The legend is true - the Volkswagen was Hitler's idea. Literally translating as 'the People's Car', Volkswagen was the brainchild of Ferdinand Porsche, who was asked to create a car for the masses by the then Chancellor Hitler in 1934. In the early 1930s, German automobile manufacturing focused mainly on luxury cars, and affordable cars for the masses was seen as a priority by the Reich, who intended to make Germany one of the most technological advanced countries in the world. Porsche took up the challenge.
The remit was to design a car that could carry two adults and three children at 100km/h (62mph) that was fuel efficient, reliable and cheap to produce. The result was the Beetle - still considered to be one of the most influential design icons of the 20th Century.
Volkswagen survived the war, coming under British control in 1945. The plan was to dismantle the factory and ship it to the UK. Luckily for VW, no British manufacturer was interested in taking on the project, considering the car as 'unattractive to the average buyer', that it 'didn't meet the fundamental technical requirement of a motor car' and even that building the car commercially would be a 'completely uneconomic enterprise'. How wrong they were...
From 1948, VW became a very important element, both symbolically and economically, of the regeneration of West Germany. The company concentrated on innovation and build quality, and it is this that still holds true today. Volkswagen is now focusing on efficiency, developing hybrid concepts and building a reputation for innovative thinking in engine development, particularly diesel engines. VW developed Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) technology for diesel engines but sees the future as hybrid. Their rear engine up! concept is set to go into production in 2011, and VW were key in developing the BlueMotion low emissions technology.
