About the Volkswagen brand
Germany-based Volkswagen was founded in 1937, and its mission was to create a car that was affordable and efficient. That vision exploded in full force as the Beetle was introduced in 1959, catapulting VW to the number-one auto import in the US.
In 2014, Volkswagen vehicles were found to emit higher levels of nitrogen oxides than was reported in official environmental standards tests. Thus Volkswagen’s “diesel dupe” scandal was uncovered: The manufacturer had installed software in its engines to circumvent proper emissions testing. VW later recalled millions of vehicles worldwide, on top of paying billions of dollars in penalties and civil settlements.
