Volkswagen of America Inc. is making a huge statement by introducing a pink version of the Beetle with a hashtag on its official name. Called the #PinkBettle, it’s a Beetle covered in its own unique shade of Fresh Fuschia Metallic paint that would put Pink Panther to shame.
The year 2016 is memorable for an icon in the history of automobile. 70 years ago, the very 1st Volkswagen Beetle rolled off the production line in Wolfsburg, Germany. This marked a new era of civilian vehicle manufacturing.
Volkswagen AG was hit hard with a recent fuel emission controversy in the US. But that didn’t mean everything went tumbling down for the German automaker. In fact, Volkswagen Philippines remained optimistic regarding the matter and assured their customers that everything is ok.
With a history that spans over 70 years, the Volkswagen Beetle has remained faithful to its iconic design and stands as a monument for being the very first “People’s Car.” This is a look back at 3 generations of the “Bug.”
