Naturally, we're very proud of our heritage - few car manufacturers have produced so many legendary cars as Volkswagen. The concept of the Volkswagen - the people's car - was created in 1934 by Ferdinand Porsche as an affordable and reliable means of transport for everyone. Since those early days the company has developed to become a major global force in car manufacturing. We think the best way to honour our past is to invest in the future. Which is why you'll find Volkswagen at the forefront of pioneering developments in design, technology and environmental initiatives.
