No matter how much you liked your VW, if you wanted a larger car in the 1950s – but no van – you had to look elsewhere, as the company had nothing to offer. This changed when VW presented the 1500, internally called Type 3, in 1961. It followed the basic engineering principle of the beetle, meaning it had an air-cooled engine in the rear, which in this case was a 1.5 litre flat-four with a power output of 33 kW (45 hp). Owing to the reduced height of the engine, there was some luggage space in the back, supplementing the main luggage compartment under the front bonnet, which also was significantly larger than that of the beetle. Body styles included a two-door sedan and station wagon, called Variant, and as of 1965, a fastback coupé, the TL. A 1.6 litre engine was added to the lineup, and in 1967, the VW 1600 E became the first German production car to feature an electronic fuel injection, the Bosch D-Jetronic.
For the 1969 facelift the front was lengthened by 12 cm, further increasing luggage capacity. The “long snout” remained in production until 1973 when it was replaced by the all-new Passat. All in all, over 2.5 million units of the Type 3 were built, almost half of them were station wagons.
