The Volkswagen font that is used in the current logo is a typeface by the name of VW Head. It is a custom design Sans Serif font created specifically for the Volkswagen motoring group and was first released in 2015.

The VH Head font replaces the VH Headline font which had been in use up until 1997. This new updated font comes in both Regular and Bold styles, and includes a full set of Uppercase, Lowercase, and Numeric character glyphs. The image below shows both of these fonts in action, and how the font lettering has been applied to the logo for the Volkswagen Golf 7.

There is also a companion font called VW Text. As the name suggest, this lettering style has been mainly used as the updated text font for Volkswagen literature. You can get yourself a copy of both of these fonts by clicking on the Download link below. Please remember that both of these fonts are licensed as Free For Personal use only.

The download file below includes these 2 typefaces in both OTF and TTF font format.

About the Volkswagen typeface

A German word that means “people’s car,” Volkswagen, which was originally known as Gesellschaft zur Vorbereitung des Deutschen Volkswagens mbH, was state-owned by Germany and a project of Adolf Hitler in pursuit of his desire to provide affordable yet speedy vehicle for the masses for their transportation needs. Hitler hired engineer and Porsche founder Ferdinand Porsche to design the said “people’s car,” giving birth to its famous “Beetle.” In 1960, the German government denationalized the company after selling 60% of its stock to the public. In 1972, Volkswagen’s Beetle dominated the automotive world as it surpassed Ford Model T’s record sales, making it the most produced car in history.

If there’s a word for the Volkswagen font, it would be “original.” Developed especially for the car company, the idea was a brainchild when the Volkswagen Group couldn’t find an existing typeface to fit its brand. The font was done by hand and improved on a minicomputer. Just like how the Beetle outshines others, make your projects stand out with the Volkswagen font! This soft and rounded sans-serif typeface is so attractive and beautiful, that you can use it for formal invitations, signages, logos, presentations, web designs, cloth designs, and other related pieces. From simple office and school reports to design works, the Volkswagen font is truly heaven-sent.
