Volkswagen

Volkswagen is one of the undisputed titans of the automotive industry. It’s the best-selling brand in the Volkswagen Group, which also includes Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, SEAT and Skoda.

It has one of the most comprehensive ranges of cars, commercial vehicles and dealerships in the UK. The VW stable includes the up!, iconic Beetle, Polo, Golf, Jetta, Passat, Scirocco, Touran, Sharan, Tiguan, Touareg, Phaeton, Caravelle and California motorhome.

Volkswagen can trace its roots right back to 1937. The firm was charged with building an affordable ‘Peoples’ Car’ in an effort to mobilise the masses in Germany. During the Second World War the firm switched to building arms, but switched back to cars after British Major Ivan Hirst took charge on behalf of the British Government after the war ended. 

In 1950 the firm expanded production to two vehicles with the introduction of the incredibly popular Type 2, which became known as the ‘Bully’, or Volkswagen Bus. Fast forward to 1973 and the Passat became the first of the new wave of Volkswagens. A year later the first Golf was built, with the iconic Golf GTi following in 1976.
