 2,500 million dollars), with what will significantly strengthen its position in Asia.16

In 1974 Volkswagen paid a fine of $120,000 to settle a complaint filed by the protection of the Environment Agency on the use of so-called "manipulation devices" to certain disabled pollution control systems. The complaint said that the use of the devices violated the Clean Air Act.
Volkswagen has implemented seven environmental objectives in the technical development in 1996 for the first time. The plan contains topics related to the protection of the climate, conservation and health care, through goals such as the reduction of greenhouse emissions and fuel consumption, allowing the use of fuels alternative, and avoid the use of hazardous materials. The original goals since 1996 have been revised in 2002 and 2007. Volkswagen was the first car manufacturer to apply ISO 14000 standard, during its development phase and be re-certified under the standards in September 2005. In 2011, Greenpeace began to criticize Volkswagen opposition to legislation that calls for stricter controls on emissions of CO 2 {\displaystyle {\ce {CO2}}} {\displaystyle {\ce {CO2}}} and energy efficiency, and an advertising campaign was launched parodying the recent series of VW commercials based on Star Wars.2021
