It’s fair to say that January was a good month for Volkswagen. In addition to their stellar sales numbers, the German automaker revealed a great commercial during the Super Bowl. Entitled “Wings,” the advertisement featured enthusiastic German engineers and a message that was centered on the fact that VW has the most vehicles on the road with over 100,000 miles.
The 100,000-mile claim is based on Wolfram Alpha’s data of average miles per year, along with HIS Automotive/Polk global registrations as recorded in 49 countries as of November 2013.
There was a milestone in Volkswagen history last month as well. January 30 marked the 65th anniversary of the release of the Volkswagen Beetle in the United States. The iconic VW Bug established Volkswagen in America, and many of those classic Beetles can still be seen on the road today alongside the 2014 model.
