Volkswagen Company Description:

Volkswagen, or VW, is an automobile manufacturer based in Wolfsburg, Germany. It forms the core of Volkswagen Group and is the world's fourth largest car producer after GM, Toyota, and Ford, respectively. The name means "people's car" in German. Adolf Hitler had a keen interest in cars even though he did not drive. In 1933, he asked Ferdinand Porsche to make changes to his original 1931 design to make it more suited for the working man. Hans Ledwinka discussed his ideas with Ferdinand Porsche who used many Tatra design features in the 1938 Kdf-Wagen, later known as the VW Käfer - or Beetle. Volkswagen began introducing an array of new models after Bernd Pischetsrieder became Volkswagen Group CEO in 2002. Volkswagen has always been a leader in safety since founded in 1937.
