Volkswagen translated to English signifies ‘the people’s car’. The concept of affordable personal transportation was first introduced in Germany at the inception of the Second World War. With very few Germans owning a car the early 30’s, the automobile market was reserved to luxury and wealth. This would soon change as more manufacturers saw the opportunity of selling vehicles in high volume.
The race for the perfect ‘people’s car’ eventually gave way to one of the most iconic brands and models ever… The Volkswagen Beetle. Ferdinand Porsche and his dedicated team designed the beetle between 1934 and 1938. The Volkswagen beetle objective was to carry two adults and three children at 100 km/h across Germany’s roads.
Today, Volkswagen continues making cars for the people of all different shapes and sizes. Small hatches and coupes for the city-dwellers, compact SUVs and family cars. But also bigger more rugged SUVs for those who need all-terrain access and vans. With Elite you can drive the latest version of icons such as the VW Golf GTi, Polo and T-roc.
