AGA was a German automobile manufacturer, founded in 1915 as " Autogen-Gas-Akkumulator-AG", mass producing gun components during the war. The company produced automobiles in Berlin from 1919 to 1929. It underwent a name change in May 1920, becoming the rather unimaginatively named "Aktiengesellschaft fuer Automobilbau", and was acquired in 1922 by the Hugo Stinnes group of companies. The first car, the Typ A of 1919 had a 1418 cc four-cylinder engine driving the rear wheels through a three speed manual transmission. The more successful Typ C followed in 1921 with the same configuration and engine but tuned to give a maximum of 20 PS in place of the earlier car's 16 PS. The car was without much obvious technical ambition, but it was inexpensive for its size and robust, becoming popular especially with small business owners despite its dire brakes. In several cities, including Berlin and Breslau, it was for some time the most popular car for use as a as a taxi. Hugo Stinnes died in 1924. Dinos, which had been bought in 1922 was merged with AFA to increase production space, as was Rabag which was licensed to build Bugatti cars at the time.
