About the Kubelwagen:
Officially designated a car and not a truck, the Kubelwagen (“tub car”) was designed using the chassis and rear engine design of a Volkswagen Beetle, with upgraded independent suspension and a reinforced steel chassis. Significantly lighter than the American Jeep, the Kubelwagen featured better fuel mileage and effective off-road handling without the use of four-wheel drive. When production ceased at the end of the war, 50,435 Kubelwagens had been produced.
- Range: 450 km (280 mi)
