When the first Beetle rolled off the production line, it was simply called the Volkswagen—"the people's car"—but its distinctive shape inspired nicknames across the globe: Beetle, Käfer, Vocho, Coccinelle, Fusca, or Maggiolino! In total, 21.5 million cars were sold, making it the most popular car manufactured off a single platform of all time.
More than 60 years later, in 1998, the "New Beetle" rekindled the spirit and imagination of the original for a new generation of Volkswagen owners. This second-generation version sparked another round of "Beetle Mania".
Now, the third-generation of the internationally beloved Beetle is ready for prime time, going on sale in the United States this fall. There will be two models at launch: the Beetle and the sporty turbo. In 2012, a TDI® Clean Diesel will go on sale, which is likely to be the most fuel-efficient Beetle ever made.
