German automaker Volkswagen has confirmed that after the current generation of its famous Beetle, it will cease production of the iconic car completely, Autocar reported last week.
Head of Technical Development for VW Brand Frank Welsch made the announcement at the Geneva Motor Show held last week.
“Two or three generations is enough now” for the Beetle. With the car made with history in mind, “you can’t do it five times and have a new new new Beetle” according to Welsch.
Manufactured first in 1938, Volkswagon ended production of the Beetle in 2003 but brought the car back in 2011.
Welsch also announced that the reborn electric Microbus will serve as the retro-inspired model of the Beetle, while the T-Roc convertible will serve as a Beetle Cabriolet replacement.
