A Brief History Of Three European Auto Firms

People in the United States usually do not think of what other countries can turn out or have accomplished. We buy a car and do not really think about where they were built unless they were luxury cars. You will find European car companies that turn out exceptional cars, but these companies are not who you think they are. Rolls Royce, Mercedes, and BMW really are exceptional cars, along with Lamborghini or perhaps a Jaguar, but these are beyond the reach of a typical car buyer. But there are three additional car manufacturers that make excellent automobiles. The following article will focus on Volvo, Volkswagen and Audi.

It is remarkable to think of a country of merely nine million people, having a single automaker, but to have two is unthinkable. The country is Sweden so the two firms are Saab and Volvo. Of the two, Volvo, that is owned by Ford Motor Company, has had a great impact on the automobile business. Their greatest effect on the industry has been in the area of safety capabilities. Some of the things that had their origins with Volvo, are reinforced roofs, front end crumple zones, and specially designed interiors. They grew to be well known for generating good quality and ultra safe vehicles. It was due to Volvo’s wish for excellence that raised the safety standards of cars throughout the world.

The Volkswagen Beetle is one of those legendary automobiles that just about anyone knows about. The Beetle was the first people’s car, and it was first designed during the 1930s in Germany. Just after World War II, it established itself as on the list of best loved cars and one of the most mass-produced cars ever. Just about anyone would be able to find the money for a Volkswagen Beetle. This included students, to migrant workers, to Irish farmlands, having a car turned out to be affordable. The Beetle stayed popular in the United States until eventually Volkswagen stopped importing them in the 1970’s however they continued to be produced in Mexico until the the first half of the 2000’s.

When Audi first announced the all wheel drive Quattro, it was the very first of its type. Audi threw down the gauntlet, and let the auto community know that Quattro was now the standard to judge all luxury sedans from then on. Their Quattro engineering put them in front of the competition for years. Their traction technology was so innovative and superior to others that the cars were banned in some types of racing competition.

That’s a summary of three exceptional automakers from Europe. But if you truly ponder about what they did for the auto industry, the more accurate word is extraordinary.
