One of the automotive industry’s most recognizable and legendary models is on the way out. The 2019 Volkswagen Beetle Final Edition will be the last Beetle ever produced, ending a remarkable run that has launched the Beetle among the most distinctive models ever sold.
“The loss of the Beetle after three generations, over nearly seven decades, will evoke a host of emotions from the Beetle’s many devoted fans,” said Hinrich J. Woebcken, President and CEO, Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.
“As we move to being a full-line, family-focused automaker in the U.S. and ramp up our electrification strategy with the MEB platform, there are no immediate plans to replace it. But as we have seen with the I.D. BUZZ—which is the modern and practical interpretation of the legendary Bus—I would also say, ‘Never say never.’ We’re excited to kick off a year of celebrating one of the true icons of the automotive world, with a series of events that will culminate in the end of production in Puebla in July 2019.”
A 174-horsepower 2.0-liter engine will power the 2019 Volkswagen Beetle Final Edition which will be fully equipped and available in both Coupe and Convertible versions.
