The Volkswagen Group with its headquarters in Wolfsburg is
one of the world’s leading automobile manufacturers and the
largest carmaker in Europe. In 2009, the Group increased the
number of vehicles delivered to customers to 6.336 million
(2008: 6.257 million), corresponding to a 11.3 percent share
of the world passenger car market.
In Western Europe, the largest car market in the world, just
over one in five new cars (20.9 percent) comes from the Volks­
wagen Group. Group sales came in 2009 to 105.2 billion euros
(2008: 113.8 billion). Profit after tax in the 2009 financial year
amounted to 0.9 billion euros (2008: 4.69 billion).
The Group is made up of nine brands from seven European
countries: Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT, Skoda, Volkswagen
Commercial Vehicles, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini and
Scania.

Each brand has its own character and operates as an in­
dependent entity on the market. The product range extends
from low-consumption small cars to luxury class vehicles.
In the commercial vehicle sector, the product offering spans
pick ups, busses and heavy trucks.
The Group operates 60 production plants in fifteen
European countries and a further six countries in the
Americas, Asia and Africa. Around the world, nearly
370,000 employees produce about 26,000 vehicles or
are involved in vehicle-­related services each working day.
The Volkswagen Group sells its vehicles in 153 countries.
It is the goal of the Group to offer attractive, safe and
environmentally sound vehicles which are competitive
on an increasingly tough market and which set world
standards in their respective classes.

Ferdinand Porsche’s blue-print
turned the dream of automotive
mobility for the masses into a
“people’s car”. The automobile
laid the foundation for a com­
pany which rapidly acquired
international significance after
the Second World War.
The motor of the “Wirtschafts­
wunder“ was air-cooled and
fitted at the rear of a car whose
distinctive silhouette made
Volkswagen a household name
all over the world, just as the
Transporter launched in 1950
became a much-loved work­
horse and camper.
Numerous production facilities
outside Europe were already
being set up in the 1950s to
bring the automaker closer to
the customer.
Having evolved into a German
automotive group with the
acquisition of “Auto Union
GmbH” and “NSU Moto­ren­
werke AG” in the 1960s, the
dynamic market success of the
Passat, Golf and Polo post-1973
triggered further corporate
growth towards a multi-brand
group: SEAT and Skoda were
added in 1985 and 1991,
Bentley, Lamborghini and
Bugatti in 1998.
The brands “Volkswagen
Commercial Vehicles” and
Scania, that was acquired in
2008, with factories in Europe,
Africa and South America pro­
vide a differentiated range of
products spanning city vans,
trucks and busses to suit the
most diverse mobility require­
ments.
The financial services pro­
vided by Volkswagen Financial
Services AG, a company whose
roots go back as far as 1949,
also contribute to the automo­
tive success of the Volkswagen
Group.
Founded on strong brands, the
Volkswagen Group continues
its successful automotive tradi­
tion with fascinating products.
Bolstered by another rise in unit
sales to just under 6.3 million
vehicles, the Volkswagen Group
remains on course to become
the world’s leading automaker
by 2018 – eco­nomically and
ecologically.

mbH” is established in Berlin.
Early 1938
Construction of the Volkswagen
plant east of Fallersleben be­
gins.
September 16, 1938
The company name is changed
to “Volkswagenwerk GmbH”.
Between 1939 and 1945,
the Volkswagen plant is re­
organized for the production
of arma­ments rather than the
production of civilian vehicles.
The expanding armaments out­
put of the plant after summer
1940 leads the company to
meet most of its labour needs
by ­using forced labour from
abroad. In late summer 1944,
almost two thirds of the
18,000-strong workforce is
made up of foreign forced
labourers.
April 11, 1945
The American troops who enter
the town put an end to the pro­
duction of military equip­ment
and liberate the forced
labourers.
