Volkswagen – from an iconic Beetle to one of the world’s biggest automotive companies (INFOGRAPHIC)

German automaker Volkswagen is associated to most people with iconic models such as the classic Beetle, 60s mini van with a big VW sign on the front and the evolutionary Golf that is now in seventh generation with the eight-generation model already in development.

Volkswagen is also one of the world’s biggest multinational automotive manufacturing companies.

Under its big umbrella are also Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, Seat, Skoda and 5 more motoring brands across Europe.

The group produces upwards of 10 million cars per year, from 100+ production facilities across 27 countries.
