Volkswagen was founded in 1937 and has since grown into one of the largest automobile companies in the world.
Volkswagen's relationship with the UK dates back to 1952, when the first two Beetles were sold. Today Volkswagen UK, as part of the Volkswagen Group, is one of the country's largest importers of vehicles, employing nearly 600 people nationwide, with the Volkswagen brand employing 180 in Blakelands alone.
Over the years we’ve created many iconic VW cars, from the Beetle and Campervan, to the Golf GTI and Scirocco. Our latest proud addition to the family is the cleverly compact Volkswagen up! – recently named the What Car? Car of the Year. Although very different, all VW cars have one thing in common – they are engineered to the very best of our ability and remain fun to drive.
Here at Volkswagen we take your safety very seriously. That's why we build our cars to offer maximum protection in the event of an accident. Crumple zones - part of the tough safety shell, airbags (up to 9 in some models) and Isofix child seat fixings are standard in all VW cars which through a comprehensive programme of crash tests, before they are launched onto the market.
