About Volkswagen Calgary
Founded in May 28th, 1937, Volkswagen transitioned through a number of names in its early days, starting with the lengthy “Gesellschaft zur Vorbereitung des Deutschen Volkswagens mbH” and after a year replacing it with the much more simple, “Volkswagens mbH”.
Headquartered in Wolfsburg, the original Volkswagens were devised with the notion that they would become the staple automobile for the average German at the time. Interestingly, those early models were designed by none other than the famed Ferdinand Porsche.
Today, Volkswagen’s North American line-up consists of the compact Golf in 3-door, 5-door and wagon body styles, the Jetta sedan, the performance-oriented GTI and GLI models, the mid-size Passat, the CC four-door coupe, the Eos coupe/convertible, the Beetle, the compact Tiguan crossover, the Touareg SUV and Touareg Hybrid as well as the Routan minivan.
