The love of the Chinese people has long been an indisputable fact, but do you really know how deep this love is? Without Chinese, Volkswagen’s global sales champion will be directly taken away by Toyota; without Chinese people, Volkswagen’s global sales will not even be as good as Hyundai-Kia Group; Chinese people have created 40 % of Volkswagen’s global sales, and all European countries The sum is comparable, and it is 10 times the United States. Now, you should understand what is “true love”? So the question is, how exactly the public occupies the hearts of the Chinese step by step? Through the milestone models of these 11 Volkswagen in China, I believe you will definitely find the answer!

In 1983, Shanghai Volkswagen Co., Ltd. was formally established, and the first batch of domestic Volkswagen Santana was put into operation immediately. This not only means that Volkswagen’s old German car company has officially entered China, but also means that the gate of China’s joint venture sedan is officially opened! In fact, there is no need to introduce too much about Volkswagen Santana, because if you write the history of Chinese automobile development as a book, most of them may be introducing this car. It is no exaggeration to say that Santana was a national Dreamcar who did not even dare to think about it and the middle -aged people dared to imagine in their dreams. Perhaps, the word “magic car” we often say is from this car.

And this Volkswagen car that opened the Chinese market has started in China in 1983 in CKD and has been producing and selling in China to 2012. In the past 30 years, a baby can grow into a man in the sky, and Santana will use 30 years to describe the public history of the public in China.

Today, Volkswagen still has a model called Santana, but this car is completely the same as Santana that year. You know, Old Santana is a B -class car on the vertical platform and is the flagship model of the Volkswagen brand in the world. The current SAIC Volkswagen Santana is only based on the Chinese special car created by the previous generation PQ25 platform POLO.

In 1991, FAW and German Volkswagen cooperated to jointly establish FAW-Volkswagen joint venture. The first domestic Jetta A2 was officially offline. Although from the timeline, domestic Jetta A2 in 1991 was already the upcoming product of Germany (German Jetta A2 was discontinued in 1992), but for the Chinese market at the time, Jetta A2’s technology was still very advanced. Essence

In 1997, FAW-Volkswagen launched Jetta’s modified models and named it “King of Jetta”. King Jetta was equipped with a very advanced 1.6L 20 valve electric injection engine at the time. In terms of performance, especially low -twisted performance, it was very good.

In this way, with the recognition of German quality and good technical level, Jetta has obtained amazing sales since 1991. As of the suspension of Jetta in 2012, this magic car has sold more than 2.2 million vehicles in China! Even in 2012, Jetta still sold 242,500 units in the Chinese market, with an average monthly sales of 20,000 units!

After the 21-year-old Jetta was discontinued in 2012, FAW-Volkswagen launched a “new Jetta” model. This car is actually a brother’s car as SAIC Volkswagen Santana in the same period. Special off -car has nothing to do with the real Jetta.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

In 2019, the word “Jetta” was upgraded again, and it was directly jumped to the new independent sub -brand of the public. In other words, when mentioning Jetta in the future, it will no longer be a car, but a brand.

Students who are familiar with the Volkswagen product line should be clear that the earliest domestic Volkswagen Santana is actually the European version of Passat B2, which is the second -generation European version of Passat. However, Santana, who was born in the last century, obviously could not keep up with the trend of the 21st century. As a result, the Shanghai Volkswagen launched the first medium -sized sedan called “Passat” in 2000, hoping to replace the Santana to fight the mid -to -high -end car market through it. However, due to the extremely successful domestic Santana, the Shanghai Volkswagen at that time did not intend to stop the production of this car, but hoped to continue to sell in the form of the new and old Tongtang.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

The final result is naturally satisfactory. With excellent space, heavy driving experience and excellent performance, Passat has become a benchmark for domestic medium -sized cars once it was listed. Exclusive vehicle for business reception.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

With the solid reputation made by Passat B5, the revised models launched one after another have also been steadily taking the top chairs of Chinese medium -sized cars all year round. It was not until the latest generation of SAIC Passat Passat, based on the MQB platform, and the incident ushered in the transfer … Em

The current Volkswagen Passat is essentially a Chinese special car. Based on the Volkswagen MQB platform, it was officially launched in October 2018. After the listing, New Passat has achieved the results of the medium -sized sedan sales champion over the medium -sized sedan sales championship after the listing and excellent comfort. It seems that the legend that belongs to Passat will continue to write in China.

But on December 24, 2019, China Insurance Research C-ISI announced the results of Volkswagen Passat’s collision testing results. What is surprising is that Passat not only did not prove its “German quality” to everyone, but it refreshed China Insurance to China Insurance. The lowest score of the collision test was exploded as soon as the news was announced.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

After the China -Baoye incident continued to ferment, Volkswagen Passat’s reputation fell thousands of feet. In just one month, it fell from the original B -class car sales champion. Fortunately, the public corrected in time, strengthened the strength of the body in the subsequent new models, and re -applied for the China Insurance Research Test. After getting the evaluation of G (Excellent), it was barely restored Passat’s reputation.

When it comes to the Chinese market, in addition to Charlie and Fukang in the 1990s, it will be the Volkswagen Golf in the 21st century. In 2003, FAW-Volkswagen’s domestic fourth-generation golf model. Although Gao 4 had been discontinued in Germany at that time, for the Chinese market, Higher 4 was not backward in terms of technical level and design. Like Volkswagen Passat at the same time, Golf 4 also used the most advanced technology at that time, such as the 1.6L electro -injection engine, a 5 -speed manual transmission, laser welding, and so on.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

From the price point of view, the price of 116-139,000 is not expensive for the joint venture car at the time. In addition, the excellent driving experience and thick texture of the Gao 4 itself. Favorite.

It is more regrettable that because Gao 4 has been listed late in China, FAW-Volkswagen does not have the fifth generation of domestic golf, but only brought small-batch 5th generation GTI models to the country in the form of imports.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

However, with the launch of the 6th generation golf in Germany in 2008, FAW-Volkswagen’s response was very timely. In 2009, only one year later, the 6th generation model was made. The 6th -generation golf adopted the PQ35 platform of Volkswagen at that time, and there was a 1.4T+7DSG gold power combination. You know, most of the joint venture A market at that time used the 1.6L+4AT combination. Even the more sporty Honda Civic was just 1.8L+5AT. Therefore, at this time, a 1.4T+7 -speed dual -clutch transmission has appeared, which will obviously attract strong interest in everyone.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

In addition, High 6 also adopts a four -wheeled independent suspension structure, and continues the previous Volkswagen’s laser welding body and cavity waxing technologies. Under the double blessing of excellent and efficient power assemblies and solid texture. There are even hot scenes of price increases. To this day, many Volkswagen fans still serve the high 6 as a magic car.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

The 8th -generation golf, which has just been listed some time ago, has a younger appearance and a more technological sense. The power combination of 1.4T+7DSG has become more mature. Although today’s golf has no strong sense of surprise when the new car was listed, and it would not cause fanatics to increase the price, but I had to admit that Golf’s comprehensive product power was still remarkable in the current Chinese hatchback market.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

As mentioned earlier, because FAW-Volkswagen’s domestic high 4 time is late, there is no domestic fifth-generation golf. However, at the time, Volkswagen chose the same platform as the fifth-generation golf platform and even the sedan model with the same front face-Jetta (named by overseas), and also gave it a Chinese name: Sagitar Sagitar.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

Domestic Sagitar was officially launched in April 2006. In the early days, the 2.0L and 1.8T engines were carried out. The lowest version of the 2.0L+5MT version was sold to 173,800. As high as 216,800! Although Sagitar launched a 1.6L+5MT version of the low price in the future, the price also reached 138,800 yuan.

Behind the high price, in addition to the high brand positioning of Volkswagen itself, the solid technical foundation also directly increases the cost. In addition to Volkswagen’s latest PQ35 platform at that time, Sagitar also has an excellent 1.8T engine, and the Aisin 6AT gearbox, which was still rare at the time, coupled with the popular production processes such as the passage of laser welding of Volkswagen, despite the high price price , But the old Sagitar still gets quite good sales. In the subsequent changes, Volkswagen also installed the latest 1.4T+7 -speed DSG dynamic combination for Sagitar, and he dominated the entire compact sedan market with the golf 6.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

When time came to 2011, Volkswagen launched Sagitar’s replacement model. The new Sagitar was born on the same PQ35 platform as the 6th -generation golf. At the same time, it has a more popular home (set) family (baby) style in appearance design. Dual -clutch gearbox with “golden power assembly”.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

However, in order to reduce costs, this generation of Sagitar has changed the overseas version of the rear multi -link independent suspension to a drag arm -type non -independent suspension. At the same time, due to the unreasonable structural design and the selection of materials, a large -scale broken axis phenomenon occurred after the Sagitar was launched.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

Volkswagen’s solutions are also very perfunctory. First, “patch” upgraded structure strength for the old models equipped with a drag arm suspension. At the same time, this structure can also make a sound in front of the vehicle to remind the owner, which looks quite funny. In the subsequent annual remodeling, the rear suspension of this generation of Sagitar was changed back to the original multi -link independent suspension. What is puzzling is that such a model that has experienced a broken axis storm and a manufacturer perfunctory. After changing back to the independent suspension, the sales volume was reinstalled, and the sales of compact cars instantly returned to the top of the compact sedan.

In fact, from the perspective of life, this generation of Sagitar has nothing to do with Germany. In fact, it is a model developed by the German and Mexico mass. Even the version sold by Germany is also produced in Mexico. Fortunately, this generation of Sagitar of PQ35 still retains the solid style of German cars in terms of chassis texture and steering feel. In contrast, the new generation of Sagita (Jetta) has nothing to do with Germany, and it has become a Sino -US special supply car developed by Mexico. Even the chassis is a bit loose and cheap. Looking back, the old Sunteng sold in China in 2019 may be the last domestic Volkswagen car with Germany.

In an interview with Volkswagen Magotan car owners, “because this car is more advanced”, which puts a high -end hat for Volkswagen. It is undeniable that many Volkswagen models do have high levels when comparing the competition of the same level. But really let Chinese people aware of Volkswagen’s senior models must be the legendary Phaeton in the legendary “ass with letters”.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

In 1997, Ferdinand Piechi, then President of Volkswagen, was determined to create a luxury D -class car comparable to Mercedes -Benz S -Class and BMW 7 Series. As a result, a project named D1 was officially established. After 5 years of R & D and applied for more than 100 patents, the flagship sedan of the Volkswagen brand was born.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

Phaeton is made of the same D1 platform as the same period of the same period. It is more advanced than the Audi A8 in the same period. In addition, Volkswagen also came up with the most stringent standards and the highest level of manufacturing technology during production. For example, the gap error of the vehicle can be greater than 1mm. The vehicle can achieve a high -speed driving capacity of 300km/h. When the outdoor environment is 50 ° C, the temperature in the vehicle can still be guaranteed not to higher than 22 ° C.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

Such high -standard strict products also use the best power assembly of Volkswagen Group. Leaving aside the diesel engine that has nothing to do with China, Phaeton also has 3.0L V6, 3.6L V6, 4.2L V8, and 6.0L W12 engines. The price range covers 75-2.5318 million yuan.

However, such a top luxury car did not reflect its million -level value in the design. In addition, the Shanghai Volkswagen Passat was too similar to it at the same time, which eventually made it difficult for many people to see it from the appearance that it was in shape. The noble life.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

As mentioned earlier, the Volkswagen Sagitar, which was launched to the market in 2006. Although the quality is excellent, the relatively expensive price will refuse many families with a small budget. In addition, Sagitar is a product of FAW-Volkswagen, while Shanghai Volkswagen has always lacked a compact sedan home car. As a result, in April 2008, the Shanghai Volkswagen launched a new model-lavida Langyi.

Students who are familiar with the Volkswagen product line should be clear that the earliest domestic Volkswagen Santana is actually the European version of Passat B2, which is the second -generation European version of Passat. However, Santana, who was born in the last century, obviously could not keep up with the trend of the 21st century. As a result, the Shanghai Volkswagen launched the first medium -sized sedan called “Passat” in 2000, hoping to replace the Santana to fight the mid -to -high -end car market through it. However, due to the extremely successful domestic Santana, the Shanghai Volkswagen at that time did not intend to stop the production of this car, but hoped to continue to sell in the form of the new and old Tongtang.

Because at the beginning of the product, it was decided to take the cost -effective route, so Langyi did not use the latest PQ35 platform at that time, but used the old Jetta’s PQ34 platform to save costs. In terms of power systems, Langyi also uses the more mature 1.6L and 2.0L 8 valve naturally aspirated engines, and did not use the latest 1.4T+7DSG combination at that time.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

This design brings a very low price to Langyi. The minimum model of 1.6L+5MT is priced at only 112,800; even the top model of 2.0L+6AT, the price is only 149,800 yuan. In contrast, FAW-Volkswagen Sagitar 1.6L minimum car type has a starting price of 138,800 yuan, and the 1.8T top matching exceeds 210,000.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

Low -cheap prices, mature technologies, and the blessing of Volkswagen brands, once Langyi was launched, it quickly became the king of sales in the compact sedan market. Since then, Volkswagen has gradually made several changes to Langyi, and also replaced with 1.4T and 1.5L engines.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

In 2018, the new Langye of Langyi using the MQB platform was officially released, and the old PQ34 Langyi did not delist. Instead, it continued to be sold in the new and old Tongtang as the name “Langyi Sailing”. After changing to the MQB platform like Passat, it was thought that the appearance was like Passat, and relying on greater space and richer configuration, it would continue to dominate the domestic car market. However, with Passat’s “Faping Street” in China Insurance, it also indirectly affected Langy’s sales performance. In 2020, Langyi’s throne was won by Nissan Xuanyi, which was the best proof.

In 2010, FAW-Volkswagen officially put into production of a new medium-sized coupe CC. This car is actually an overseas version of Passat CC. As a coupe, the biggest selling point of CC is the face value, and the low and round line design of the vehicle is very sexy.

The four frameless doors are even more rare at the same level. In addition, the slippery shape and the linear taillights. In the era of the first sight of the public, the CC can definitely afford the title of the most beautiful public.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

The first batch of domestic CC models were equipped with 1.8TSI and 2.0TSI engines, which matched the DQ250 6 -speed DSG gearbox pushed by Volkswagen at that time. In terms of price, the CC was priced at 25.28-998,800 yuan at the time, which was almost 30,000 more expensive than FAW-Volkswagen Magotan on the same platform.

Nevertheless, CC has obtained a good market sales with its excellent face value. Although the average level of about 3,000 units is not as hot as models such as Passat, it is for a high -priced niche coupe car. It is also excellent.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

Today’s domestic CC is already the second -generation model of the MQB platform. The face value is still outstanding. Not only does it retain the frameless door, it has even been changed to a hatchback design, and there is a coupe. However, as the price of BBA medium -sized cars continues to explore to 300,000, there is not much living space left to CC.

Now when it comes to the SUV of the price increase, the first thing everyone thinks must be Mercedes -Benz’s “big G”, and a little more domestic car may count the Toyota Hanka. But after 00, I may not know that as early as 10 years ago, Volkswagen opened the gate of SUV price increase in China, and this price increase is the Tiguan.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

In 2010, Shanghai Volkswagen officially made a compact SUV Tiguan, and it also extended the Chinese market, lengting wheelbase from 2604mm to 2684mm. In terms of price, the 2010 Tiguan’s guidance price was 19.98-898 million yuan, the power system was equipped with 1.8TSI and 2.0TSI engines, the lowest model was a 5-speed manual gear, and the remaining models were equipped with Aisin 6AT gearbox.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

What I have to admit is that the shape design of Lao Tiguan is indeed very durable, and its technology and space configuration 10 years ago were also excellent. Therefore, despite the starting price of Tiguan, it has reached 200,000, and it has become an explosion of that era. The difficult situation of a car once made Tiguan start to increase the car increase in the terminal market.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

In January 2017, Volkswagen Tiguan L was officially launched in China, but Lao Tiguan did not delist, but continued to sell for new and old Tongtang. However, the poor product power and the old designs were no longer recognized by the market in 2017, and the price of Lao Tiguan once fell to 150,000 yuan.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

Although the Tiguan L is still the best SUV sold by the public today, due to the increasing number of CICC’s collision test events and competition at the same level, the competitiveness of Tiguan L is far from before, and the terminal market is 40,000. The discount around Yuan was in sharp contrast to the scenery of the price increase of the car.

When I mentioned above, I have introduced it that Jetta is no longer a car, but a brand. The significance of the Chinese special supply brand that was born in 2019 is to use Volkswagen’s technical background to launch various cost -effective models for the Chinese market, and then grab cakes with Chinese domestic cars.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

Among them, the most representative is the first model of the Jetta brand-Jetta VS5. In March 2019, Jetta VS5 was officially released, but it was not until September the Chengdu Auto Show that it announced its price of 8.48-112,800 yuan. Essence As soon as this price came out, countless fans and the media shouted “too cheap”. Why do you say that?

The core of Jetta VS5 is the three major pieces, which is the chassis, engine and gearbox in our usual cognition. First of all, VS5 uses Volkswagen’s latest MQB platform, which is more advanced than PQ34 used by Skoda Camick at the same price. In addition, VS5 also uses four -wheeled independent suspension, which is more helpful for improving the comfort of the vehicle and driving experience.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

In addition, Jetta VS5 is also equipped with a high -power 1.4T EA211 engine with a maximum power of 150 horsepower and a peak torque of 250N · m. What’s more important is that the VS5 gearbox also uses the more trusted Aisin 6AT instead of Volkswagen’s own 7 -speed DSG.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

In this way, VS5 has the strongest price of 100,000 prices in three major parts. With a good space and enough configuration, the VS5 quickly becomes a black horse of 100,000 levels. It is often a meal.

As we all know, in recent years, electric vehicles are a topic that all car manufacturers cannot avoid. As the largest joint venture brand in China, Volkswagen is also actively deploying the future. Although Volkswagen has also launched electric Langyi, electric golf and other models for the Chinese market, due to the characteristics of its own “oil -to -electricity”, it is very general in terms of space layout and battery life. For example 270km.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

However, with the domestic ID.4 series of domestic listing, the future models of Volkswagen have finally come. Different from the previous electric golf and other cars, ID.4 uses Volkswagen’s pure electric MEB platform, so it is completely created for electric vehicles in terms of body architecture design, battery pack layout, and power assembly layout.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

For example, FAW-Volkswagen ID.4 CROZZ’s length, width, height is 4592/1852/1629mm, and the wheelbase is 2765mm. The leader is similar to Tan Yue, but the wheelbase is 34mm longer than Tan Yue. In other words, the four wheels of ID.4 Crozz are closer to the four corners of the body, so that more space layout battery packs can be left between the front and rear axles, and it can bring excellent battery life of more than 550km. For the future of the public, the ID series electric vehicles are the direction of their main development.

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

As the earliest batch of foreign car brands to enter China, Volkswagen’s position in the hearts of Chinese people is unparalleled. In fact, it is not surprising that the public can achieve the current proud results. The excellent quality of early products, excellent marketing propaganda, and Chinese people’s infatuation of “German machinery” have laid a solid foundation for Volkswagen to become the king of Chinese joint venture cars. Essence

大众在中国能封神,离不开这11款车

However, the high level of life must be more aware of the peace of mind. Success does not mean slackness. The market recognition should be given more sincere treatment. It is undeniable that Volkswagen has built a fortress in the first 30 years of China. But now, the cracks of the outer wall seem to be implying hidden dangers hidden in the depths. Whether to make up for it immediately, or sitting at the same time, its own answers will be answered in the next 30 years.
