Missing engine info.[edit]

Narrative of engine development ends with the (U.S.-spec.) '67's 1500. It was succeeded a couple years later by the 1600, then the 1600 dual-port. See this. Sca (talk) 14:01, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

I significantly improved 1953-1969 today. I'll work on 1970-beyond soon and will address the 1600cc engine and other changes. Expandinglight5 (talk) 01:00, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Also Called[edit]

The Also Called section in the infobox is getting too lengthy. The purpose of this section is for other names of the vehicle. Since this is an English Wiki page, it seems incorrect to list the name of the vehicle in other languages as it would have been sold in other non-English speaking markets. The See Also section of the page lists a link to other names: List of names for Type 1

Can we agree that the Also Called section of the infobox should be limited to other names in English speaking markets i.e. Bug, Super Beetle, etc? Expandinglight5 (talk) 20:19, 25 December 2015 (UTC)


Start of production[edit]

In the introduction the Production is clamed from 1938 on, but the text clearly sais, that the Production startet not before 1941 in a small scale, and mass production after the war. In 1938 only a few preseries Vehicles where completed. Since when the preseries marks the beginning of the production?--WerWil (talk) 10:35, 2 October 2016 (UTC)
