Volkswagen was born in 1937 of a desire to create a vehicle that could bring German engineering to the masses – the ‘People’s Car’ – and this is a position that we have maintained to this day.
The company hit the open road in Australia in 1953 with the arrival of the very first Beetle. Since then we’ve clocked up a lot of Ks and passed many milestones - from the Passat winning Wheels Magazine car of the year way back in 1974, through launching the new-look Beetle in 2000 and on to selling more than 600,000 vehicles right across the country.
Volkswagen is proud of its history in Australia and is focused on developing new models, services and technologies to help Australians enjoy their driving experience. It’s fair to say we’re far from reaching the end of the road.
