Volkswagen, a German vehicle, was first being created in 1937 by the German ruler Adolf Hitler. His company if the vehicle was known as Gesellschaft zur Vorbereitung des Deutchen Volkswagen mbH, later on that same year they renamed the company as Volkswagen. Volkswagen was operated by the German Labor Front, a Nazi Organization, which was headquartering in Wolfsburg, Germany. Hitler’s mini-project develop rapidly creating a mass production with an affordable, fast vehicle. Volkswagen was sold for less than 1,000 Reich, which was about $140 at the time. Hitler made contact with the Austrian automobile engineer Ferdinand Porsche, after the KdF (Kraft-durch-Freude)-Wagen which means “Strenght-Through-Joy” car for the first time it was displayed ate the Berlin Motor Show in 1939. By that time World War II had begun and the Volkswagen production was stopped.
After the World War II was over the Volkswagen factory was ruined. The Allies would make the Volkswagen production the focus; their attempt was to revive the German auto industry. Volkswagen sales were make in United States but the selling slowly due to the Nazi connections and also its small size and unusual rounded shape. In 1959 an advertising agency, Doyle Dane Bernbach made a campaign introducing the car “Beetle.” As the years past Volkswagen became the top-selling auto import in the United States. Around 1960 the German government sold 60% of the Volkswagen stock, the Beetle became the worldwide production record of 15 million vehicles surpassing Ford, Model T.

Wow, good thing they changed the name. Imagine trying to write that name on a car, or even just pronouncing it as a foreigner! I didn't know Hitler was the creator of this car brand, in fact it comes as quite the shock. Great work!

Hitler is the creator of this car company. Nowadays the Volkswagon car company is very famous and very few people know who the inventor is.
