    40-page journey back in time through the history of research at Volkswagen

    In its new publication Ahead of the time, Volkswagen goes on a fascinating journey back in time through the history of research and development: as early as in 1955, the brand developed its first prototype with a unitary body and front-wheel drive. The first crash tests were conducted in 1965 and the ESVW I research vehicle from 1972 represented a milestone in the improvement of safety. The 40-page brochure covers developments in the area of alternative drives and also takes a look at the shape of things to come.
