Trabant

Trabant

The Trabant is an automobile that was produced by former East German auto maker VEB Sachsenring Automobilwerke Zwickau inZwickauSachsen. It was the most common vehicle in East Germany, and was also exported to countries both inside and outside thecommunist bloc. The main selling points was that it had room for four adults and luggage in a compact, light and durable shell and that it was fast (when introduced) and durable. With its mediocre performance, smoky two-stroke engine, and production shortages, the Trabant is often cited as an example of the disadvantages of centralized planning; on the other hand, it is regarded with derisive affection as a symbol of the failed former East Germany and of the fall of communism (in former West Germany, as many East Germans streamed into West Berlin and West Germany in their Trabants after the opening of the Berlin Wall in 1989). It was in production without any significant changes for nearly 30 years with 3,096,099 Trabants produced in total.
