The cross-country mobility of the VW-Kübelwagen was legendary. Its small dead weight, rear drive and rear engine lead to its popularity. Between 1940 and 1945 more than 50,000 exemplars were manufactured.  At first attempt it worked much better than all other constructions before. Still more cross-country mobile was the VW-Schwimmwagen because it had an all-wheel drive. But as an amphibious vehicle it might have been used rather rarely. From 1942 to 1944 more than 14,000 exemplars were manufactured. By the different versions of the VW “Kaefer” only a few hundreds or thousands might have been manufactured (partially with all-wheel drive or the chassis of the Kübelwagen).
