VW built the 30 millionth Golf

German carmaker Volkswagen has announced that fact that they are now building the 30 millionth Golf model at their German plant in Wolfsburg. This is actually a new production record of the most successful European car ever. Its production began in 1974 and since then, an average of over 2.000 people have purchased a new Golf each year over the past 39 years. The 30 millionth model is a Golf TDI BlueMotion, a model with a fuel consumption of 3.2 liters per 100 km. This makes it the most fuel efficient Golf ever built. The new car is part of the history of automotive progress as it comes with different technologies like safe front wheel drive of the first Golf, the debut of the TDI in the 3rd Golf, Electronic Stability Control and also the dual clutch transmission for the 4th Golf and the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System on the new generation offered as standard. In terms of safety, comfort and driving fun the carmaker is no longer  thinking about the money.



The Golf I was produced between 1974 and 1983 followed by the Golf II developed between 1983 and 1991. This second one came with elements like the controlled catalytic converter, ABS and all-wheel drive and this is the model the technologies have appeared for the first time in the company. The Golf III was built between 1991 and 1997 and the carmaker has initiated a new are of safety in the 3rd generation. This model was the first in the series to offer front airbags in 1992. In 2912 Volkswagen has reached the 7th generation and the weight of the car has been reduced by up to 100 km/h. This is the short version of the evolution of the new Golf.
