The first Beetles were manufactured in the 1930s by Ferdinand Porsche who was asked by Adolph Hitler to bring in a mass production of the model.

Some reason that the Volkswagen Beetles were hated concerning its relation with Hitler while others reject to use it because it didn’t meet the expectations in the modern world. One of them is the founder of Ford Motor, Henry Ford hated it because he didn’t think it’s aesthetic and quiet enough!
