The plant in Emden, constructed to ensure sufficient supplies for the North American market begins assembling the Beetle. The assembly plant receives bodies from Wolfsburg, engines from Hanover, transmissions and frames from Kassel and front axles from Brunswick. Over 500 vehicles roll off the assembly line each day. They are shipped from the company's own port directly to the United States and Canada. By March 1966, the plant expands its assembly capacity to 1,100 vehicles a day. At first production is limited to the Beetle and the Transporter, but soon expands with the start of the production of the Golf in June 1974.
