Volkswagen Group, commonly known as Volkswagen AG, is a prominent German automotive manufacturer that was established in 1937 by the German government to mass-produce a low-cost "people's car." Wolfsburg, Germany is home to the company's headquarters.
The company was formerly run by the Nazi-affiliated German Labour Front (Deutsche Arbeitsfront).
In 1950, the firm released the Transporter van, and in 1955, the Karmann Ghia coupe. Sales in most export nations were high, but sales in the United States were initially sluggish due to the car's tiny size, odd rounded look, and historical ties to Nazi Germany.
However, as the 1950s proceeded, the automobile began to gain favour in the United States, and Volkswagen of America was founded in 1955. In 1959, the company engaged the American advertising firm Doyle Dane Bernbach to represent it, and the result was a historic advertising campaign that helped popularise the automobile as the "Beetle" and marketed its size and unusual appearance as an advantage to the customer.
