The final Volkswagen Beetle rolled off the production line at Puebla Mexico at 2.30pm on July 10, 2019. RIP Beetle. It is now the first time in the company’s over 80-year history that a Beetle in one form or another has not been produced.
The last car, a 2.5 liter Stonewashed Blue Final Edition with Disc wheels, will be sent to Volkswagen de Mexico’s museum in Puebla and is a tribute to the Aquarius Blue Beetle Ultima Edicions and New Beetle Final Editions that marked the end of their respective productions.
Volkswagen USA, meanwhile, will celebrate the model by keeping the last two destined for the USA. The cars, each finished in Kings Red and sporting custom dashes and keys, will join VW USA’s heritage collection.
