The Volkswagen Type 1, widely known as the Volkswagen Beetle, is an economy car produced by the German auto maker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until 2003. With over 21 million manufactured in an air-cooled, rear-engined, rear-wheel drive configuration, the Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured automobile of a single design platform anywhere in the world.The Beetle was officially designated as the Volkswagen Type 1 and was marketed in Europe by the designations Volkswagen 1100, 1200, 1300, 1500, or 1600 – denoting its engine size. The model became widely known in its home country as the KΓ€fer, German for "beetle", and the model ultimately took the same nickname in English. In the 1950s, the Beetle was more comfortable and powerful than most European small cars, having been designed for sustained high speed on the Autobahn. It remained a top seller in the US, owing much of its success to high build-quality and innovative advertising, ultimately giving rise to variants, including the Volkswagen Karmann Ghia and the Volkswagen Type 2 van.
