VW pulls the plug on Bee­tle

Auto Today - - Update! -

EAR­LIER THIS month, Ger­man car­maker Volk­swa­gen an­nounced that the iconic Bee­tle will bid adieu to the world as the com­pany will stop its pro­duc­tion next year. Af­ter al­most 7 decades, the com­pany has de­cided to pull the plug on the Bee­tle, as the sales have re­duced and the com­pany is now con­cern­trat­ing mass mar­ket prod­ucts. To cel­e­brate this last hoorah, Volk­swa­gen in­tro­duced the Bee­tle Fi­nal Edi­tion in both coupe and con­vert­ible body styles. The new Bee­tle will share re­sem­blance to the last Bee­tle pro­duced at the com­pany’s Mex­ico plant back in 2003 and will be on sale till the end of next year.

But fret not, as the com­pany has no in­ten­tion of putting the Bee­tle to bed, as the com­pany will soon in­tro­duce an elec­tric ver­sion of the Bee­tle. VW is cur­rently work­ing on its EV strat­egy and the Bee­tle is very much part of it, and we will get some more in­for­ma­tion on this in the com­ing months.
