2020 Volkswagen Jetta on Road

Many car-buyers are curious about where automakers produce their models, and how production may have changed over time. So, who owns Volkswagen in 2020? VW is owned and managed by Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft — or Volkswagen AG. The VW Group of America works to supply over 600 independently-owned dealerships, so that you can check out the latest models — whether you live in Atlantic City or Wildwood!

In fact, VW has seen enough success to purchase other auto brands! So who does Volkswagen own? Below, take a closer look at VW history with the Atlantic Volkswagen team.

Volkswagen Brand History

Founded in 1937, VW saw rapid growth after the launch of the popular Beetle (originally known as the Type 1). In the 1970s, VW expanded its lineup with a series of front-wheel drive models like the Polo, Golf, and Passat. Today, the Golf and the Passat are still among the brand’s top-selling models. Thanks to its growing reputation, Volkswagen was able to acquire other major brands like Porsche and Audi.

What Car Companies Does Volkswagen Own?

Incredible success in the 1970s and 80s allowed Volkswagen to extend its reach far beyond its own lineup of iconic sedans, hatchbacks, and wagons. So who does Volkswagen own? Volkswagen is currently the parent company of the following automobile brands:

  • Audi
  • SEAT
  • ŠKODA
  • Bentley
  • Bugatti
