After Seven Decades, Volkswagen Beetle Retires

Volkswagen Ceases The Production of The Popular 'Beetle' After 21 Years

It's the end of the line for the iconic Volkswagen Beetle. The final model rolls off the assembly line in Mexico today after more than 70 years of production. The facility will be retooled to create a new compact SUV for the North American market. The company stopped producing the original version of the Beetle in 2003. After that the automaker created two more generations of the bug in 1998 and 2012. The last Beetle that rolls off the line will be on display at a Volkswagen museum in Puebla, Mexico.
