Volkswagen has announced the 30 millionth Golf has rolled off the assembly line at the company's plant in Wolfsburg, Germany.

The 30 millionth car was a Golf TDI BlueMotion which will be put on display for all employees to see at this weekend's Wolfsburg open house.

According to Volkswagen Chairman Prof. Martin Winterkorn, "The history of the Golf is also the history of automotive progress. With technologies such as the safe front-wheel drive of the first Golf, the debut of the TDI in the third Golf, ESC (Electronic Stability Control) and the dual clutch gearbox of the fourth Golf and the standard Automatic Post-Collision Braking System of the new generation, this car has continued to democratize progress." He added that "safety, comfort and driving fun" are no longer a question of money thanks to the model.

Volkswagen also pointed out that the company has sold an average of over 2,000 Golfs every day for the past 39 years.
