The Volkswagen Beetle first came on the scene in 1947, but they were known by a different name. KdF, short for Kraft durch Freude, meaning ‘Power by Joy’, was designated to these small, gas-friendly vehicles. In English, the name Beetle was used and in German, they were known as Kafers.
The Volkswagen Beetle (officially the Volkswagen Type 1), informally in Germany is a two-door, four passenger, rear-engine economy car manufactured and marketed by VW from 1938 until 2003. With 21,529,464 copies produced, the Beetle is the longest-running and most manufactured car of a single platform ever made. Additions to 1960 models were front sway bars and hydraulic steering dampers.
