VW Golf production began in 1974 and almost 40 years VW is celebrating the production of the 30 Millionth Golf. According to VW an average of over 2,000 people have purchased a new Golf every day for the past 39 years.
Prof. Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG, stated, “The history of the Golf is also the history of automotive progress. With technologies such as the safe front-wheel drive of the first Golf, the debut of the TDI in the third Golf, ESC (Electronic Stability Control) and the dual clutch gearbox of the fourth Golf and the standard Automatic Post-Collision Braking System of the new generation, this car has continued to democratise progress.
An optimum of safety, comfort and driving fun are no longer a question of money thanks to the Golf. And so our bestseller lives up to the Volkswagen name.”
The U.S. has yet to receive the new seventh-generation Golf. Unfortunately we will have to wait until early next year when the new Golf and GTI models arrive for the 2015 model year.
