On the 29th of March 1974 production of the Golf officially started at the Wolfsburg factory.
“The Golf is at the very heart of our brand. It stands for progress and technology like no other car. For example, the Golf made safety technology affordable for millions of people for the first time. Thanks to this, it made its mark on an entire generation. For seven generations, the Golf has made a contribution to the development of Volkswagen as a brand and as a group – into one of the most important automotive producers in the world.”Said Ralf Brandstätter, Chief Operating Officer of Volkswagen.
