In 1934, Adolf Hitler planned to provide every German family motorized vehicles and hired avtokonstruktora Ferdinand Porsche to create a "people's car", which is well named - Volkswagen. He was supposed to carry a family of five at a speed of 100 km / h, while also saving for every liter of gasoline 13, 6 km, as well as being low in maintenance and parts replacement.

May 26, 1938 Hitler personally laid the foundation stone in the construction of the plant in Wolfsburg for the mass production of cars, but during the Second World War, it made military vehicles. After the war, in 1945, British Army Major Yvan Hearst was instructed to take over the management of the factory bombed. He persuaded the British troops ordered 20,000 cars, and soon the plant was already producing 1000 cars a month. Then Volkswagen came to be called "Beetles" for their rounded appearance. In subsequent decades, the production of "Zhukov" grew rapidly. They have become one of the most popular and recognizable cars in the world. In 2003, when the last "Beetle" off the line, they produced more than 21, 5 million.

These photos demonstrate the effectiveness of the production process, due to which "Beetles" have appeared on the streets all over the world. This is the time when the company has been at the height of his reputation, well before the recent scandal over the falsification of data on emissions of harmful substances.
