Volkswagen beetle or bug was produced by the German motor company Volkswagen for the first time around 1938. The beetle is an air cooled rear wheel drive. The model was named volkwagen type 1 initially and marketed as simply ‘volkswagen’. The beetle being very comfortable, powerful and capable of sustaining high speeds with its innovative advertising and high build quality was a favorite in the US market among other European small cars. During the Second World War beetles were produced in small numbers for the Nazi elite specifically for the civilians in the years. The world witnessed mass production of the beetle in the post war period. Significant changes had been introduced to the beetle over the years including upgradation of drive train, displacement engine enlargement, horsepower increase, increase in the size of clutch disc, flywheel changes, braking system alterations and rear axle changes, two speed windscreen wipers, reversing lights, locking buttons on the doors, driver’s armrest on the door and exterior mirror on the passenger’s side. The stretched nose design was introduced from 1973 onwards in the super beetle model. Higher rear mudguards, two speed heater fan, larger tail lights, larger front brakes, energy absorbing steering wheel with four spokes, four rows of vents, tail lights with reverse lights, tubular attachments which were energy absorbing and self restoring instead of the bumper mounting brackets were some features that the evolved beetle had. In 1949 the beetle cabriolet was circulated in production. Following the 1970s, the beetle faced severe marketing depression with the introduction of newer and more modern American and other European models.
