Ford Germany

Ford started assembling the Model T in Berlin in 1925. Ford established a factory in Cologne in Germany in 1931 where production started with the Model B. The Köln was almost identical to the British Ford 8, the first Ford to be built at Dagenham. The 1157cc Eifel was a very popular model. The Taunus appeared just before World War II but was not produced in large numbers. It was continued in 1948 with the same engine. The name Taunus was later used for all Fords built in Germany until 1968 when Ford built identical Ford Escort cars in Germany and

DKW (DE) 1916-1964

The name DKW is derived from Dampf - Kraft - Wagen (Steam powered
vehicle) as the first vehicle Danish engineer Jürgen Skafte Rasmussen
built (in 1916) was a light steam car. Like so many other
manufacturers, DKW were also famous for their motorcycles and by the
1930's DKW was in fact the world's largest motorcycle manufacturer.

In 1928 a new two-stroke engine was manufactured to power the first DKW car.
The same engine design was later used by SAAB in their 92, 93 and 96
models.
