Bestseller: Launch of the Volkswagen T1
In addition to the VW Bug, the car that really got the ball rolling for this pioneering spirit was the VW Bus – a practical little van, a good four meters long and 75 km/h fast. Initially designed as a transport vehicle for the post office, movers and handymen, only seven years later the VW Bus was available as a leisure vehicle with panorama windows.
By 1968, this first Bus generation – today known as the T1 – sold more than 1.8 million units. Special feature: the divided front windshield.
