Founded in 1937, Volkswagen was created with the intention of providing accessible car ownership to German families, regardless of their wealth. Despite a rocky beginning, due to the start of WWII, becoming one of the world’s largest and most successful car companies is a testament to VW’s resiliency and dedication. The brand has grown to include a multitude of companies such as Seat and Audi as well as an array of iconic vehicles. Arguably their most famous was the Type 1 Beetle which established production records by selling more than 15 million vehicles by 1972. Its popular success however has slowly declined over the years leading up to its discontinuation in 2003 whilst still holding onto its title as one of history’s most notable automobiles. The Volkswagen emissions scandal of 2015 brought to light a shocking deception that affected millions of drivers around the world. An investigation conducted by the United States Environmental Protection Agency uncovered the truth - that VW had intentionally programmed their turbocharged direct injection (TDI) diesel engines to only emit in line with environmental standards when tested in a laboratory setting, but to emit up to 40 times more NOx into the atmosphere when driven on real roads. The scale of this deceit was truly staggering and highly damaging; across Europe, 8.5 million cars were recalled, including an estimated 2.4million in Germany and 1.2 million in the UK alone, with yet more abroad and over 500,000 cars recalled in America which significantly impacted Volkswagen’s reputation as a leader within the automotive industry.  As illustrated by this scandal, it is essential for manufacturers to be held accountable for reducing emissions produced by their vehicles in order to protect the health and safety of our environment for future generations.

    Volkswagen Models

    The addition of the eighth generation VW Golf model has only increased its popularity. This modern marvel boasts a unique mix of comfort, versatility and dynamic driving. Numerous trim levels from the standard Golf to performance-driven GTI and R models mean you can tailor it to suit your specific needs. There’s also an array of hybrid or electric powertrains that give you efficient versions between 205-265bhp. Contentiously, across generations, its slick exterior design makes sure this model stands out. Whether it’s a Sunday road trip or everyday commutes filled with city driving; the VW Golf has proven time and time again why this model is an excellent choice.

    Volkswagen number plates are popular accents for many models of the Golf, prominently displaying the type of car to other drivers on the road. The 2003-08 iteration of the vehicle can display a special license plate which measures 534mm x 135mm, slightly larger than the UK standard size. This was upgraded in 2009-12 iterations to be 587mm x 130mm, with further increases to 624mm x 131mm then 640mm x 164mm for the 2017-20 “R” Mark VII variant. People looking to dress up their Golf and make a statement about their vehicle can therefore choose from an array of sizes and shapes for their number plate that best exhibits the style they seek.

    Volkswagen have achieved spectacular success with car models such as the Scirocco, Tiguan and Touareg, the latter of which is currently one of their best-selling vehicles worldwide. The reliable and ever-popular Tiguan has been in production since 2007 and is still going strong, much like custom Volkswagen number plates here at Easy Number Plates.
