    Volkswagen started Golf’s series production on March 29th, exactly fifty years ago, in Wolfsburg. Back then, nobody had an idea that this compact car, which succeeded the iconic Beetle, would become the most successful Volkswagen model. Since its debut in 1974, over 37 million units have been produced which equates to over 2,000 new Golf purchases every single day globally over the past five decades.

    Volkswagen transitioned to the Golf in July 1974 from the iconic Beetle, making a huge jump to front-mounted transverse engines. Giorgio Giugiaro designed the first Golf and it surpassed expectations in a short time. By October 1976, one million units of Golf were produced.
