Following the release of the last remaining site from British control, the production line in Brunswick is modified to meet the demands of "Ford-ist", large-scale production in Wolfsburg and Hanover. A phase of rationalisation follows accompanied by an expansion of production capacities and manufacturing processes. Shed 3 with 25.000 sq. metres, is completed by the end of 1957 and takes on the construction of front axles for the sedan previously located in Wolfsburg; in 1958 the manufacture of the front axle for the Transporter is temporarily transferred to Hanover in order to free additional capacities in Brunswick for the expanding production of the Beetle.
