The 1600 badge was applied for convenience’s sake, to denote various 1·6-litre powered models. Originally, the Volkswagen 1600 was a version of the Typ 3 flagship in Germany. However, the name was used in Brazil for its own version of the Typ 3. As with the Volkswagen 1500 in Germany, which had the name apply to the Typ 3 before it applied to a big-capacity Käfer, 1600 became used in Brazil the same way. After the 1600 sedans had been deleted, the badge wound up on the Käfer (as the 1600S) till the car took the Fusca nickname as its official one in 1983.
