  • In 1972 VW claimed that it had taken over from Ford when the 15,007,034th had been manufactured in Feb of that year.
  • Until the late 1990’s the VW Beetle had been the top seller but was soon overtaken by the Toyota Corolla – branding was incorporated across a wide spectrum of vehicles for marketing reasons.
